Kanye West Is Suing Insurance Company Big For Cancelled Tour

By HHL Editors

Kanye West insured his doomed Saint Pablo tour with Lloyd's Of London.

'Ye then had to famously cancel the tour after suffering a nervous breakdown which resulted in him spending eight days in a mental facility.

However, Lloyd's did not pay Kanye's touring company Very Good Touring a dime for the cancelled tour because they say Kanye's marijuana use caused his breakdown.

So VGT is now suing Lloyd's for $9.8 million. They claim there is no evidence weed caused 'Ye to lose his shit and state that Lloyd's is looking for "any ostensible excuse no matter how fanciful" to deny payment on the policy.

Here's the famous rant that spelled the end of the tour:

Do you think weed had anything to do with it?
