Kanye West hires Melinda Gates lawyer in ongoing Kim Kardashian divorce battle

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are announced legally single in March

Entertainment Desk : dhakamirror.com

Amid divorce battle with Kim Kardashian, estranged husband and rapper Kanye West has hired new attorneys. West has reportedly retained a well-known New York divorce lawyer who was hired by Melinda Gates for her multi-billion dollar split with ex-husband Bill Gates.

TMZ has said that Robert Stephan Cohen has become West’s sixth divorce attorney in his ongoing legal drama with ex Kim Kardashian.

Page Six also reported that a rep for the senior partner at Cohen Clair Lans Greifer Thorpe & Rottenstreich LLP confirmed to them that West recently hired Cohen as counsel.

Since Cohen is based in New York, TMZ reported that the hitmaker, 45, has also retained Beverly Hills-based attorney Nicholas A Salick of Salick Family Law Group, APLC as counsel as his legal separation is being tried in Los Angeles.

The attorney previously represented Chris Rock in his divorce from his wife of 20 years, Malaak Compton-Rock.

Cohen marks the sixth attorney West has hired in his divorce from Kardashian, 41, as he works on settling custody of their four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, as well as property.

Last month, Samantha Spector, West’s fifth divorce lawyer, withdrew from the case after two months due to an irreconcilable breakdown with the rapper.

Prior to Spector, the Grammy winner relieved attorney Chris Melcher of his duties in March.

Sources told TMZ at the time that West let go of the lawyer because their relationship “had become extremely difficult, with little communication”.

Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021, after nearly seven years of marriage, and has had a contentious co-parenting relationship with West since their split, notably during her nine-month relationship with Pete Davidson.

The SKIMS founder previously spoke out about her frustration over her ex’s ever-changing counsel as he blasted her repeatedly on social media.

In February, she penned: “I wish to handle all matters regarding our children privately and hopefully he can finally respond to the third attorney he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably.”

The former couple were declared legally single this March.
