The rapper settled a longstanding lawsuit against insurance company Lloyd's of London, who refused to pay for losses that incurred from the canceled gigs. Lloyd's withheld payments, saying drug and alcohol abuse led to Yeezy's unraveling, claims that Kanye's people said were baseless. In response to the insurer stalling on the payout, Kanye's touring company, Very Good Touring, ended up suing Lloyd's for approximately $10 million. Lloyd's later counter-sued.
Ultimately, Lloyd's figured it was too risky to go head to head with Kanye's lawyers in court. Rather than take the risk of losing and having to pay even more in penalties, the company and Kanye have come to an agreement. In a statement provided to Pitchfork, an attorney representing West’s Very Good Touring, said that “the matter was amicably resolved.”
Kanye pulled the plug on his remaining Saint Pablo tour dates and spent time at UCLA Medical Center in November 2016. Kanye has kept a relatively low profile since his hospitalization, but is rumored to be working on a new album.
Meanwhile, Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, is going through some legal problems of her own. Blac Chyna has sued the reality television star for allegedly plotting and successfully carrying out the cancellation of her E! series Rob & Chyna.
