Kanye West’s Ex-Manager says Ye is Missing
According to information gathered by RadarOnline.com, Kanye West’s former business manager has been unable to track down the disgraced singer, making it difficult to serve him with legal documents.
During a court hearing, West’s manager, Thomas St. John, said he had been looking for West for weeks without success.
St. John filed a lawsuit against West, claiming that West was breaking their contract by not paying the agreed upon monthly fee. According to court papers, West’s manager said that after a “aggressive” meeting, West stopped paying his bills.
St. John claimed that he started working for West in March of that year. According to him, West was so pleased with his job that he made him chief financial officer of one of the musician’s businesses (called Donda).
The business manager claimed he was gathering West’s financial data and planning next steps.
St. John claimed to have informed West of his desire for a two-year contract. “[St. John] needed guarantee that [West] wouldn’t abruptly abandon the commercial relationship, in addition to the financial costs and hazards associated with committing to [West] as clients. But Mr. St. John offered to settle for a contract lasting at least 18 months, as stated in the lawsuit. According to St. John, West signed a contract lasting 18 months.
St. John’s dual role at West as chief financial officer and “most senior financial advisor” led to his hiring. St. John was to be paid a “monthly retainer fee” of $300,000.
