Kanye West and insurers Lloyd’s of London have “amicably resolved” his $10m (£7.1m) lawsuit over cancelled tour dates.

The Saint Pablo Tour had 21 dates left in November 2016 when West pulled the remaining reveals after falling unwell.

Lloyd’s alleged the musician had used marijuana and refused to pay out, citing a clause within the contract about alcohol and drug use.

West, 40, then sued the insurer, citing his therapy at a psychiatric centre.

A decide in California dismissed the case on Wednesday after being requested to take action by attorneys from either side.

West’s lawyer and Lloyd’s each declined to remark, apart from to say the matter had been resolved “amicably”.

‘Erratic’ behaviour

The preliminary lawsuit, filed in August 2017 by West and his touring firm – Very Good Touring Inc – detailed how West give up due to his “strained, confused and erratic” behaviour throughout earlier levels of the tour.

The cancellation of the final 21 dates got here following West’s abandonment of a present in Sacramento.

He had carried out simply three songs throughout the live performance earlier than embarking on an unscripted rant, criticising Facebook, Jay-Z and Hillary Clinton.

The rapper then spent eight days in a neuropsychiatric centre in Los Angeles, the place it was determined he couldn’t proceed with the tour, the lawsuit stated.

Just a few weeks after West’s lawsuit was filed, Lloyd’s of London filed its personal countersuit towards the corporate, alleging that the star’s causes for the cancellation had been “not beyond [his] control,” and due to this fact denying his insurance coverage declare.

However, attorneys for the corporate denied implying West’s “use of marijuana provided the sole basis to deny the claim” and stated there have been “substantial irregularities” in his medical historical past.
