Kanye West is reportedly facing a lawsuit of more than half a million
It was recently announced Kanye West is being sued because of a deal that reportedly went bad regarding his Yeezy shoe brand. Kanye was sued by a company that claims his company put in an order for more than $600,000 to make fleece fabric for Yeezys, but they never got their money, reports TMZ.
In the lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, Toki Sen-I Co. says it made a deal last year with Kanye and Yeezy Apparel where Toki Sen-I would manufacture fleece fabric for the Yeezy shoes.
