Did Coachella Try to Stiff Its New Headliner, The Weeknd?

The Weeknd and Swedish Hosue Mafia are the new Coachella headliners after Kanye West dropped out.  The Weeknd allegedly threatened to drop out because they tried to pay him less than Ye’s salary, which was $8 million.

Well, apparently the organizers weren’t intending on spending the same amount.  A source says Kanye was supposed to earn $8 million, plus a $500,000 production fee.  But they only offered The Weeknd “a few million.”

Well, The Weeknd found out and threatened to drop out of the show.  There’s no word exactly how Ye’s space is being divided.  Do they each share his stage, but get short set times?  Do they get their own stage?  Are they performing TOGETHER?  Also . . . how much is Swedish House Mafia being paid?
