According to reports, the brand has claimed that the Ye “made unapproved changes to a Los Angeles rental property the landlord is trying to collect on.” Based on court documents, the company filed a claim against the rapper and his YEEZY clothing line last month. ⁠

The claims state that Art City Center owns the building leased to Gap, and in turn, it sued the clothing giant last year for “damages” to the property. Art City Center specifically named architectural alterations, and now Gap is stating they are not responsible, instead pushing the claim to Ye.⁠

In the lawsuit, the American label claimed that “by making and not repairing or restoring the foregoing alterations of the premises that [West] made without Gap’s participation or approval, [West] breached the strategic agreement and directly and proximately caused Gap to incur expenses to repair and restore the premises.”⁠

As of now, Ye has not yet responded to the latest lawsuit.⁠
