Kanye West and his label YEEZY are being sued for failing to pay a fabric vendor, People reports. Japanese fabric company Toki Sen-I Co. claims the label has failed to pay more than $600,000 in outstanding debts.
According to the report, the lawsuit was filed against Yeezy Apparel, LLC on Thursday and states that West attempted to trick Toki Sen-I Co. out of money by “creating a fake company.” The total sum Toki Sen-I Co. claims is owed amounts to $624,051.
The fabric company, which says it started working with West in 2015, says the problems started when West placed a huge order for fleece fabrics in June 2018 and then refused to meet the downpayment.
Toki Sen-I Co. claims that Yeezy Apparel, LLC is a “sham” company operating without capital assets or member interest run by West to avoid personal liability. Updates to follow.
