Following Kanye West's $10 million lawsuit against several insurers of his Saint Pablo tour, syndicates of insurance company Lloyd's of London are hitting back with a countersuit claiming they're not liable.
Kanye West performs during the Kanye West: The Saint Pablo Tour at Philips Arena on Monday, September 12, 2016, in Atlanta.
The court documents said in order to protect West "from public disclosure of details of his private life", Lloyd's would not include specific information it had obtained in relation to the claim.
In Kanye's original lawsuit, he claims Lloyd's was dragging its feet on a claim he filed almost a year ago. implying that his use of marijuana was a "basis to deny the claim".

Total SA's 225,500-bpd Port Arthur, Texas, refinery was shut by an early-Wednesday power outage, Gulf Coast market sources said. The California average was $3, although unleaded gas could still be found Tuesday in Bakersfield in the $2.55 per gallon range.
And, according to The Hollywood Reporter, when Lloyd's of London did their research into Kanye West and his claims, they discovered that there were "inconsistencies" in what he was claiming was the issue that forced him to cancel the tour, and what the real issues were that forced him to cancel the tour.
They say they can't say any more because of a non-disclosure agreement but point to clauses in the policy that state use of illegal drugs, prescription drugs not as prescribed and alcohol would make any claim invalid.
West's lawyer, Howard E. King, said in a statement on Wednesday that Lloyd's did not "want to honor a legitimate claim but can't find a factual basis to deny a claim".
West had cancelled the performances after a string of odd behavior and following his wife Kim Kardashian's harrowing robbery at gunpoint in Paris.
West later sued Lloyd's of London for $10 million for failing to pay up after the cancellation of his tour, accusing the insurance company of breach of contract and breach of good faith and fair dealing.
