Kanye West and Lloyd's of London have resolved the performer's $10 million lawsuit over canceled dates on his "Saint Pablo" tour, according to court papers obtained Thursday.

Doctors from UCLA and physicians provided by Lloyd's both concluded that West's medical condition require he not continue with the tour.

Kanye West has settled his lawsuit with his insurance company.

The case was dismissed by a California judge based on requests from lawyers on both sides. In his complaint, he said that he had filed an insurance claim two days after he checked himself into a psychiatric center. Lloyd's claimed drug use was an exclusion under the policy. He had been hospitalized in November 2016 after a series of concerts he gave where he went on freakish rants about Donald Trump and his friend Jay-Z. His $10 million lawsuit against British insurance firm Lloyd's of London has reached an "amicable" resolution.

They stated that Lloyd's syndicates were not paying and were claiming that West's marijuana use triggered a mental breakdown.

The company said that West's reason for the cancellations were not really beyond his control. Kanye's touring company Very Good Entertainment was also named in the suit. Responding to Lloyd's countersuit last September, Kanye's legal team denied there are any irregularities in his medical records and accused insurance bosses of engaging in a "contrived hunt for excuses not to pay" Very Good's insurance claim.
