Kanye West Files $10 Million Lawsuit Over Canceled 'Saint Pablo Tour'

In addition to not being paid, there has not been a reasonable explanation as to why or an idea of when they will be paid.

The Saint Pablo tour was originally planned for 38 shows in 2016, between August 12 and November 2. The star made most of the dates but was forced to cancel two concerts when his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France on October 2, 2016.

West announced that he would add extra shows to the successful tour to accommodate fans.

West canceled several scheduled concert appearances previous year.

"By the following day..." Even though he was hospitalized at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center around Thanksgiving, few knew the full extent of what West endured in the aftermath of a psychological breakdown.

In the documents, first obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, West claims he and his company paid "hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums" and claims the insurers are hunting "for some contrived excuse not to pay".

Very Good Touring says Lloyd's has no proof to back up its weed theory, and is merely looking for "any ostensible excuse no matter how fanciful" to deny payment on the policy.

The suit contends that West has cooperated fully with the insurer's investigation, and was evaluated by a doctor hired by the insurer's attorneys.

"Kanye was made available for a purported IME by a doctor, hand-selected by the insurers' counsel, who was predisposed to look for some reason to deny the claim". Per the suit, West continues to to be treated by the primary physician who oversaw his care at UCLA and that doctor has confirmed in sworn testimony that West "suffered a debilitating medical condition, requiring that Kanye not continue with the tour". The insurers then demanded West, and at least 11 other affiliates, participate in an examination under oath. The suit also alleges that instead of responding to Very Good's inquiries about the claim, the insurers have continued to note provisions that may allow them to deny the claim while not stating whether or not those provisions "apply to the facts or serve to preclude coverage".

But Lloyd's was apparently not satisfied with this assessment and, per the suit, began to take measures to rebuff the claim. West is alleging breach of contract and a breach of good faith and fair dealing.

Lawyers for West allege that the entertainer and his company Very Good Touring Inc. have not been paid - and the insurance giant is intentionally stalling.
