Kanye West and his company, Yeezy Apparell, LLC, known for the Yeezy sneakers, is being sued by a Japanese company for allegedly holding over $600,000. Toki Sen-I Co, was providing fabrics to West and Yeezy Apparel, LLC. for the rapper’s line of shoes. They filed the case on January 24 and claimed that West tried to cheat them out of money by creating a fake company, reports The Blast. The fabric supplier claims to have started working with West back in 2015, but problems arose when they asked for a down payment for an order of fabrics in June 2018. Apparently, West did not make the payment.
As per a report on TMZ, Toki manufactured the fabric as ordered by Yeezy Apparel but later got an email saying that they didn’t want to go through with the deal. The unused fabric measures 53,500 yards at $10.81 a yard, as per reports. Toki Sen-I Co claimed West declared that he won’t pay for the fabrics. The total dues at the time, as per the company, amounted to $624,051.

West reportedly refused to carry on with any of the payment plans that Toki Sen-I had on offer. The company even claimed that Yeezy Apparel is a ‘shell’ and a ‘sham’ and that it does not have any capital assets or member interest. They even claimed that West uses Yeezy Apparel so that he cannot be held personally liable for anything.
