Looks like Kanye West is being sued by the same people he’s suing. Last month, Yeezy filed a $10 million lawsuit against insurance company Lloyd’s of London in efforts to recover money he claims he’s owed due to the cancellation of his Saint Pablo tour. Now they are countersuing!
According the reports, the company is asking a Los Angeles federal judge to rule that they don’t have to pay the rapper because the reason for his cancelled tour was “not beyond [his] control.” Lloyd’s of London claims he had “a preexisting psychological condition, possession of illegal drugs, prescription drugs not taken as medically prescribed, and the consumption of alcohol rendering the insured unfit to perform.”
The countersuit also states that Kanye’s team was uncooperative, adding they “delayed, hindered, stalled and or refused to provide information both relevant and necessary” to their investigation into his claim.
In response, Kanye’s attorney Howard King told TMZ that the countersuit “is the same generic response Lloyd’s files when they don’t want to honor a legitimate claim but can’t find a factual basis to deny the claim.”
You may recall Kanye canceled his Saint Pablo tour and was hospitalized back in November 2016. This was around the same time of his multiple onstage rants.
