Kanye West’s Yeezy brand has been hit with a lawsuit in the state of California. The lawsuit alleges that the Yeezy brand has failed to “ship items within within thirty days and failing to provide adequate delay notices” to consumers, among other accusations, according to Complex.
The suit claims that the Yeezy brand violated California state business code sections that stipulate products purchased online must be shipped to customers within 30 days. If the items cannot be shipped for whatever reason, within that time period, then the merchant has to either provide a refund, sent out a notice of delay, or find another solution.
This new lawsuit also alleges that Yeezy “made untrue or misleading statement regarding its ability to ship products within a certain timeframe, particularly where customers paid an additional charge for expedited shipping.”
The lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, October 22, via the State of California via L.A. County District Attorney George Gascón. District Attorneys from Alameda, Napa, and Sonoma counties are also listed in the suit.
The California District Attorneys are requesting that Yeezy be fined $2,500 for each violation, and pay restitution on behalf of affected consumers.
Kanye and Yeezy reps have yet to respond to the suit.
Kanye, who recently changed his name to Ye, is currently seeing success with his tenth studio album, Donda, which dropped in late August. The album debuted atop the Billboard 200, and has since racked up more than 1 billion streams on Spotify alone. It was also recently revealed that Kanye’s Mascotte Holdings filed trademarks for several electronic products like tablets, smartwatches, audio speakers, and more. Mascotte Holdings has also filed a trademark application for a line of home goods, indicating that Ye is keeping a full plate of work.
