Kanye West is out of an attorney, again. The rapper and former husband of Kim Kardashian lost his fifth attorney Samantha Spector, as she asked a judge to release her from the case. The motion was granted on Friday, August 5, per documents obtained by HollywoodLife. This leaves him currently without representation. “Attorney has shown sufficient reasons why the motion to be relieved as counsel should be granted and why the attorney has brought a motion under Code of Civil Procedure section 284(2) instead of filing a consent under section 284(1),” the official docs read. “Attorney is relieved as counsel of record for client.”
The papers also stated that the action is, “effective upon the filing of the proof of service of this signed order upon the client.” High profile attorney Samantha, who has also worked with Amber Heard (per The Sun,) was previously hired after Kanye fired attorney Chris Melcher in March. In a hearing Wednesday, March 2, Kim, 41, was granted a request to be declared legally single. But the divorce actions continue as the two battle out the details of their arrangement with daughters North, 9, Chicago, 4, and sons Saint, 6, and Psalm, 3. Kim and Kanye were married for six years.
The SKIMS founder is represented in the split by celebrity powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser. The Loyola Law School grad has also headed up a number of extremely high-profile divorce cases, including Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard, Gwen Stefani vs Gavin Rossdale, Jennifer Garner vs Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds vs Scarlett Johansson, and Britney Spears vs Kevin Federline.
Kanye, 45, has previously appeared to struggle with Kim’s apparent decision to end the marriage for good, lashing out at Kim’s boyfriend Pete Davidson via social media and in a rancorous music video. “He’s finally accepted it,” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY back in April 2021, indicating that the “Famous” rapper was coming to terms with their split.
A separate source confirmed, also in 2021. “Instead of extending the heartbreak, it is easier to start getting things done for the benefit of the whole family,” the second source told HollywoodLife. “His lawyers are fully aware of the next steps and will be dealing with all that heavy lifting.”

Jennifer Lopez Rocks Rainbow Tie-Dye Sweats In 1st Pic Back In LA After Italy Getaway
Jennifer Lopez doesn’t waste time getting back to what she best — looking amazing while getting from one place to the next! Fresh off her Italian getaway, the Marry Me star and brand-new bride stepped out in Los Angeles on August 8, rocking an unexpected tie-dye rainbow look! In photos, Jennifer stunned in the eye-catching ensemble, which consisted of bright sweats and a hoodie, bright-pink statement sunglasses, and oversized hoop earrings. She also carried a green Birkin bag and a cell phone. The “Jenny from The Block” icon finished off the look with a perfect pink manicure and classic Nike sneakers with neon details.
JLo’s loud look comes after she was seen wearing a breezy blue outfit for a gorgeous photoshoot on a yacht in Capri, Italy. But she’s also been throwing out bridal vibes with stunning white looks, among other fashion statements, ever since her surprise July 16th nuptials to Ben Affleck in Las Vegas.
She surprised and delighted fans by rocking a wedding dress from an “old movie” for the ceremony, and later revealing that she legally took Ben’s last name — she’s now Jennifer Lynne Affleck. Bennifer 2.0 spent a little time apart after their leisurely European family-style honeymoon, with Jennifer staying in Europe for work, and Ben returning to Los Angeles.
A source close to Jen told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY last week that the time apart certainly hasn’t undermined their new union and has in fact made their love “stronger.” Furthermore, before JLo returned to Los Angeles, the source tells HL she spent a lot of time connecting with her new hubby via phone. “They are always talking, texting, FaceTiming, and even camming when they are apart working,” they said in the exclusive comments. “And the time that they spend away from each other makes reuniting again that much better. JLo loves the fact that she knows her husband will be there for her no matter what.”
