Kanye West and his touring company Very Good Touring, Inc. filed a $10 million lawsuit against Lloyd’s of London — an insurance company-like operation. West’s team claimed that the company did not pay out insurance claims that derived from the cancellation of his ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour. “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 suit read. “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.”

Not too long after Kanye’s suit, Lloyd’s of London filed a countersuit saying that West’s cancellation reasons were not beyond his control, therefore annulling the insurance claims. Earlier today, Very Good Touring responded to the countersuit by denying Lloyd’s’ allegations. Although the countersuit does not say why the cancellation was within Kanye’s control, they do list that insurance policy is exempt from any cases involving drug and/or alcohol usage, as well as any preexisting medical conditions. In a document obtained by Pitchfork, Kanye’s team denies that the reasons provided by Lloyd’s are not legitimate to hold back West’s insurance money. Read the full document below.
