Part of Kanye’s filing goes: “Nor have they provided anything approaching a coherent explanation about why they have not paid, or any indication if they will ever pay or even make a coverage decision, implying that Kanye’s use of marijuana may provide them with a basis to deny the claim and retain the hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums.”

Along with that, Kanye says he has remained under full time care and supervision of the doctor at the hospital, who swore in a testimony that Yeezy could not tour because of a “debilitating medical condition.”
