DETROIT (AP) — The owners of Little Caesars Arena, which houses Kid Rock's restaurant, say the musician won't renew his licensing agreement for the eatery.

The news comes after Kid Rock was recently filmed delivering a vulgarity-laced rant against Oprah Winfrey.

An Ilitch Holdings official said Wednesday Kid Rock “voluntarily decided” not to renew the deal coming up in April for the Little Caesars Arena restaurant.

Apparent cellphone video obtained by TMZ shows Kid Rock onstage recently at his Nashville steakhouse, using graphic language to convey his dislike of Winfrey or Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” talk show.

The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment from a spokesman for Kid Rock.
