Kanye West's tour insurer says marijuana caused breakdown

Kanye West's tour insurer Lloyd’s of London claims marijuana may have caused his mental breakdown late last year. 

The rapper is suing the insurance company, claiming they are refusing to pay him after he was forced to cancel shows in November last year.

According to legal documents Lloyd's suggest marijuana may have led to Kanye's mental health issues in a bid to invalidate the performer's insurance claim, according to The Sun.

The 40-year-old is asking for $10 million in damages, claiming the company has yet to pay him out for his cancelled shows. 

Furthermore, he claims they have shown no signs they intend to pay him, according to The Reporter.

The Gold Digger rapper first filed a loss claim with the company just days after famously suffering a mental breakdown in November, which saw him cancelling a number of his shows.

Kanye checked into a psychiatric hospital as a result of the breakdown, but more than eight months later, he's claiming both he and his company, Very Good Touring, Inc., still haven't been paid.

Almost immediately after being hospitalized, Kanye's physician provided the insurance company with sworn testimony he was unfit to take to the stage.

According to the complaint, the insurance company then sought to amend the terms of their coverage in an effort to avoid paying him out.
