Offset denies fighting Quavo over Grammys Takeoff tribute

Offset has curtly denied rumours that he fought Quavo backstage at the 2023 Grammy Awards last weekend. Since the ceremony, fans have alleged that a fight broke out backstage between the Migos bandmates after the Takeoff tribute. 

During the Grammys ceremony last Sunday, Quavo led a poignant tribute to his late uncle and Migos bandmate Takeoff, who was shot and killed outside a bowling alley in Houston, Texas, last November. For his tribute, Quavo performed ‘Without You’, a track he released in Takeoff’s memory last month.

During the performance, Takeoff was not present, leading to ill-informed conjecture in the press and among fans. According to TMZ, Offset was initially due to perform for the tribute, but a disagreement had led to a change of plans; they also suggested a “physical fight” had taken place. Many fans then took to social media, further spreading rumours of a backstage bust-up. 

Offset has now come forward to deny such accusations. His curt tweet read: “What tf look like fighting my brother yal n****s is crazy.”

Following Takeoff’s death, Offset has been vocal about his heartbreak. He shared a moving tribute in Takeoff’s memory a few days after the incident, and later gave another tribute during a concert in Miami. After delaying the release of his second solo album out of respect, he admitted in December that it’s “not easy” to keep going in the wake of the tragic loss.

In December, police arrested a man under suspicion of Takeoff’s murder. It was later alleged that the suspect researched how to secure fake plane tickets to flee the US following the incident. However, he has asserted his innocence and was granted release from jail in January following a $1million jail bond.
