The Gap has filed a $2 million lawsuit against Kanye West over their failed attempts at a collaboration.
According to reports, Gap is being sued by Art City Center, the LA storefront leased for its Yeezy collab. However, the company believes Kanye should be responsible for any “damages.”
When Gap promoted the Yeezy collaboration in 2021 and 2022, Art City Center claims the facility underwent numerous prohibited changes.
Now, the company is suing Gap for the expense of repairing the property. Therefore, Gap is essentially trying to blame Kanye for the situation.
According to the lawsuit, the modifications included removing ceiling lights, constructing a wall, knocking down three bathrooms, and adding an outside ramp to the east side parking lot.
The suit claims, “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.”
Gap is requesting $2 million in compensatory damages for itself and that West be held accountable for any losses owed to Art City.
