    walk out on her

    "SOMETIMES BE LATE,
    SOMETIMES NOT BE GOOD WHEN SHE WENT ON.
    BUT SHE KIND OF DID IT TO HERSELF, YOU KNOW,
    IF SOME OF THE AUDIENCE WALKED OUT ON HER."

    What is the meaning of "walked out on her" I can't understand the highlighted sentence. It's not clear at all.

    Thanks a lot.

    Sometimes she was late. Sometimes when she performed she was not good. It was her own fault if some of the audience walked out on her (left the concert/theatre/venue).

    Re: walk out on her

    walk out:(1)to leave a place suddenly, especially because you disapprove of something.The play was awful and we walked out after half an hour(2)to leave your husband, wife etc suddenly and go and live somewhere else
    Five years later she walked out on Matthew and their two boys.

    Thanks a lot for this thorough explanation

    you are right but it's just "went on" can have million meanings and also "her own fault" I coudn't found any meaning in any dictionay.
    I understood it as "She sometimes has a bad behaviour"!!

    Thanks a gain.
