In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the retailer says West (45) owes them for a storefront property they rented in downtown LA that was supposed to be used for his Yeezy clothing line.

The Heartless rapper allegedly made unauthorized alterations to the property, amounting to around $2 million.

The Gap is now being sued by Art City Center, which owns the property, but as part of their contract with West, he is considered liable as well.

The company's suit is seeking for West to pay to repair the property and any extra damage expenses ordered by the suit from Art City Center.

Ye pulled the plug on his collaboration with Gap in September, accusing the company of not holding up their end of the deal, but Gap told a different story.

Gap said the company's vision is "not aligned" with Kanye West

Mark Breitbard, the company's president, said in a statement that "how" the company worked was "not aligned" with the rapper, which led to the decision to "wind down the partnership."

A few months after they parted ways, West's behavior grew increasingly erratic. He made several public antisemitic remarks that tanked his music career and various business deals.

As the fallout from West's hate speech hit him financially, so much so that he recently lost his status as a billionaire, the Gap suit may present another issue for his wallet.
