Rapper, producer, and controversial figure Kanye “Ye” West’s anti-semitic comments and acrimonious interviews have made news for weeks. He is back in the spotlight for avoiding exposure for the first time in a while.
While it may seem like the rapper’s constant media presence is exhausting, his absence is upsetting netizens. According to Thomas St. John’s latest report, Ye’s former employees are concerned about his absenteeism. Despite legal conversations and a lawsuit, West’s ex-manager has been unable to locate his former employer, according to Radaronline. Why is St. John suing West?
Kanye West’s fate?
In court, St. John admits to searching for West for weeks as he seeks to sue the rapper for breaching their contract. The financial advisor claims the production broke their $300,000-per-month agreement after an angry debate with St. John.
The report stated that St. John began working for West as a chief financial officer and senior financial advisor in March. After being impressed with his work, the rapper reportedly became the advisor of Donda’s CFO. The lawsuit claims the chief economic advisor contract was 18 months.
“[St. John] needed a guarantee that [West] wouldn’t abruptly abandon the commercial connection, in addition to the financial costs and risks of committing to [West] as clients. In the litigation, Mr. St. John proposed to settle for an 18-month contract.
After the heated dispute, St. John brought up West’s contract, to which he allegedly replied, “The 18-month term was b—–t.” “You’re insane for even believing I’d stick to it,” the report said. St. John is suing the rapper for $4.5 million, despite Ye’s “disappearance.”
Kanye? Is he missing?
The “Hurricane” rapper hasn’t been publicly seen in two weeks. Ye kept his social media sites moderately active after the uproar weeks before his disappearance. After his old manager unsuccessfully searched for him, the rapper appears to be “ghosting” St. John.
Reddit users observed West at church less than 24 hours earlier. The singer talks at the chapel in a green jacket, baseball cap, and pants. Ye appears to be OK, but he is avoiding his ex-financial advisor and St. John.
