Summary: Kanye West said that Lloyd’s of London owes him for losses due to his canceled Saint Pablo Tour.

Kanye West wants an insurance company to pay $10 million for last year’s canceled Saint Pablo Tour. On Tuesday, the troubled rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian sued Lloyd’s of London, stating that the insurer failed to pay almost $9.8 million in concert losses.


West’s lawsuit was filed by his representatives, Very Good Touring. It said that the insurance company refused to pay for the concert losses created by his medical problems, and it alleged the insurer did not provide a concrete reason for failure to pay.

“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 lawsuit said.

In the lawsuit, West and his legal team claimed that the insurer also leaked confidential medical information about his mental illness to the press.

Last year, West canceled numerous concert appearances for a variety of reasons. For one, he missed a few dates after Kardashian was robbed in Paris, and he also missed dates when he was hospitalized at UCLA on November 21, 2016.

The reason for West’s time at UCLA was undisclosed, but it is rumored he was there to treat a mental illness and exhaustion. Before he was checked in, West made several bizarre comments at his concerts. On stage at San Jose, he voiced his support of President Donald Trump, a Republican who is not typically favored by West’s audience, and in Sacramento, he rambled negatively about his former best friends, Jay-Z and Beyonce.

West’s rant about Jay-Z and his wife eventually led to a lawsuit between the rappers where West claimed that Jay-Z and his company Tidal owed him money and Jay-Z said Kanye was in breach of contract.

West’s company said that his insurance plan covers losses due to “accidental bodily injury or illness” and that his time at UCLA qualifies. In the lawsuit, it stated that West had submitted to Lloyd’s all the required documentation but that the insurer had failed to reply.

Very Good Touring is suing for breach of contract and is seeking damages of almost $10 million. They requested a jury trial.

LLoyd’s of London told The Guardian that they would not comment on active litigation.
