Kanye West Fired His Divorce Attorney


There’s an old proverb that says you shouldn’t change horses midstream.  But that’s not advice Kanye is heeding after it’s been revealed he’s fired his divorce attorney just one day before a hearing scheduled for today to determine if Kardashian will be granted her request to be declared legally single.

Divorce attorney Chris Melcher confirmed to People mag on Tuesday that he is no longer representing West, in the proceedings.

Someone named Samantha Spector will now be taking over.

Last Friday Kanye’s attorney said that Kim claimed Kanye was spreading misinformation, but she didn’t back it up with proof. Likely because Kanye had taken it down by the time she had been alerted to the post.

“Kim claims she read something online allegedly by Kanye and characterizes the posts in her declaration as misinformation,” West’s attorney said in the objection filing. “The social media posts are not attached to the declaration.”

The objection continued, “Kim needed to offer the social media posts into evidence, and show that the posts were written by Kanye. Had that been done, the posts would be admissible as statements of a party opponent. Instead, Kim argues a point that is not in the record. The statement is inadmissible hearsay … so Kanye asks that it be stricken.”

This just gets messier by the day.
