The hits keep just coming for Kanye and Yeezy. According to Business Insider, freelancer Katelyn Mooney has sued Yeezy for failing to pay approximately $95,000 in overdue creative directing invoices for a recent photoshoot.
Assuming that all of Ms. Mooney’s allegations are provably true, she should legally be entitled to $190,000 in total damages, or double the original amount of her unpaid invoices. She should also be entitled to her attorney’s fees, which is not common in most New York lawsuits. However, attorney’s fees typically are recoverable in Freelance Isn’t Free Act (“FIFA”) claims.
