Kanye West is being sued for failing to return rented clothing.

The 45-year-old rapper-and-designer has been accused of failing to return 13 "rare esteemed pieces" to David Casavant after he loaned 49 garments from the fashion archivist in March 2020.

The David Cassavant Archive claimed Kanye returned the other 36 garments with no issue, but by the end of October 2020, he stopped paying the weekly fees on the remaining 13 pieces.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the 31-year-old stylist is seeking $221,000 in unpaid rental fees and an additional $195,000 to replace the missing items from the 'Stronger' hitmaker.

Among the 49 items listed in David's invoice to Kanye - who he has worked with since 2014 - was a distressed vintage blue denim jacket by Helmut Lang, a $5,000 Gucci bomber jacket, and a Dolce and Gabbana black mesh tank top.

The 'Jesus Walks' hitmaker has been keeping a low profile in recent months but two weeks ago, he attended the 2022 BET Awards to present Sean 'Diddy' Combs' with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

He began his speech: “How do we crown our kings?

“How do we appreciate our kings? To think how far we could just make it off of inspiration, to hear the way somebody chopped a sample...”

Kanye - who legally changed his name to Ye - continued: “This is my favourite artist.

You see what I’m saying? Favourite artist—everything—specifically, production, drip. You know, back then, it was so many rules to hip-hop. And he broke all of them and broke down all the doors and understood contracts the way a lot of us still don’t, understood money the way a lot of us still don’t.”

The 45-year-old rap legend - who has North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three, with ex-wife Kim Kardashian - then quipped that the 'I'll Be Missing You' hitmaker, also known as Puff Daddy, is the reason why he chose to marry the 41-year-old reality star in 2014.

Ye went on: “He inspires so many of my choices, my life choices, my wife choices.

“And here we are. Thanks for that, Puff.”
