Kanye West May Be Getting A Huge Insurance Payout

He may be off the hook for the millions his tour cancellation cost him.

Kanye West is having a tough week, to say the least. Doctors determined that West suffered from "temporary psychosis" due to sleep deprivation and dehydration after West tried to assault a staff member and was hospitalized.

To make matters worse, mere hours before the incident, West abruptly cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour. Ordinarily, that would put him on the hook for millions of dollars, but TMZ reports that Kanye may actually be covered by his insurance.

West's insurance policy covers him in the event that he's unable to perform due to illness — including mental illness. The policy should cover not only the money he would have made from the cancelled performances (something around $30 million), but the money he owes to venues and other vendors as well.

According to TMZ, the only way the insurance company could deny coverage is if Kanye had an undisclosed, preexisting condition, or if his illness was caused by his own "unreasonable or capricious behavior."

Who knows how this will all play out, but in the meantime, #PrayForKanye.
