KANYE West’s celebrity lawyer has quit as the rapper’s nasty divorce with ex Kim Kardashian moves on.
Attorney Samantha Spector had previously asked the judge on the case to relieve her of her duties from Kanye’s counsel.
Confirmed by The US Sun, the judge has now granted the lawyer her request which means the famous hitmaker is once again without representation.
Back in May, The Blast reported Samantha had “filed to withdraw” from the high-profile family legal case just two months after taking the job.
At the time, the outlet reported that she bowed out because of “an irreconcilable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship.”
The source said: “The case will be handled by one of his other lawyers,” they continued, including “an out of the state attorney from Pennsylvania that is not a divorce attorney.”
Kanye’s now former lawyer Samantha is recognized by The Los Angeles Business Journal as one of the “Most Influential Women Attorneys” in Los Angeles.
She also previously worked with celebrities like Amber Heard and Dr. Dre’s ex-wife Nicole Young.
Before Samantha, Kanye was represented by Chris Melcher before the hitmaker fired him as their as their rapport was “extremely difficult, with little communication.”
An insider shared with TMZ: “At times, Kanye had expressed he just wanted to settle things with Kim … and at others, he expressed a desire to put up a fight.”
