As you may remember, last November Kanye West cut his Saint Pablo tour short following a breakdown on stage and subsequent hospitalisation. Now West and his touring company have filed a $10 million lawsuit due to his insurance company Lloyd's of London's refusal to pay out insurance claims from the cancelled tour and hospitalisation expenses.

The complaint, which has been made public, duly notes that an insurance claim was submitted in due time: two days after the tour was cancelled, and one after West's hospitalisation -- but no action has been taken whatsoever from the insurance company's side: they haven't paid him, nor have said if they intend to do so or not.

Following an eight-day hospitalisation and an "independent medical examination" (and from which the doctor concluded the musician was unfit to tour), one would expect a quick agreement for both parties to be reached; however, and as the complaint clearly states, "Lloyd’s companies enjoy collecting bounteous premiums; they don’t enjoy paying claims, no matter how legitimate. Their business model thrives on conducting unending ‘investigations,’ of bona fide coverage requests, stalling interminably, running up their insured’s costs, and avoiding coverage decisions based on flimsy excuses. The artists think they’re buying peace of mind. The insurers know they’re just selling a ticket to the courthouse."
