Kanye West’s YEEZY brand is facing another lawsuit once again. Yeezy is facing a lawsuit from Colorado-based company Backbone PLC. Backbone licenses out management tools allowing brands to oversee the lifecycles of their products by providing access to color libraries, inventory, and design specifications.
According to Highsnobiety, Backbone alleges that Yeezy has failed to pay fees of up to $125,200 for the continued use of its software. It claims Yeezy initially paid the $20,000 implementation fee, an inaugural annual fee of $10,000, and the monthly user fees for 12 months totaling $43,200. In September 2019, Backbone claims that Yeezy Apparel continued to maintain access to the software but stopped paying.
Backbone has requested payments over and over again but Yeezy has never responded. Yeezy is now facing a lawsuit and Backbone is looking to receive their payments along with “any other and further relief that the court may deem just and proper.”
Yeezy faced a lawsuit not too long ago from the Japanese fabric supplier Toki Sen-I Co. The lawsuit was dismissed.
