Kanye West Reportedly Lashed Out During Court-Ordered Deposition, Put On A Jesus Head Covering & Called Himself ‘The Richest Black Man In America’
Kanye West reportedly wasn’t on his best behavior during a recent deposition for a lawsuit he’s facing. According to reports, Kanye West, 44, is in an ongoing $20 million legal battle with a black-owned company called MyChannel.The company is accusing Kanye West of stealing its technology to sell his Sunday Service merchandise. During his virtual court-ordered deposition earlier this week Kanye West seemingly threw a tantrum and because of his actions, MyChannel’s lawyers have filed an emergency motion to have the ‘Bound 2’ rapper appear in court in person.
According to court filings obtained by AllHipHop, Kanye called one of MyChannel’s lawyers (who is a white man) “boy” at least 12 times during the heated 10-minute deposition. In addition to that, Kanye reportedly wouldn’t look at MyChannel’s legal team or put his phone down. Kanye went on to refer to his own “mental genius-ness”, refused to answer any questions, and asked one of the company’s attorneys if he was
The Yeezy brand owner didn’t stop his alleged antics there and reportedly informed MyChannel’s lawyer that he was lucky to be deposing the
“richest Black man in America and a Black Trump supporter and that he couldn’t be bothered with the deposition because he had lives (and diets) to change.”
Before a frustrated Kanye terminated the meeting and walked off, court documents claim he put on a
“full-face hood and head covering adorned with Jesus Christ’s image which obscured his face and muffled his voice.”
He then refused to remove the facial covering when asked by MyChannel’s legal team. Kanye also allegedly bragged about how good he was doing interrupting the deposition. His lawyers refused to do anything about his alleged behavior.
One of MyChannel’s lawyers stated,
“West’s bad faith efforts to sabotage the deposition will be viewed by the Court as one of the most outrageous and inappropriate deposition performances it has observed as well”
MyChannel is reportedly now also seeking to sanction Kanye West for $63,000 because of his court behavior.
