Kanye West has reached a pleasant end to his long-gestating legal saga concerning the unexpected cancellation of 2016’s ‘Saint Pablo’ tour. As reported by TMZ, insurance agency Lloyd’s of London has opted to settle with Ye out of court.
Kanye initially filed suit for $10 million against the insurers, who refused to pay out in light of the tour cancellation following West’s very public breakdown. Lloyd’s claimed that Kanye’s erratic behavior stemmed from drug use, which made him ineligible to file a claim.
Despite the lengthy back and forth, the legal representative for Kanye’s touring company gave a statement to Pitchfork assuring that “the matter was amicably resolved.”
Is this what we have to thank for Kanye’s return to Instagram? Who’s to say, but it’s certainly been a good week for Mr. West.
