He is allegedly being sued after falsely announcing that his 'The Life of Pablo' album would be a Tidal exclusive.

However Kanye West seemed worlds away from the drama, as he sat smiling and joking on the front row of the Alyx show in Paris on Sunday.

The rapper, 41, had previously been visiting the French city with his wife Kim Kardashian, who had returned for the first time since she was held at gunpoint in 2016.

However after Kim headed home the star was left to fly solo as he attended the collection showing alone.

Kanye donned a dark grey shirt-style jacket which he matched with  pair of dark trousers and some white and grey sports shoes. 

The father-of-three accessorised his look with a black cap and added bling in the form of gold rings and a diamond encrusted ring.

Ahead of his 2016 album release Kanye assured fans that it would 'never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal.' 

However just six weeks later the entire album was readily available to download on Apple music.

The lawsuit was filed by disappointed fan Justin Baker-Rhett, who claimed that he only subscribed to music streaming service Tidal because of Kanye's impending album.

Tenuous: However a judge has since ruled that: 'Mr. West's argument is tenuous, and certainly does not pass muster in the context of a motion to dismiss', reports Pitchfork

Downbeat: Kanye emerged from the fashion show looking more downcast

Dismissing claims that fans had been misled, last year Kanye said 'The Life of Pablo had been: 'updated and remixed numerous times, with different vocals, lyrics, and arrangements.'

However a judge has since ruled that: 'Mr. West's argument is tenuous, and certainly does not pass muster in the context of a motion to dismiss', reports Pitchfork. 

The case will now go ahead after the U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Woods denied some parts of Tidal's motion to dismiss. 

MailOnline have contacted representatives for Kanye for further comment.
