According to a recent TMZ exclusive, Ye sacked his former lawyer Chris Melcher before his divorce court. Similarly, according to the magazine, Melcher’s connection with the Donda rapper had halted before the former’s expulsion from service. According to the source, one of the causes for the breakdown between Ye and Melcher was Ye’s conflicted sentiments about the divorce procedures with Kardashian. Kanye West has recruited attorney Samantha Spector to represent him in his divorce from his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. Spector will defend West in the forthcoming March 2 judicial hearing to decide if Kim Kardashian will be officially deemed single.
