Kanye West Sued Over $7M Unfulfilled Payment

Kanye West is being sued by a production company for unfulfilled promises of payment which have totaled over $7million.

The 45-year-old artist is at the centre of a lawsuit by Phantom Labs who worked on multiple massive projects with the hitmaker from June 2021 to March 2022 according to a TMZ report on Thursday.

The production company had worked on four weeks of his Sunday Service, a listening event for Donda 2, the Free Larry Hoover concert in LA with Drake, and even his 2022 Coachella performance which was cancelled according to the publication.

Phantom Labs attorney Howard King said that the All Of The Lights rapper and his team were fine with making payments at first but then they began to pile up as the production company claims they were owed over $6million by February.

The legal documents also say that Ye had allegedly promised to settle his debt with Phantom Labs using the money he was supposed to make from his headlining gig at 2022 Coachella which was reportedly $9million.

However the artist pulled out just weeks before the gig and Phantom Labs claimed that it soon became clear that he wasn’t going to pay.

The production company is suing Ye for breach of contract in addition to other things as they want him to pay $7.1million that they claim they are owed plus more on-top.

Back in April, the artist famously pulled out of his headlining gig at Coachella months after he was banned from the Grammys for his concerning online behaviour and attacks against ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Pete Davidson.

He was replaced by The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia despite there being less than two weeks leading up to the festival.

This comes just days after it was reported that Ye is being sued by fashion archivist David Casavant for not returning 13 of the 49 pieces of clothing he rented to him back in March 2020.

The 31-year-old stylist, collector, and consultant is coming for the 45-year-old rapper-designer for $221K in unpaid rental fees and $195K to replace the missing 13 ‘rare, esteemed pieces’ – according to TMZ.

Among the 49 items listed in David’s invoice was a heavily-distressed vintage blue denim jacket designed by Helmut Lang.

Ye famously wore a vintage Helmut Lang jean jacket in the b&w music video for Rihanna’s 2015 song FourFiveSeconds, which was directed by Inez & Vinoodh.
