Japanese knitted fabric supplier Toki Sen-I Co. filed the lawsuit against West, 41, and Yeezy Apparel, LLC. this Thursday, January 24. In it, they claimed the star’s business is fake and was simply created as a front for West to keep his millions while excusing himself from the responsibility of paying for supplies.
The company — which began working for West’s line in 2015 — said he put in a large order of fleece fabrics in June 2018 but failed to provide them with a down payment. In the end, he allegedly revealed he would not be paying for the fabrics at all.
Despite Toki Sen-I’s attempt to set up a payment plan with him, West reportedly backed out of the deal entirely, leaving the company with a bulk of unsellable Yeezy fabrics.
Kanye West — whose net worth is a whopping $160 million — has not spoken publicly of his legal scandal, and Radar confirmed the L.A. Superior Court has not officially approved the case.
