Kanye West appears to be willing to make some order in his life. The famous rapper is said to have filed a lawsuit over the tour that was canceled last year when Kanye suffered a mental breakdown. Allegedly, Kanye is seeking no less than 10 million dollars in damages.
It is widely known that Kanye was hospitalized around Thanksgiving Day in 2016. The popular singer received treatment at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center. Kanye had to deal with a lot of care and treatment until he returned to the spotlight. Hollywood Reporter revealed that Kanye actually underwent a very expensive medical examination. The celebrity site obtained documents related to the lawsuit filed by Kanye.
Kanye claimed that insurer Lloyd’s is trying to stiff him over his insurance claim. Kanye’s touring company, Very Good Touring, is the one which initially filed the insurance claim. The filing dates back to November, 2016. Allegedly, the company booked an insurance claim to cover any cancellation or non-appearances fees. However, Lloyd’s refused to pay the money, so Very Good Touring filed a lawsuit against the company. The company is seeking to obtain no less than 9.8 million dollars in damages.
But, why is Lloyd’s refusing to pay the money? Well, it has been claimed that the official reason cited by Lloyd has been Kanye’s alleged use of marijuana. “They [have not] provided anything approaching a coherent explanation about why they have not paid or any indication if they will ever pay or even make a coverage decision, implying that Kanye’s use of marijuana may provide them with the basis to deny the claim,” a lawyer for Kanye said according to BBC.
The lawyer also claimed that marijuana use has nothing to do with the fact that Kanye dealt with a “serious, debilitating medication condition.” Lloyd has made no official comments at this stage, saying that the company does not comment on pending litigation. It is yet to see which will be the outcome of this lawsuit and if Kanye will really get the sought money in compensation.
