Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for Kanye West, it was announced today that the rapper has been sued for an eyewatering $20 million...
It's been a turbulent year for the rapper.
via: GettyEver since he announced that he was running for president last month, Kanye's behavior has become incredibly worrisome... And now, things could be set to get even worse.
The infamous musician has today been sued for a lot of money...
via: GettyAnd the reasons behind the legal move have left many people completely and utterly shocked.
Now, we all remember what happened on July 4th.Taking to Twitter, Kanye announced that he would be running for president.
In the last couple of years, Kanye has been dabbling in and out of the world of American politics.Back in 2018, Kanye, who is an avid Trump supporter, sat down with the president in the Oval Office where he proclaimed his support and declared Trump a “hero" in a bizarre, rambling televised monologue that spawned myriad parodies.
But, last month, he took things to the next level.

But, regardless of the haters, the rapper has been deadset on his "2020 vision"...
via: GettyAnd, just a few weeks later, he hosted his first-ever campaign rally.
However, his campaign proved to be an extremely chaotic and alarming experience.
via: TwitterKanye, who was clad in a bullet-proof vest with the numbers "2020" shaved into his head, threw his rally in Charleston, South Carolina, where he seemed to whip up various policy decisions right there on the spot.
And amongst many other problematic things, he experienced what appeared to be a total break down...And, through tears, ranted and raved about personal issues he and his wife, Kim Kardashian, had experienced.
Kanye ranted about the fact that he had very nearly aborted his unborn daughter:
via: Twitter"Then she said, 'I'm pregnant.' I said, 'Yes!' Then I said, 'No.' I gotta tell you what was in my mind. She was crying. She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby's gone."
He acknowledged that Kim may file for divorce following his revelation...
via: TwitterBut he didn't seem to care. "So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn't want to. She stood up, and she protected that child."
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying...
via: TwitterThe man was clearly in a lot of pain which arose so much concern about him running for president.
However, he didn't stop there.
Kim and Kanye's marriage has, quite understandably, been put under a lot of strain since his outburst...
via: GettyBut they have reportedly reunited, and are working on getting their relationship and their lives back on track.
But this hasn't signaled an end to his issues.
via: GettyDespite withdrawing from the public eye and keeping a low profile in the world of politics, it has emerged that Kanye could now be in trouble for a different problem altogether.
Who remembers his infamous Sunday Service?
via: GettyThe popular concert series, which now seems like a distant memory to most of us, was launched last year and saw the rapper preach about his religion while putting on a musical show simultaneously.
Kanye's Sunday Service has become somewhat of a phenomenon...
However, the phenomenon has landed Kanye in seriously hot water.It was revealed today that the rapper has been sued for $20 million by a company that claims he ripped off their technology to launch the concerts.
MyChannel, Inc - a black-owned business specializing in video and e-commerce technology - is seeking the payment for damages.
via: GettyAccording to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the rapper verbally agreed to partner with them and invest millions into their company in return for building technology for his Sunday Service.
MyChannel, Inc also claims that Kanye promised to make a $10 million investment in the company...
via: GettyWhich he never did.
The company continued to explain that, after working tirelessly on the project and even moving into Yeezy headquarters...
via: GettyKanye "inexplicably" left them high and dry and ripped off their technology to use anyways.
The lawsuit claims:

It continued by stating that the company's owners believe Kanye had no intention of ever following through on his promises...
via: GettyAnd instead cut ties with them, all while taking their technology with him. "[Kanye] inexplicably reneged on his promises seemingly on a whim and walked away from the successful partnership while misappropriating MYC's proprietary and trade secrets, netting Kanye hundreds of millions of dollars off the back of MYC."
Kanye is yet to publicly address the lawsuit.
