A production company is suing Kanye West for over $7 million in unpaid royalties.
Phantom Labs, who collaborated with the hitmaker on numerous significant projects between June 2021 and March 2022, allegedly filed a lawsuit against Ye.
According to the publication, the production team had worked on four weeks of his Sunday Service, a listening party for Donda 2, the Free Larry Hoover concert with Drake in Los Angeles, and even his 2022 Coachella engagement, which was postponed.
The rapper from All Of The Lights and his team were okay with making payments at initially, according to Phantom Labs attorney Howard King, but then they started to accumulate because the production firm believes they were due more than $6 million by February.
The legal documents also say that Ye had allegedly promised to settle his debt with Phantom Labs using the money he was supposed to make from his headlining gig at 2022 Coachella which was reportedly $9million.
However, the artist pulled out just weeks before the gig and Phantom Labs claimed that it soon became clear that he wasn’t going to pay.
The production company are suing Ye for breach of contract in addition to other things as they want him to pay $7.1million that they claim they are owed plus more on-top.
This comes just days after it was reported that Ye is being sued by fashion archivist David Casavant for not returning 13 of the 49 pieces of clothing he rented to him back in March 2020.
The 31-year-old stylist, collector, and consultant is coming for the 45-year-old rapper-designer for $221K in unpaid rental fees and $195K to replace the missing 13 ‘rare, esteemed pieces,’ according to TMZ .
Among the 49 items listed in David’s invoice was a heavily-distressed vintage blue denim jacket designed by Helmut Lang.
Ye famously wore a vintage Helmut Lang jean jacket in the b&w music video for Rihanna’s 2015 song FourFiveSeconds, which was directed by Inez & Vinoodh.
Casavant began working with him in 2014 and he features West and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian 12 times on The David Casavant Archive’s portofolio.
