Ye West‘s former lawyers can’t reach him to advise him that he’s dropped as a client. The law firm dropped the rapper after his antisemitic rants.
Ye, formerly Kanye West, went missing sometime last month. Ye’s former business manager, who is suing him for $4.5 million, said in court that he hasn’t spoken to Ye in weeks.
But most troubling of all, Ye apparently missed spending the Christmas holidays with his four children by aspiring lawyer Kim Kardashian.
Ye, 45, is very close to his children, 9-year-old daughter North, son Saint, 7, daughter Chicago, 4, and 3-year-old son, Psalm.
Friends say he would never miss spending the holidays with his kids who he loves dearly.
Greenberg Traurig LLP, which represented West until recently, told Insider magazine that the law firm can’t find Ye to tell him they’ve dropped him as a client.
Legally they must formally notify Ye that they no longer represent him. But they are unable to locate him.
In a December 12 letter to a federal judge reviewed by Insider, an attorney for the firm told the judge they were unable to reach him.
The judge, Analisa Torres, said the law firm can’t officially cut ties with Ye until they hand him her court order allowing them to withdraw as his attorneys of record.
This is troubling news for Ye’s fans who are growing more worried as time passes with still no word from him.
2022 has been a rough year for Ye. In October, he was dropped by Adidas, Gap, Balenciaga, and Vogue magazine after his racist outbursts.
His deal with Adidas cost him $500 million. He is reportedly down to his last $100 million.
In November, Ye agreed to pay his ex-wife, Kim, $200,000 a month in child support.
Ye’s fans are frustrated that Kim and the news media don’t seem to care that Kanye is missing.
Is Kim hiding Kanye? Is it like get out? Or does she just not care that he’s missing?
