Attorney Lisa Zeiderman says, Kanye West (Ye) may have a challenging time retaining an attorney to represent him because he has already gone through six lawyers in less than two-years for his divorce action with reality star Kim Kardashian.
As a reporter who spent two-decades covering Hollywood Celebrities, from my experience the stars have always been held to a higher standard especially when they are trying to lead a normal/quiet life, such as going to the grocery store, pumping gas, grabbing dinner, or dropping off the dry cleaning simply because they are well established household names. If fans aren’t busy trying to take their picture and post it on social media with a comment underneath, they will inquire and seek details about what the stars were like. Were they nice, rude, did they leave you a generous tip? Unfortunately, being a recognizable face comes with a price, especially if you are going through a divorce. Take for example Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (Ye.) Since Ms. Kardashian filed for a divorce back in February 2021, Mr. West has reportedly gone to many extremes to make the situation more difficult for Ms. Kardashian. For instance. Mr. West took to his social media handles to attack Ms. Kardashian, her family and former boyfriend Pete Davidson whom the reality star was dating for nine-months. As if those widely read confrontations weren’t embarrassing enough, Mr. West recently went one step further to promote his antisemitic propaganda on social media, where the rapper has more than 18-million followers on Instagram and 31-million followers on Twitter. Those actions resulted in Mr. West’s 6th attorney letting him go and companies such as GAP, Foot Locker, Balenciaga, Adidas, and West’s talent agency reportedly dropping him as a partner and client. Forbes then affirmed Mr. West (Ye) has been dropped from their billionaire status list.
