Kanye West parted ways with his fifth divorce lawyer this week

In March, Kanye West got suspended from Instagram for targeted harassment and abusive posts. That seemed to be one of the lowest points of his then-months-long stalking and harassment of his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. Shortly after that, Kanye apparently told Kim that he was going to stop with all of the messiness and go away somewhere, perhaps off-grid, and possibly get treatment. He ended up canceling his Coachella appearance and we truly haven’t heard anything about him in two months.

In early March, the judge in Kim and Kanye’s divorce case finally granted Kim’s request to bifurcate the divorce. Kim was declared legally single, even though Kanye had done the most to stall any and all proceedings. He even fired his fourth divorce lawyer right before the bifurcation hearing. He hired his fifth divorce attorney, Samantha Spector, that same week. Now it looks like Spector is out of there too.

Kanye West is losing his top-notch divorce attorney in the ongoing battle with ex-wife Kim Kardashian. According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Yeezy’s divorce lawyer Samantha Spector has filed to withdraw from the high-profile family law case.

In the filing, Spector says there has been an irreconcilable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship. Interestingly, there is not a lot more information as to why Kanye is losing his premiere lawyer, except the case will be handled by one of his other lawyers…for now. The person listed in the documents is an out of the state attorney from Pennsylvania that is not a divorce attorney.

I wonder if the “irreconcilable breakdown” is simply that Kanye is away somewhere and not communicating with his lawyers whatsoever. I wonder if this is his final attempt to stall the divorce he does not want: he simply won’t communicate with his lawyers or respond to anything from Kim’s lawyers.

In a recent episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Kim apologized to her family for all of the sh-t Kanye said about them publicly and privately.

Oh, Kanye is apparently back in town this week – he was seen out with North. They went to Nobu. TMZ says that he was spending time in Japan? Hm.

    Why am I not surprised?

    Maybe he should represent himself.

  3. MsIam says:

    Jeez I thought this was already over. They both have moved on with other people, enough is enough.

      It’s a power move.

    • Call Me Mabel says:

      Ye won’t “let” it be over. He is allowed to run around LA, Wyoming and whatever fashion week will have him with new strange, but Kim is not “allowed” to leave him and his unerring genius. He will make her and anyone around her suffer for her audacity to try and leave him, as much as he can, for as long as he can. He cannot accept the reality of the situation.

    @Amy Bee LOL

    That child does not look happy.

      Maybe it’s because she’s tired of the paps? This one picture doesn’t mean she hates her dad. I have seen plenty of pics where she’s smiling and hugging her dad.

    I feel so much for the children — especially North, who’s oldest and therefore likely understands the most about what’s going on. I really, really hope that things can be finalized in a non-dramatic way and that there’s a stable relationship for the kids with both parents going forward.

    High hopes, I know.

    I’m all in for kids being allowed to have a healthy and loving relationship with both parents who are separated/divorced. The key is healthy and loving. Kanye has proven himself to be unable (at this time) to be emotionally stable enough to have one-on-one time with his kids. I sure hope, for the mental and emotional health of his kids, there’s a neutral 3rd party not pictured that is supervising this visit. It’s not North’s job to have to figure out how to manage his emotional health or his outbursts. I’m sure he’s trying not to have them in front of her but he’s not mentally healthy enough (at this time) to do so. He’s proven that over and over. I hope there’s someone who will step in on her behalf if/when Kanye veers off topic and starts bashing her mom and the rest of the family. When Kanye bashes Kim et al, North interprets this as him bashing her because she’s a part of Kim and her family. My heart goes out to these kids.

  8. ANON says:

    Thank you for calling Kanye’s abuse what it was, “months-long stalking and harassment of his estranged wife”.

    It made me sick how Netflix released and promoted the Kanye documentary at the same time he was making public threats and harassing his ex-wife.

  9. The Recluse says:

    Literally, the other day I was thinking how quiet it was on the Kanye front….and now here we go.

  10. Jessica says:

    He also collaborated with MC Donald’s somewhat recently and designed new boxes for the burgers. Seriously.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      His designs should be limited to fast food joints. He is a manipulative and abusive POS who is causing harm unnecessarily to their children. He should be forced to suck it up and the judge allow the proceedings to progress, no matter how many attorneys he fires or quit. Kanye should make his children his top priority, not his precious ego. He is irredeemable.

    They’re all messy. Kanye was in Japan with Chaney, paying Kim no mind. Meanwhile, Kim was posting pics on sm, being shady to Chaney.
