Kanye West's touring company is suing insurance company Lloyd's of London to get their money back for the shortened Saint Pablo tour, and says the insurer is trying is claiming Kanye’s breakdown was due to his pot use.
Very Good Touring filed a claim with Lloyd's back in November. Kanye's company says it had a policy with Lloyd's to cover cancellation or non-appearance fees. However, Lloyd's has yet to fork over a dime and, the suit suggests it might not EVER, because they suspect Kanye's pot use caused his breakdown.
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.
Kanye’s company is suing Lloyd's for $9.8 million, plus interest.
