Ye’s former business manager has apparently been looking for him so that the rapper can be served with a $4.5 million contract lawsuit, but has been unsuccessful in doing so.
This year, Thomas St. John, the rapper once known as Kanye West‘s business manager, sued him for $4.5 million for allegedly unpaid payments. The Sun, however, now reports that St. John is asking for a delay in order to serve Ye since he has been unable to find him.
According to a court document, “we have attempted to service him by mail” at “three separate addresses,” noting that “we have had problems confirming the best current address of Kanye West.” One address received a package that was purportedly sent back to the sender.
Because they “could not identify his current residential address,” St. John’s team has “not yet attempted to serve him personally,” according to the petition, Though he has been photographed in Los Angeles this month, TMZ claims that Ye has been leading a “nomadic life for months, moving here and there and not really having a permanent base.”
St. John filed the case against Ye when the rapper was under heavy criticism for his string of antisemitic remarks. In the lawsuit, St. John also claimed that Ye screamed at him and got “heated and confrontational” during a meeting in January 2022.
According to the filing, St. John has been unable to get in touch with Kanye West‘s attorneys because it appears that he does not currently have representation, according to The Sun. According to reports from October, Ye was collaborating with Camille Vasquez, the attorney who defended Johnny Depp in his legal dispute with Amber Heard. Days later, Ye reportedly refused to repudiate his antisemitic comments, and their professional partnership came to an end.
