Where is Ye? That is the question of his former business manager, Thomas St. John, who is attempting to serve the disgraced anti-semetic former hip-hop icon a $4.5 million dollar lawsuit. Thomas St. John has asked the court for an extension of time to locate Kanye West to serve him with papers. The lawsuit brings forth various allegations, including, without limitation, that Kanye West failed to pay Thomas St. John for 18 months for his roll as Kanye West’s senior financial advisor.
“When confronted by the 18-month commitment that had just been made, Mr. West stated words to the effect of ‘The 18-month term was bullshit’ and ‘You’re insane for even thinking I would stick to it,’”– Official Court Record
Court records show there is a case management conference scheduled for April, 2023.
“We were advised about a new law firm for defendants, but not a specific point of contact. We subsequently learned of information in the news that the law firm identified as new counsel was not affiliated with the defendants.
Accordingly, we have not been able to serve defendants through their counsel. As a general matter, we have had difficulty confirming the best current address of Kanye West. For Mr. West, despite our diligent efforts, we were unable to ascertain his current residential address, and therefore, have not yet made attempts to serve him personally. Instead, we have attempted to service him by mail at multiple possible addresses.”– Official Court Record
