Lawsuit Behind Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour Has Been Settled

Lawsuit Behind Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour Has Been Settled

In 2016, the rapper pulled the remainder of his tour dates in support of his album The Life of Pablo following a spate of shows peppered with political rants and abrupt stage departures.

After trying to undercut West's claim for lost expenses, the Chicago superstar opened up a $10 million lawsuit.

Then just a few weeks after that, Lloyd's Of London made a decision to flip the script and countersue the Very Good Touring company.

At that time, West canceled the remaining 21 dates of his tour due to a serious and debilitating medical condition. Lawyers for Lloyd's of London also denied implying that the rapper's "use of marijuana provides the sole basis to deny the claim" and said there were "substantial irregularities" in his medical history. Kanye abandoned the tour and checked into a psychiatric care center following "strained, confused and erratic" behavior.

It sued Lloyd's in a California court for $9.9m (£7.1m), but lawyers for both sides have now said the case has been "amicably resolved", without giving further details.

A few weeks after West's lawsuit was filed, Lloyd's of London filed its own countersuit against the company, alleging that the star's reasons for the cancellation were "not beyond [his] control", and therefore denying his insurance claim. Last year, it was evident that King was upset over Lloyd's of London's refusal to pay West his insurance benefits. Lloyd's claimed drug use was an exclusion under the policy.
