Kanye West Settles Lawsuit Over Canceled Saint Pablo Tour
Kanye West has settled a lawsuit over the 2016 cancelation of his Saint Pablo Tour, TMZ is reporting. West’s touring company Very Good Touring previously sued the insurance company Lloyd’s of London for $10 million for refusing to make payouts on a policy when the tour was canceled.
