Lloyd’s of London has filed a countersuit against Kanye West, who initially sued the insurance giant for failing to pay on his canceled Saint Pablo Tour.
In the countersuit against Kanye’s Very Good Touring, Lloyd’s said it didn’t pay up because the mental breakdown that cut Ye’s tour was his own fault, and fueled by prescription drugs and illegal drugs, according to TMZ.
The docs also say Yeezy refused to produce information it needs to determine whether to cover his losses.
Lloyd’s doesn’t state specifically that Kanye was using drugs and/or booze, but claims something he did triggered the policy exclusions that refer to using substances. You’ll recall … in the original lawsuit, Kanye’s touring company claimed Lloyd’s was dragging its feet because it believed his breakdown was triggered by marijuana.
Kanye sued the insurer for $10 mil. In its docs, Lloyd’s says it wants the judge to rule it’s free and clear to NOT pay Kanye a dime.
Kanye’s attorney, Howard King, tells us the countersuit “is the same generic response Lloyd’s files when they don’t want to honor a legitimate claim but can’t find a factual basis to deny the claim.”
