LOS ANGELES - A Kanye West fan is suing over the rapper's claim that his latest album would only be available to subscribers of the music streaming service Tidal.

The proposed class action lawsuit filed Monday in a federal court in San Francisco by Justin Baker-Rhett states that he was duped into subscribing to Tidal based on West's promises that his "The Life of Pablo" album would only be available there and not anywhere else. The album is now available on Apple Music and Spotify.

An email sent to Tidal seeking comment was not immediately returned.

The lawsuit alleges the promise of exclusive access to West's latest album led to an influx of new Tidal subscribers and allowed the service to collect users' personal information.
