Kanye West is been sued by Japanese fabric company Toki Sen-I Co. for over $600,000. According to a report The Blast published Thursday (Jan. 24), the fabric supplier, which goes by the name of Toki Sen-I Co, his company Yeezy Apparel, LLC, for stiffing them with a whole bunch of fabric. They claim that Kanye placed a large order for fleece in order to use them to make his popular Yeezy sneakers in June 2018. The company usually asks for a down payment before they begin production, but since they have had a pleasurable business relationship with the rapper-producer since 2015, they thought nothing of it.

The lawsuit documents show that both parties made an agreement in June 2018 for $624,000 worth of fleece fabric. That equates to roughly 53,500 yards of materials. The fabric would be used to produce various products and that was unclear whether it was going to be used to craft the popular Adidas Yeezy footwear or West’s Yeezyclothing line. After Toki Sen-I Co. produced the goods, Yeezy Apparel reportedly sent an e-mail stating that they had backed out of the deal. The fabric company said that its relationship with Ye began back in 2015, and all orders up to this point had been paid without issue.
Toki Sen-I Co. is seeking $624,000 along with storage fees from Mr.West. No further details regarding the lawsuit are currently avaialble at this time. West has yet to make any official statement on the matter, but knowing the 41-year old superstar, a tweet storm could already be brewing as we speak.
