The counterclaim, which was filed in a federal court in Los Angeles, on August 29, said that West's company called Very Good Touring Inc., had neglected to cooperate with Lloyd's of London's investigation into the claim of canceled concerts.
The rapper states that he is owed US$10 million for the cancelation of his 2016 Saint Pablo tour.
Part of the insurance group's policies excludes claims for losses caused by alcohol, direct or indirect possession or use of illegal drugs, as well as prescription drugs not used as prescribed.
If it was and they hired him their problem. If it wasn't & they allege it, can he sue? https://t.co/DZsykBeKzV— Larry Ferguson (@MrNashvilleTalk) 31 August 2017
Lloyd's did not include any specific information about Kanye West, in order to protect details of the rapper's private life, however they stated that underwriters had found "substantial irregularities in Mr. West's medical history."
"Underwriters are informed and believe, and thereon these same persons have willfully concealed and or misrepresented relevant facts in an effort to thwart underwriters' investigation," the counterclaim stated.
West's lawyer, Howard King, said in a statement that Lloyd did not want to "honor a legitimate" claim.
In November 2016, Kanye West canceled the remaining dates of his tour after a series of no-shows and erratic behavior.
