Per TMZ, the 45-year-old and his Yeezy brand have been sued for $275,000 for breach of contract by Dora Szilagyi.

In the suit filed on Friday, Szilagyi says that West convinced her to quit her position at Adidas to work for him full-time as Director of Product Innovation at Yeezy in June 2021.

She claims that she was promised a severance payment of $275,000 if she was let go without cause after September 2021.

Szilagyi was then fired in December 2021 but never received the promised payment.

In the lawsuit, she says that she doesn't believe Ye ever planned on providing the severance payment, having only used it to convince her to leave Adidas.

Along with the latest suit, West continues to face extensive legal issues elsewhere.

In February, West's legal team severed ties with him after his repeated antisemitic comments and generally erratic actions. Even after finding new lawyers willing to take him on later that month, he's facing further legal issues.

In March, his lawyers failed to show up at court for a copyright lawsuit Ye filed against an Australian restaurant.

Shortly after that, he faced another legal loss after he failed to respond to a copyright lawsuit against him.
