According to RadarOnline, the court documents revealed St. John attended court this week pleading for another extension on service.
In December, St. John sued West for breaching their agreement. The business manager claimed West hired him in March 2022 on a monthly fee of $300K. However, St. John added that he was not paid for his 18-month contract.

"Because of Mr West's celebrity status and his own interests in protecting his privacy and information about where he resides, additional time and resources are needed to ascertain his whereabout for personal service, and additional time and resources are needed to attempt other forms of service," the motion reads.
St. John has pleaded with the court to grant him until March to complete service.
