With news that the band has cancelled part of their North American tour, the Kings of Leon are now dealing with break-up rumors.
On Friday, front man Caleb Followill left the stage in the middle of a show in Dallas, leaving his band mates to apologize to the sweltering crowd. The Kings of Leon were just four songs into the show, reports the Daily Beast.
An official statement was released the next day, citing that the Followill had suffered from heat exhaustion and dehydration, affecting his vocal cords. Temperatures had shot up to the high-90s, according to E!,
Followill's band mate and brother, Jared, has continued to use Twitter to express his frustration about the weekend incident and now, to address break-up rumors. And he's been doing it with a sprinkle of humor.
"Don't jump to conclusions guys. We're not breaking up. BRB. Just got a text from Nathan . . . Ummm . . . Eesh. So about what I just said . . .," the younger Followill wrote on his Twitter account on Monday.
"Kidding! Kidding! Not breaking up," he continued.
Drummer Nathan Followill echoed the same message.
"Bummed about tour not happening. So sorry 4 all the fans. We just need some rest. Thanks 4 understanding. WE ARE NOT BREAKING UP!" he wrote.
The Kings of Leon have not been shy about showing their emotions on and off stage. In April, the band released "Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon," a documentary that included raw footage of their family in Tennessee, their religious upbringing and a confrontation between the lead singer and his cousin Nathan.
The band will return to the stage when their tour picks up in Vancouver on Sept. 28.
