Kanye West's Fourth Lawyer Steps Down in Kim Kardashian Divorce Case
Kanye West just lost another one.
The Yeezy mogul’s attorney is walking away amid his ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian. Samantha Spector, who was Ye’s fourth lawyer, has filed documents to step down as his representation, according to The Blast.
It’s unclear exactly why Spector has decided to depart the case. In the filing, Spector says there has been “an irreconcilable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship.”
For the time being, the case will be handled by another member of his legal team, an out-of-state attorney from Pennsylvania that does not specialize in divorce.
Back in March, Ye hired Spector–who represented Nicole Young in her high-profile divorce from Dr. Dre–after firing his previous lawyer, Chris Melcher, after their relationship “became extremely difficult, with little communication.”
This is Ye’s fourth attorney to be removed from the case since Kim filed for divorce in February 2021. In a previous statement, Kim called out Ye for his “constant attacks” while referencing his legal musical chairs.
“I wish to handle all matters regarding our children privately and hopefully he can finally respond to the third attorney he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably,” wrote the Skims founder, who was declared legally single in March.
During the latest episode of her Hulu reality series “The Kardashians,” Kim apologized to her family for Ye’s repeated attacks and vowed to protect them. “I do recognize the impact my relationship has had on my family and I’ve never had the opportunity to say, I’m sorry, guys,” she said. “I’ve protected that for so long, but I said, I will never let that happen to you guys again.”
