On the heels of a disastrous few months, Kanye West appears to have dropped out of public life.
Although some reports have suggested that no one knows where the rapper is and that he has gone missing, sources have told SEM that his absence is a calculated move.
West’s recent anti-semitic tirades, which reached crescendo after crescendo, have cost him millions of dollars in endorsements and business partnerships. His hooded Dec 1 appearance on Alex Jones’ program, which found him spouting praise for Hitler and doubling down on his disturbing anti-semitic positions, seemed to be the final knock on the door of his undoing. Prior to that, he was escorted out of the Skechers corporate offices, banned from Twitter and appeared at a controversial dinner with Donald Trump and white supremacist Nick Fuentes.
He was reportedly last spotted at church in Los Angeles on December 14.
Since then, reports have started to circulate that West has gone missing.
However, that unconfirmed rumor appears to have been generated by his former business manager Thomas St. John, who is suing West for 4.5 million over unpaid fees. St. John has tried several times to serve West with court documents at his three California homes, but both mailing and delivering the documents have failed.
“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,” St. John’s official filing stated. It went on: “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 lawsuit asserts West has a current unpaid balance of $900,000 and reportedly $3.6 million will be owed by November 2023, on the expiration of the 18-month contract.
