Kid Cudi Knocked Out from Lady Gaga Tour

12/16/2009 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kid Cudi -- the guy who sings that "Day 'N Nite" song -- has been officially dropped from the Lady Gaga tour in the wake of a brutal fan-punching incident.

Sources at Interscope Records confirm the rapper is "no longer" with the tour -- but wouldn't say if the decision had anything to do with YouTube footage showing Cudi punching fans in the front row of a concert in Vancouver this past weekend.

We're told Jason Derulo -- the guy who sings "Whatcha Say" -- will move up from his spot as Gaga's opening act to fill Cudi's spot ... no word on who will fill-in Derulo's.

No comment from Lady Gaga's camp.

The story was first reported by The Ralphie Radio Show.

Kanye, now Kid Cudi? Lady Gaga should forget about touring with back up - more trouble than they're worth.

This was planned before the punching incident. It was announced awhile ago that Jason DeRulo was joining the tour end of December.

The Fact of the Matter    

Is that he chose to leave the tour. He has released a statement saying he needs to concentrate on his new album. Artists are so unpredictable man.

If he did this then he deserved to be dropped. That is so NOT A GA GA action. Spend thirty seconds listening to Lady Ga Ga speak and you will be able to tell she would not approve. She wants her concerts to be a safe place for all and I'm sure that does not include punching a fan. SHAME SHAME SHAME.

whatever777 and Janet, you're both a bunch of racist goofs that needs to get a life. As far as Kid Cudi being kicked off. I think to get kicked off or passed over for fighting is ridiculous, and I believe Lady Gaga or her camp simply didn't want any rappers on tour. Now Kanye West not touring with Gaga I understand, because his ego is too big for the both!
