Kanye West's legal troubles are far from over. The rapper will be returning to court next year over his label YEEZY breeching a contract with Japanese fabric company Toki Sen-I Co. The Japanese fabric company is once again suing West for $600,000.

According to Yahoo Entertainment, newly surfaced court documents reveal that a judge has partially sided with the Japanese fashion company suing West. Toki Sen-I Co. maintains that West refused to pay the $624,051 amount he owes for his cancelled order of 53,000 yards of fleece fabric. The fabric company claims that it has since offered West various payment plans, to no avail. On the other hand, West is demanding the case be thrown out, arguing that Toki Sen-I Co. never delivered the product “as promised,” and therefore  refuses to pay the company for its work or for fabric storage fees.

Nevertheless, the case will officially head to trial on May 11, 2020.

Back in January it was revealed that Kanye West and his label YEEZY were being sued for failing to pay the fabric vendor more than $600,000 in outstanding debts., as reported by People. According to the report, the lawsuit was filed against Yeezy Apparel, LLC and stated that West attempted to trick Toki Sen-I Co. out of money by "creating a fake company."

The fabric company, which says it started working with West in 2015, said the problems began when West placed a huge order for fleece fabrics in June 2018 and then refused to meet the downpayment.

Toki Sen-I Co. claimed that Yeezy Apparel, LLC is a "sham" company operating without capital assets or member interest run by West to avoid personal liability.

However, the judge presiding over the case in the Superior Court of California initially sided with YEEZY. YEEZY and West's lawyers lodged a demurrer — basically a response to a complaint that says even if it is true, there is no basis for a lawsuit — against Toki Sen-I Co.'s four causes of action. Judge Cotton sustained the demurrer, allowing Toki Sen-I Co. to rework its complaints with more precise terms.
