Kanye West’s $4.5M Lawsuit From Former Business Associate Alleging Breach Of Contract Has Been Dropped

Kanye West has started the year positively, as his legal battle with his former business manager has ended. According to legal documents obtained by Radar Online on January 3, Thomas St. John has dropped his lawsuit against Kanye, which accused the rapper of breaching their contract. St. John claimed that Kanye failed to pay him the promised $300,000 monthly to manage his business and finances. However, the agreement was terminated after only three months. In response, Kanye filed a countersuit claiming that he signed the contract under duress and sought to recover $900,000 for the three payments he had made.

According to the paperwork, by 2022, Kanye West’s artistic and professional career had taken a turn for the worse due to his various antics and public statements. The documents stated that West required the guidance of a respected and sophisticated business manager who could help him get back on track and steer his career in the right direction. This information proved that the contract was unenforceable and was pursued through “constructive fraud.”

Kanye’s fans will have to wait longer for his collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign, Vultures, as its release has been delayed. The album was initially scheduled to drop on December 31, but this is now the third time the release date has been pushed back. According to a representative for Kanye, there is no fixed release date for the album. Moreover, Malik Yusef, a longtime collaborator of Kanye, posted a photo on Instagram of Ty in the studio and claimed in the comments section that the singer was re-recording all of his parts for the album.
