AUSTIN (KXAN) — The singer BØRNS will no longer perform at weekend two of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

It was unclear what prompted the decision to remove him from the lineup. Borns performed on the first day of the festival on Oct. 5.

Garrett Clark Borns, 26, who goes by the stage name BØRNS, posted on his social media last month that he was hurt and angered over “disturbing and false allegations” made against him.

Variety reported in September the singer was facing allegations of sexual misconduct from multiple young female fans.

“All of the relationships I have had were legal and consensual,” Borns said on Sept. 25. “They ended abruptly and that obviously caused hurt feelings, but for anyone to suggest anything beyond that is irresponsible.”

Requests for comment from Austin City Limits have not been returned.
