Kanye West Sues Insurance Company Over Canceled Saint Pablo Tour

The rapper has filed a lawsuit against an insurance company regarding payment for his canceled Saint Pablo Tour.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kanye West and his touring company, Very Good Touring, Inc., have accused insurance company Lloyd's of London of breach of contract, as well as breach of good faith and fair dealing.

West alleges that Lloyd's of London has avoided payment after his team filed claims when the rapper checked into a psychiatric facility—and has neglected to pay up for more than eight months. And, according to new info, the insurers may be trying to avoid coughing up money for West's claim because of his suspected drug use.

Court docs obtained by THR note, "Nor have they 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 a basis to deny the claim and retain the hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums paid by Very Good."

The complaint, filed in California on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017, continues, "The stalling is emblematic of a broader modus operandi of the insurers of never-ending post-claim underwriting where the insurers hunt for some contrived excuse not to pay."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, West, 40, canceled his remaining Saint Pablo tour dates due to exhaustion and stress after his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. But his sudden tour cancellation wasn't what had fans worried. In November 2016, West went off on a rant about everyone from Beyoncé and Jay-Z to Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg.  

He was soon hospitalized and made to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
