The rapper Tyga still plans to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival in December, despite his recent legal troubles over allegations of domestic violence.

Sources with knowledge of the festival’s lineup told TMZ on Friday that Rolling Loud would not drop the 31-year-old rapper, despite the controversy that will arise from having an accused abuser on stage.

Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend was arrested Tuesday morning after turning himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department, the outlet reported.

Not Canceled: Tyga is still on the bill for December’s Rolling Loud Festival in California, despite his domestic violence arrest on Tuesday, TMZ reported Friday; seen in August at the MTV VMAs

Tyga is currently on the Rolling Loud lineup, performing on Saturday, December 11 for the three-day festival to be held in San Bernardino, California.

The rapper’s ability to avoid cancellation for alleged domestic violence comes as a surprise, as other music festivals have been quick to remove contaminated acts in recent months.

In July, DaBaby sparked a controversy over homophobic comments he made onstage at Rolling Loud’s Miami edition.

After the controversy, he was quickly expelled from other summer festival lineups, which he exacerbated by issuing a half-hearted apology before taking it back.

Tyga was also performing again on Thursday night, just days after his arrest.

Sources tell TMZ that the Rack City rapper “felt he had an obligation” to perform at the nightclub in Southern California’s Orange County.

The allegations of domestic violence did not seem to keep his friends and family away, who reportedly joined him at the club for support.

The sources also say that Tyga has no intention of keeping his head low amid his current legal troubles, and he will still show up in any venue that wants him.

On Tuesday, DailyMail.com confirmed that the musician had been arrested for “domestic violence felony” after voluntarily turning himself in.

A booking form obtained by DailyMail.com shows that Tyga – whose real name is Michael Ray Stevenson – had his bail set at $50,000.

TMZ first reported that the Grammy-nominated rapper had turned himself in to be sued by his now ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson.

His representative, Jack Ketsoyan of EMCBOWERY, told DailyMail.com in a statement: “The allegations you have read about our client in recent days are false and will be refuted.”

Tyga was pictured being released from prison as he left the Hollywood police station on Tuesday after his bail was paid.

The Compton-born hitmaker had a dispute with the 22-year-old influencer at his $12.8 million Bel-Air mansion around 3 a.m. Monday morning.

Sources close to Tyga claim Camaryn arrived at his home and “behaved belligerently” outside, but it was when the two went inside that the violence reportedly escalated.

That same day, Camaryn shared horrifying images of her black eye and bloodstained sweater.

“I didn’t show up ‘screaming’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave, he physically attacked and refused to let me leave for hours,” Swanson claimed via Instastory.

“I’ve been abused emotionally, mentally and physically and I can’t hide it anymore… I’m so ashamed and ashamed that it had to come to this, but I have to stand up for myself.”

The Atlanta-born blonde also had receipts and shared a text from Tyga (née Micheal Ray Nguyen-Stevenson) at 7:14 a.m. Monday that read, “Horses so much.”

Camaryn’s response at 9:45 am was, “I can’t believe this is how it’s supposed to end. Frankly, I’m so heartbroken and didn’t think you’d ever be able to do this to me.’
