BROCKHAMPTON have kicked founding member Ameer Vann out of the group. The decision comes in light of a string of allegations against the artist by several women detailing instances of abuse. The group shared the news in a note posted to their Twitter, wherein they also announced they would be cancelling the remainder of their tour to “regroup”. Read their message below:
Vann’s ouster comes right at the time of BROCKHAMPTON’S planned release of PUPPY, their debut album proper and their first under their multi-million dollar contract with RCA. Last week, frontman Kevin Abstract announced in a series of Instagram live videos that record’s release will “probably” be delayed, though no official statement has been given regarding its status as of press time.
