In case you were wondering how Kanye West was mentally handling the very public divorce of his estranged wife while navigating a new relationship and dealing with pending litigation – everything is just fine! The self-proclaimed prophecy was forced to sit for a digital deposition last week in regards to an ongoing legal battle with MyChannel, a video and e-commerce company going after Ye for Trade Secret Theft.
According to legal documents describing the insanity, Kanye went wild during the deposition before putting on a full facemask and declaring that nobody had the right to see his face.
According to AllHipHop.com, who broke the story, Kanye West’s doomed deposition lasted all of 10 minutes, and was highlighted by the rapper calling MyChannel’s white attorney “boy,” at least “12 times during the heated deposition.”
Clearly trying to obstruct the deposition, and bragging about his efforts to do so, Kanye also exclaimed that he was 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.”
The meeting culminated about 5 minutes in when Kanye West allegedly put on a “full-face hood and head covering adorned with Jesus Christ’s image which obscured his face and muffled his voice.”
“He refused to take it off despite polite request,” the legal documents state. Kanye, who has a major God complex, added that the legal team did not have the “right to see his face,” before eventually turning off the Zoom camera and ending the disastrous deposition.
To make matters worse, Kanye’s legal team did nothing to curb his behavior … which may not be great for Ye in the long run.
“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, one of MyChannel’s attorney noted about the spectacle.
The deposition had been videotaped, so it is possible we will get to see the madness in all its glory. Regardless of his efforts, MyChannel is still seeking sanctions against Ye in the amount of $63,000 … as well as rescheduling for another deposition.
