The singer, who announced in September that he is now to be known as Ye, was attending the opening night of The Cher Show with wife Kim Kardashian West in New York.

Actor Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono in the Broadway production of the musical, tweeted:

Ye responded with an apology on Twitter, writing: “The dynamics of Cher and Sonny’s relationship made Kim and I grab each other’s hand and sing ‘I got you babe’ please pardon my lack of etiquette. We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece.”

West has used the nickname Ye for many years before switching to it as his main moniker this year. He also used it as the title of his June album.

The Cher Show tells the story of singer Cher and her rise to fame.

The tagline on the show’s official website reads: “Superstars come and go. Cher is forever.”
