Contrary to numerous reports, Childish Gambino might not actually be extending his current headlining tour by five dates, with Tyler, The Creator serving as an additional opening guest alongside Rae Sremmurd, according to Fam Udeorji, one-half of the management company Wolf & Rothstein.

"Stupid ass Billboard ran a story from a fake account and every music publication picked it up w/ no confirmation from real sources," Udeorji tweeted. "The internet has no real consequences or accountability."

The fake account Udeorji is alluding to in his tweet is a Donald Glover fan page on Instagram, who, on Wednesday, retracted its initial post and issued an apology.

We have reached out to Udeorji to confirm that the five "extra dates" displayed in the above Instagram post are in fact erroneous and not just the product of an accidental or unintended early news leak.

For a complete list of Gambino's 13 (confirmed) tour dates, beginning in Atlanta on September 6, fans can head over to his website.
