A production company has sued Kanye West for over $7 million in unpaid payments, glamsquad reports.
According to TMZ, Phantom Labs, which worked on multiple massive projects with Ye from June 2021 to March 2022, filed a lawsuit against him.
According to the publication, the production company worked on four weeks of his Sunday Service, a listening event for Donda 2, the Free Larry Hoover concert in LA with Drake, and even his 2022 Coachella performance, which was canceled.
According to Phantom Labs attorney Howard King, the All Of The Lights rapper and his team were fine with making payments at first, but then they began to pile up, with the production company claiming they were owed more than $6 million by February.
According to the legal documents, Ye allegedly promised to settle his debt with Phantom Labs with the $9 million he was supposed to make from his headlining gig at 2022 Coachella.
However, the artist backed out just weeks before the performance, and Phantom Labs claimed that it quickly became clear that he would not pay.
The production company is suing Ye for breach of contract, among other things, and wants him to pay them the $7.1 million they claim they are owed, plus more.
This comes just days after it was revealed that Ye is being sued by fashion archivist David Casavant for failing to return 13 of the 49 garments he rented to him in March 2020.
According to TMZ, the 31-year-old stylist, collector, and consultant is suing the 45-year-old rapper-designer for $221K in unpaid rental fees and $195K to replace the missing 13 ‘rare, esteemed pieces.’
A heavily-distressed vintage blue denim jacket designed by Helmut Lang was among the 49 items listed on David’s invoice.
In the b&w music video for Rihanna’s 2015 song FourFiveSeconds, directed by Inez & Vinoodh, Ye famously wore a vintage Helmut Lang jean jacket.
Casavant began working with him in 2014, and his portfolio includes 12 images of West and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
