Kanye West’s Former Lawyers Sever Ties w/ Rapper After Months Of Failing To Locate Him

One entity on the hunt for Kanye West has finally pinpointed the rap star.

According to reports, a New York-based law firm, which has been trying to end its partnership with the musician, was finally able to serve the rapper legal papers.

Reportedly, court documents reveal that Greenberg Traurig, LLP legally cut ties with West as of this past Wednesday (February 1st). The initial request was reportedly sent on November 30th. However, as the dust continues to settle around the former billionaire’s recent media appearances, West has been allegedly difficult to find. As previously reported, the 44-year-old is also being sought out by his ex-business manager, who says the rapper owes him $4.5 million in unpaid wages.

Reportedly, West has gotten himself new legal representation and they’ve taken over the musician’s pending court summonings. This comes shortly after it was revealed the “Donda” artist secretly married his head of architect at Yeezy, Bianca Censori. Documents from the law firm confirming the attorney’s relationship dissolution with West reportedly read:

“On January 18, 2023, an attorney based in California contacted my firm advising that he would be representing ‘Ye on some of his legal matters’…During the course of several emails and a phone call with this attorney, I requested that he coordinate personal service of the Order on Ye.”

And continued:

“On February 1, 2023, the attorney referenced above emailed me the executed Certificate of Service attached hereto as Exhibit A. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the foregoing is true and correct.”

The law firm reportedly claims extreme measures were taken in an effort to contact West to no avail. After reportedly posting a billboard to “publicly renounce its association” with the musician, Greenberg Traurig asked the courts to grant the request without West’s input. However, a court judge denied the motion on the grounds that she didn’t feel “confident” the institution did enough to notify the client he was being dropped.

Reportedly, the law firm has been representing West in his copyright infringement case. In a legal battle against Ultra International Music Publishing, West is fighting over the use of Marshall Jefferson’s 1986 hit “Move Your Body,” which is featured on the rapper’s “Donda 2” song “Flowers.” According to the report, the initial suit was launched in June of last year.

The suit is reportedly still ongoing and is expected to be taken over by the rapper’s new attorneys.
