A lawsuit filed in LA Superior Court yesterday alleges Kanye West failed to pay for his $1,295 a month Mercedes G500 he signed a personal guarantee for back in 2002. Although the lease expired this past January, DaimlerChrysler Financial Services has seen no payments and no returned car, so they're looking for $53K in back lease payments, late charges and "punitive damages." This reminds us — did we pay up our late charges yet on our old lease? Maybe we should check on that — cause we hear DaimlerChrysler Financial Services doesn't care about late people.
