Hours before his trial, Kanye West revealed he had changed his legal team. According to TMZ, Ye fired his late lawyer Chris Melcher after their relationship became “extremely difficult,” including a breakdown in communication.
Sources claim Ye kept changing his mind. One day, he wanted to deal with Kim and the others, expressing his desire to fight. Now, he’s hired Samantha Spector, the lawyer who represented Nicole Young in her high-profile divorce from Dr. Dre.
Dre was withdrawn by Laura Wasser during the divorce process, so The Kardashian-West divorce proceedings will once again be Spector and Wasser. This is Apparently Ye’s fourth lawyer since Kim filed for divorce in February 2021. Kim criticized Ye for his “constant attacks” in a statement last month, referring to 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,” she wrote.
The judge is expected to declare Kim legally single at Wednesday’s hearing. It is unclear whether Spector will ask the judge for a reprieve to give him more time to prepare as a new attorney.
