Rapper Kanye West’s divorce attorney has resigned, citing an “irreconcilable rift in the attorney-client relationship.”
The ‘Eazy’ rapper hired Samantha Spector to represent him in his split from Kim Kardashian just two months ago after his former lawyer Chris Melcher was fired, but now the legal expert has filed a motion to being relieved of his duties as a solicitor after there was an “irreconcilable rift in the solicitor-client relationship”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
According to documents obtained by “Entertainment Tonight”, Samantha, who recently represented Nicole Young in her divorce from Dr. Dre, served the petition on Kanye and communicated with him by email and mail, as well as by intermediary of his new lawyer Deborah Hong. .
The petition read, “The lawyer communicated with Ms. Hong, a lawyer, who confirmed that she was acting on behalf of Ye and should receive all communications directed to her.”
Kanye fired his former lawyer just two days before a hearing in which Kim was declared legally celibate.
It was claimed at the time that his relationship with Chris had become “extremely difficult”, with little communication between them and it seems the 44-year-old rapper may have been a difficult client to work with as at times he had said he wanted to work things out with Kim, and to others he expressed a desire to fight.
It has previously been claimed that Kanye was trying to ‘disconnect’ from the ‘drama’ of his divorce.
A source said, “Kanye has been keeping a low profile and focusing on healing. He’s trying to disconnect from all the drama that happened between him and Kim.”
Kim had been the victim of a torrent of abuse on Instagram from the “DONDA” rapper when he implied that Kim had stopped “allowing him” to see their children after the divorce and he then posted a clip video that appeared to show him beheading and burying Kim’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson.

The source added: “He is focused on taking care of himself, getting healthier and getting away from all the craziness. He cares deeply about his family and his children. They are his number one priority. one and it works on itself.”
