West’s booking has proved a controversial move, with a recent petition against the rapper performing attracting over 133,000 votes.

Now, Ladbrokes have revealed that they’ve given West the odds of 2/1 to walk off stage at Glastonbury after being booed by the crowd. The bookies also say there’s a 5/4 chance that the star will be an hour or more late. See their odds in full below.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes says: “Kanye’s headline spot is still a touchy subject, and after a few alcoholic beverages it seems increasingly likely the crowd will turn against him. All bets are off when it comes to Kim being heckled.”

Ladbrokes’ odds on Kanye West at Glastonbury:

Kanye West to be booed off stage – 2/1
Kanye West to be an hour or more late – 5/4
Kanye West not to perform a song – 10/1
Kim Kardashian to be booed by the crowd – 1/20
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian to mud wrestle – 100/1
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian to sleep in a tent – 500/1

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters have defended Kanye West ahead of his Glastonbury appearance, comparing the rapper with hip-hop veterans Public Enemy.

In a video interview with the NME which you can watch below, frontman Dave Grohl also said the recent petition against West will only help West’s cause.

“I don’t know that much about Kanye’s music but right now Kanye vs Glastonbury is about as close to that old-school [Public Enemy] vibe as you’re going to get,” he added.

“I don’t know who the dude is that started the petition but I think every one of those votes is only fuelling Kanye’s fucking fire and it could be the greatest show of all time.”
