According to the rapper’s former business manager, Kanye West has been missing “for weeks.” The rap mogul’s whereabouts has been called into question following a tweet by Daily Loud reading: “Kanye West has reportedly been missing and unable to find [sic] for weeks according to his ex-business manager.’”
The rumours come alongside a New York Post report concerning West’s former business manager, Thomas St. John, who is currently attempting to serve the rapper with a $4.5 million lawsuit for unpaid fees. “As a general matter, we have had difficulty confirming the best current address of Kanye West,” St. John’s court filing reads.
It continues: “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.”
Reports suggest that St John has attempted to serve West at two of the rapper’s residences, Hidden Hills in Malibu and Calabasas in California. The last photo taken of West in public was taken on December 18th and shows him taking his children to church.
All of this comes after West recieved backlash for a flurry of antisemitic comments. In December, West appeared alongside white nationalist Nicke Fuentes on Alex Jones’s Infowars broadcast. After Jones argued that West didn’t “deserve to be demonised” for his recent antisemitic comments, Kanye argued that even Hitler, the German dictator who oversaw the Holocaust, had good traits. According to the rapper, there were “good things about Hitler also.”
Noting that he “loves everyone”, West explained: “I am done with the classifications. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table – especially Hitler.” He had previously argued that “we need to stop dissing the Nazis all the time.”
