Kanye West is Suing Insurer Over Canceled Tour Dates

UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — U.S. music artist Kanye West is suing his insurance company for nearly $10 million over canceled shows.

On Aug. 1, West’s tour company, Very Good Touring, filed a lawsuit against Lloyd’s of London insurance company in federal court in Los Angeles.

The lawsuit is based on events from November last year, when West canceled over 20 dates of his Saint Pablo Tour and was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation.

West reportedly submitted a claim to Lloyd’s last year to cover the cost of the canceled dates, but according to the lawsuit, no payments have been made as yet.

The tour company says its contract with the insurance company has been breached and the insurance company is contractually obligated to cover the costs of canceled dates.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a spokesperson for Lloyd’s has declined to comment on the case.
