According to court documents filed on Monday, December 19, a man believed to be St. John has repeatedly tried to hand off the legal papers to the "Gold Digger" rapper, as well as Yeezy LLC, for quite some time. He is now requesting the court approve an extension in the case that he is unable to give Ye the documents by the end of March.
"We have not been able to serve defendants through their counsel. As a general matter, we have had difficulty confirming the best current address of Kanye West...the address for the current agent for service of process for Yeezy, LLC (“Yeezy”) on the Secretary of State website did not appear to be correct."
The lawsuit continued, "For Mr. West, despite our diligent efforts, we were unable to ascertain his current residential address, and therefore, have not yet made attempts to serve him personally. Instead, we have attempted to service him by mail at multiple possible addresses."
The filing further claimed that St. John and his counsel had previously been advised about a new law firm, but were given "no specific point of contact." They later discovered that the firm information that they were given wasn't affiliated with West at all.
"We will continue to make diligent and reasonable attempts to serve defendants," the suit noted, adding that they would even be willing to hire "appropriate agencies" to help find the disgraced former billionaire.

St. John is suing West for $4.5 million in damages after claiming he wasn't paid $900,00 for an 18-month contract while working as his Chief Financial Officer. The fiscal advisor also alleged West "screamed" and became "aggressive" after he was pressed for his payment.
"When confronted by the 18-month commitment that had just been made," the docs stated, "Mr. West stated words to the effect of 'The 18-month term was bulls**t' and 'You’re insane for even thinking I would stick to it.'"
