Few have forgotten the sequence of events surrounding Kanye West cancelling the remainder of his ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour last year, a saga that began with his now-infamous concert rant. But it seems that said saga is far from over; West has reportedly just filed a whopping $10 million lawsuit addressing his period of hospitalization following the tour cancellation.
The lawsuit, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, has been filed against Lloyd’s of London, an insurer that West and his touring company, Very Good Touring, Inc., enlisted for the ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour. The rapper sought out the firm in the hopes of getting some “peace of mind” should he have to cancel any performances.
Obviously, West ended up cancelling a great many of his planned shows, but the suit suggests that Lloyd’s has yet to make any kind of payment to West and his team in the now nine months since cutting the tour short. They are reportedly questioning the legitimacy of West’s breakdown, citing that Kanye’s “marijuana use” would disqualify him despite a wealth of medical examinations conducted shortly after the fateful Sacramento concert in November.
As of press time, neither West nor Lloyd’s of London have commented on the lawsuit. Be sure to read the full complaint right here.
