Kanye West fires lawyer before Kim Kardashian divorce hearingAuthor: Yuvi March 2, 2022
NEW DELHI: Kanye West is turning to his legal team to determine whether Kardashian will be declared legally single ahead of the hearing.
Divorce attorney Chris Melcher confirmed to People magazine on Tuesday that he is no longer representing West in the proceedings. Samantha Spector will now take over.
As part of the married couple’s continuing legal battle, the rapper objected to Kardashian’s latest filing over the weekend, accusing West of spreading “misinformation” on social media about their “private family affairs and co-parenting”. accused of.
Kardashian, 41, said in court documents filed last Wednesday that her actions caused “emotional distress.”
The “Donda 2” musician responded on Friday, claiming Kardashian’s statement is a “double hearing” in court documents obtained by People Magazine.
West’s attorney said in the objection filing, “Kim claims she read something online allegedly by Kanye and described the post in her announcement as false information.” “Social media posts are not linked to the announcement.”
The objection continued, “Kim was required to present social media posts as evidence and show that the posts were written by Kanye. If this had been done, the posts would have been acceptable as a statement from a party rival. Instead, Kim argues a point that is not on the record. The statement is an unacceptable rumor… so Kanye asks that it be trodden.”
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.
The pair initially maintained a civil post-split relationship as they co-parented their four children—North, 8, St., 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2 1/2——but eventually between the pair. Things turned rocky.
As Kardashian’s romance with Pete Davidson flourished in the public eye, the Yeezy designer launched several attacks on social media directed at his estranged wife and “Saturday Night Live” star.
