Kanye West and Lloyd’s of London have resolved the performer’s $10 million lawsuit over canceled dates on his “Saint Pablo” tour, according to court papers obtained Thursday.
A joint stipulation to dismiss the case was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles federal court. No further details were immediately available.
West’s touring company — Very Good Touring — filed suit last August after Lloyd’s refused to pay out claims stemming from the cancellation of nearly two dozen concert dates in winter 2016, following West’s hospitalization for apparent emotional issues.
Lawyers for West alleged that the insurance giant was intentionally stalling.
“The stalling is emblematic of a broader modus operandi of the insurers of never-ending post-claim underwriting where the insurers hunt for some contrived excuse not to pay,” the suit alleged.
Lloyd’s denied the insurance claim in a countersuit, claiming that the cause for the cancellation was not beyond West’s control.
West originally planned to perform 38 dates on the “Saint Pablo” trek and took out insurance in case cancellations were needed, according to his suit.
