Samantha Spector Representing Kanye
Spector was hired by Kanye as his new lawyer representing him in their divorce from Kim Kardashian. It seems Kanye has been having a difficult time with his lawyers as Spector is her fifth lawyer.
Kanye was recently represented by Chris Melcher but they eventually fell out maybe due to his contradictory feelings against the divorce proceedings with Kardashian.
On March 2nd, 2022, Rolling Stone reporter Nacy Dillon shared an update of the court proceedings of his divorce with Kim Kardashian who asked the judge to terminate her marital status before custody and property issues are resolved.
