Kanye West reported ‘missing’ as he’s chased over unpaid debts

Kanye West has reportedly gone missing as a dispute over unpaid management fees threatens to boil over.

The American rapper is being sued for $4.5 million (£3.7 million) by ex-business manager, Thomas St. John, over alleged unpaid fees.

However, St John has been unable to track down Kanye or find a proper address to deliver his suit – and so he has reportedly told an American court he believes the star is missing.

Last month it was revealed the star could be in financial trouble after anti-Semitic comments cost him up to $1 billion in deals.

Former US president Donald Trump said West – who goes by the name Ye – is “a seriously troubled man” who needs help as he’s “been decimated in his business and virtually everything else” after meeting with him at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

According to The Sun, rumours that Kanye was missing have been circulating after a tweet sent by Daily Loud stated: ” Kanye West has reportedly been missing and unable to find for weeks according to his ex-business manager.”

They report: “In a December 19th court filin… Thomas is seeking an extension of time to serve Ye and the other defendant, Yeezy LLC, the court docs.

“He and his attorneys are asking to extend the time until the end of March due to multiple failed attempts of contacting Ye.

“As of right now, there is a scheduled case management conference set for April 2023.”

While details of the filing were shared, reportedly reading: “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 report goes on to suggest St John’s legal team attended three different Los Angeles addresses in an attempt to find Kanye and his team, but to no avail.

Kanye was photographed attending a church in Los Angeles on December 14th, while hiding beneath a mask.

Some fans online also claim to have seen the star wearing a green jacket and a cap at a church on Tuesday.

Ex-wife Kim Kardashian broke down in tears this week in footage that showed her discussing how they co-parent their four children.

Together they have daughters North, nine, and Chicago, four, and sons Saint, seven, and Psalm, three.

Kim told the Angie Martinez IRL podcast: “It’s hard, co-parenting, it’s really f***ing hard.
