As OK! readers know, Travis Scott recently agreed to perform at the Super Bowl LIII Half Time Show in February — but not before he discussed it with former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick, or so sources say! Scroll through to get all the details.
While many stars, like Rihanna, took part in a fan-made petition asking artists to drop out of the big game in an effort to support Colin amid his current situation with the NFL, Travis still decided to accept the league's invitation to perform.
Many people said the "Sicko Mode" star shouldn't perform in protest for the sportsman — who was banished from the league for his #TakeAKnee movement, which had him and several other NFL players refuse to stand during the national anthem at games in protest against police brutality and racial injustice.
Travis has taken a lot of criticism for agreeing to join Maroon 5 on stage at the NFL game next month. He attempted to ease the tension with the $500,000 donation he and the NFL agreed to make to non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps.
While sources told Variety that the rapper had '"at least one" phone conversation with the NFL player before he confirmed his appearance, Colin's friends are calling the publication out, denying that the conversation ever happened.
Variety explained that while they did not necessarily see eye-to-eye, they ended the chat with a "mutual respect and understanding." Ebro Darden, a 97 radio host, tweeted, "Kap did not approve this bulls**t! Get the f**k out of here."
The athlete then re-tweeted his friend's words and his girlfriend, Nessa, responded to Ebro's tweet, "FACTS @EBRO!!! THEY NEED TO STOP LYING." She later added, "There is NO mutual respect and there is NO understanding for anyone working against @Kaepernick7 PERIOD.
