"Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, The Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international Anti World Tour," a statement from Live Nation sent Wednesday morning (March 23) reads.

A source also tells Billboard, "[Abel] has hit a stride on his new album and decided not to interrupt the process." 

The "Can't Feel My Face" hitmaker was slated to join Riri's Euro-trip, which kicks off overseas in Amsterdam on June 17. 

Travis Scott is currently opening Rihanna's shows across America. Drake also popped up for her recent Miami show for a live rendition of their ongoing chart-topper "Work."
