Kanye West Is On The Run For An Insane Reason
Kanye West is allegedly moving around without a permanent residence to avoid being served lawsuit documents.
According to TMZ, Kanye West is allegedly on the run and hiding from the public eye in an effort to evade his ex-business manager, Thomas St. John. St. John is attempting to serve Kanye a lawsuit to the tune of $4.5 million but has been unable to track the hip-hop and fashion mogul down to give him the legal docs. The lawsuit is being filed over unpaid management fees.
TMZ also reported that Thomas St. John can’t move forward with the lawsuit until these documents are served and that Kanye West has been on the move without a home base for months. St. John went on to allege that the relationship between him and Ye soured after Kanye aggressively screamed at him and ended their professional relationship. Although Kanye has been spotted a couple of times, it’s likely difficult to deliver anything to him if he doesn’t have an official address.
Kanye West has had a fairly tumultuous and controversial year. In addition to his ongoing split with his ex Kim Kardashian, Kanye has also been “canceled” due to various antisemitic remarks. Most egregiously, West appeared on the Alex Jones-hosted show Infowars and flat out stated “I like Hitler,” during his interview.
Kanye West has also been criticized for the company he keeps. For one, Alex Jones was recently hit with a judgment to pay out over $1 billion to the families of Sandy Hook victims after being charged with defamation and spreading conspiracy theories that the shooting was a hoax. Appearing on Jones’ show earned West continued criticism, and his remarks on the show only made things much worse.
Kanye West has also been seen traveling with Nick Fuentes, a former YouTuber whose channel was permanently suspended for violating the video platform’s hate speech policies. Fuentes is known for being a white supremacist and a Holocaust denier. In addition to Kanye’s own antisemitic remarks, being seen with someone like Fuentes is undoubtedly not a good move for Kanye’s image.
Kanye West is best known for his music career, releasing some of the most revered hip-hop albums of all time such as The College Dropout, Graduation, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Yeezus. Kanye began his career as a producer and became known for his soul samples, specifically pioneering the sped-up soul sample known as ‘chipmunk soul.’ He would go on to release his own albums as a rapper and often as a producer, earning accolades, Grammys, and critical acclaim along the way.
Outside of his music career, Kanye West is known for his fashion work with Nike and Adidas, and for creating his own Yeezy fashion line. Over recent years, Kanye’s public image has gradually declined as he has burned various bridges. West has also been vocal about his own mental health diagnoses, specifically bipolar disorder.
Whether Kanye West is avoiding his ex-manager or not, it seems like he’ll get served this lawsuit eventually. It remains to be seen if the lawsuit goes in West’s favor or in favor of St. John. Stay tuned for the latest on West’s controversies.
