Kanye West reportedly sued by Yeezy fabric supplier
LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - Kanye West is being sued by a Japanese fabric supplier claiming Kanye's company ordered more than $600,000 in the manufacturing of fleece fabric and got "stiffed," according to TMZ.
In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Toki Sen-I Co. claims it made a deal in June 2018 with Yeezy Apparel in which the company would manufacture fleece fabric for Yeezys.
According to TMZ, Toki says it was an "unusually large order" of $624,000.
Toki says it manufactured the fleece, but then received an email from Yeezy Apparel stating they didn't intend to go through with the deal, TMZ reports.
The unused fabric is a total of 53,500 yards at $10.81 a yard, according to the site.
Toki says it tried settling with West and his company, but "to no avail," TMZ reports. The Japanese company also reportedly tried to mitigate damages by selling the fabric to other buyers, but it was too specific to the Yeezy Apparel brand that no one wanted it.
Toki is suing for $624,000 plus storage fees, according to the site.
