According to court documents obtained by The U.S. Sun, KANYE West‘s former business manager, Thomas St. John, is unable to find the unpredictable star to serve him with the $4.5M contract lawsuit due to rumors that the rapper is “missing.”
“Kanye West has reportedly been missing and unable to find for weeks according to his ex-business manager.”The 45-year-old music mogul has gone viral after a tweet sent by Daily Loud which read:
Given his continuing litigation against Kanye and Yeezy, it is assumed that the “ex-business manager” is Thomas St. John.
Thomas is requesting an extension of time to serve court documents on Ye and the other defendant, Yeezy LLC, in a court file from December 19th that The U.S. Sun has seen exclusively.
Due to many attempts to contact Ye failing, he and his counsel are requesting an extension until the end of March.
Currently, a case management conference is slated to take place in April 2023.
Due to the misconception that Kanye does not have legal representation, his former business manager is also having problems alerting Ye’s attorneys.
The court filing stated: “We were advised about a new law firm for defendants, but not a specific point of contact. We subsequently learned of information in the news that the law firm identified as new counsel was not affiliated with the defendants.
“Accordingly, we have not been able to serve defendants through their counsel. As a general matter, we have had difficulty confirming the best current address of Kanye West.”
“For Mr. West, despite our diligent efforts, we were unable to ascertain his current residential address, and therefore, have not yet made attempts to serve him personally. Instead, we have attempted to service him by mail at multiple possible addresses.”The filing continued:
He tried to serve Kanye at “three separate places” in California, namely his residences in Hidden Hills, Malibu, and Calabasas, according to the court documents.
The parcel sent to one address was also returned.
“We will continue to make diligent and reasonable attempts to serve defendants,” even going as far as hiring “appropriate agencies” to help them locate him.Thomas and his team added:
Failed servicing efforts occur two months after the Los Angeles complaint was submitted.
According to court documents, Thomas filed the action because he claimed he wasn’t compensated for the 18-month contractual term while serving as Ye’s senior financial advisor and chief financial officer.
His monthly salary was to be $300K, but he only worked for three of those months, for which he reportedly did not get paid, according to court documents.
The Praise God singer allegedly became “heated and aggressive” and “screamed” at Mr. St. John during a meeting in January 2022, as described in the complaint. The singer allegedly said he didn’t want to work with Mr. St. John any longer. Thomas mentioned this.
