Kanye West was sued by the Japanese fabric supplier Toki Sen-I Co. Apparently Kanye Wests’ brand Yeezy has been working with Toki Sen-I Co since 2015. Things have been great throughout the years until Kanye placed a large order of fabrics with the company. Toki Sen decided to begin production on the fabrics but required a downpayment. Since the two have been working closely since 2015 everyone figured they had a great relationship. It wasn’t until Kanye refused to pay the downpayment in which Toki Sen was already in more than half million in debt for. Therefore the company decided to sue West and Yeezy.
Toki Sen decided to take Kanye to court where Kanye’s lawyer stated ”Plaintiff never delivered the allegedly contracted- for product, and Yeezy Apparel allegedly did not pay the full price for that undelivered product. Despite being a basic business dispute between companies, Plaintiff needlessly inflates this case into a 4-count complaint under both tort and contract theories, baselessly including the celebrity member of Yeezy Apparel (Mr. West).”
Kanye argued that it should be dismissed and right before they were expected to go to trial Toki Sen-I Co. said they were dismissing all claims against Kanye West and his Yeezy brand.
