Kanye West’s company is suing Lloyds of London for $10 million for stalling on paying claims from the canceled Saint Pablo tour.  Lloyds has not yet said whether or not they would ever make a payout on the tour that was canceled because of medical reasons.  Which landed West in the UCLA psychiatric center after suffering a mental breakdown. 

The rapper suddenly ended two shows during the tour after unusual rants about friends and making incoherent statements on stage.  According to reports Lloyds of London has declined to comment on the situation, but experts speculate they are looking for a reason not to make the pay out, and are prematurely citing West’s marijuana use.
