Kanye West's longtime producer Mike Dean (left) sparked rumors when he appeared to announce he was quitting the Donda project.

Dean, a producer, audio engineer and songwriter on Kanye's albums, sparked rampant speculation when he tweeted and deleted: "F--K THIS!" on Saturday.

The 56-year-old producer moved into the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta at Kanye's request on July 23 to finish the delayed Donda album.

He regularly shared photos taken inside the temporary Donda Studio at the stadium.

But Dean surprised his followers when he tweeted and deleted "F--K THIS! then tweeted about the "toxic stadium air".

He also deleted all of his Donda studio photos from Instagram.

He then tweeted: "Good to be at the house!!!"

As word spread that Kanye's producer had bailed on the Donda project, Dean took to Twitter to insist he's still very much involved in the album.

"I haven't quit anything. The album continues. Lol. People read too much into tweets. Lol."

Dean claimed he was tired of Kanye fans stalking his timeline asking when the album will drop.

Last week, Kanye's collaborator KayCyy tweeted then deleted: "We moving to another stadium."

However, on Thursday, Aug. 12, an insider texted Sandrarose.com: "HE'S STILL THERE!!!"

The fact that Kanye's producer has left the stadium may be a sign that stadium officials finally convinced Kanye to leave, too.

Or maybe not.

Kanye was spotted high up in the stadium rafters watching an Atlanta Falcons preseason football game on Saturday.
