Kanye West Countersued by Lloyds of London in Saint Pablo Tour Lawsuit
Last November, Kanye West famously canceled his Saint Pablo Tour with sources claiming the reason was exhaustion. Kanye would end up filing a $10 million lawsuit against the insurance syndicate, Lloyd's of London, for allegedly stalling on the insurance payout owed to West from the canceled tour dates. Today (Aug. 30), according to TMZ, Lloyd's of London is countersuing Kanye West's touring company, Very Good Touring.
According to TMZ, Lloyd's countersuit accuses Kanye of withholding the information necessary to determine whether they'll pay him for pulling out of the tour. TMZ also claims the countersuit hints at Kanye doing something that triggered their exclusion policy regarding the use of substances.
In a statement received by TMZ, Kanye's attorney, Howard King, explains the perceived reasoning behind Lloyd of London's actions, saying their 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."
The Kanye news this summer wasn't all negative. Earlier this month, it was rumored Kanye and Kid Cudi were in Japan working on a secret project. A source in Page Six explained ‘Ye and Cudi’s work is top secret. “They’re going to drop some crazy collaboration out of the blue,” said the source. “They’re going to drop some surprise project on everybody. They’re recording it now.”
Hopefully, if a Ye and Cudi collab is on the way, we get a tour that finishes off where the Saint Pablo one started.
