After filing a $10 million lawsuit against Lloyd’s of London, saying the insurer has not paid him over his cancelled “Saint Pablo Tour”, the company has countersued.
According to TMZ, Lloyd’s has countersued Kanye’s Very Good Touring company, claiming he’s yet to prove that they are obligated to cover the losses from his canceled tour after he suffered a mental breakdown.
The company does not specifically state that Kanye was using drugs or booze, but claims he did something to trigger the policy exclusions referring to using substances.
In Kanye’s original lawsuit, he claims Lloyd’s was dragging its feet on a claim he filed nearly a year ago… implying that his use of marijuana was a “basis to deny the claim”.
Kanye’s attorney, Howard King, tells TMZ the countersuit “is the same generic response Lloyd’s files when they don’t want to honor a legitimate claim but can’t find a factual basis to deny the claim.”
Kanye is seeking a $10 million judgement, while Lloyd’s wants a judge to deny the rapper’s claim and they not pay anything.
