Teyana Taylor tweets that she’s dropping out of Jeremih’s Later That Night Tour over claims of being “extremely mistreated.”

The 27-year-old announced Wednesday that she will not perform the remaining dates of the tour’s North American run, adding that things might get violent between her and the “Don’t Tell Em” singer if she stays.  

“I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note i will NO longer continue to stay on the #LaterThatNightTour,” she wrote in an expletive-laded series of tweets.

The latest Playboy cover star slammed Jeremih’s “diva” work ethic, and used adjectives including “jealous” and “conniving” to describe him on social media.

Jeremih appeared to respond to Taylor’s claims on Instagram with a  clip of Lil Duval singing in his music video with Snoop Dogg, “Smile”:  “I’m living my best life. I ain’t going back and forth with you…”

The Chicago-native captioned the post, #KTSE, which likely stands for “Keep That Same Energy, the name of Taylor’s latest album.

In response, Taylor fired back with an Instagram post of her performing in front of crowded audience. It was captioned: “nobody (is) coming to see you.” 

Taylor didn’t go into detail about how she was “mistreated.” However, she did say in retweets of fans that her name was left off some of the tour’s promotional material, including show tickets and Snapchat filters.

Taylor promised supporters will get their money back. “I’m sorry to all who has already purchased tickets to see me I will make sure everyone gets refunded!” she tweeted.

USA TODAY has reached out to Jeremih’s representatives for further comment. 

Taylor, who is signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label, burst onto the scene at the VMAs two years ago with the debut of her Flashdance-esque performance on West’s “Fade” music video. The Harlem native is married to basketball player Iman Shumpert, and the two of them share a child.
