Former Kanye West lawyers have cut ties with him in an unusual way: through newspaper advertisements.
Thomas St. John, his former business manager, claimed in December that he was unable to locate him for weeks in order to serve the “Donda” rapper with a lawsuit. It immediately raised the possibility that he was missing.
The persistent claims that Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband had vanished were called into question when he was seen attending a church service earlier this month.
His previous attorneys are reportedly attempting to contact the father-of-four by placing print advertisements in Los Angeles newspapers in an attempt to get him off their client list.
According to court documents obtained by HotNewHipHop, the Greenburg Traurig Law Firm is employing a “multi-pronged strategy” to locate the contentious rapper.
The papers read:
“Publication of the Withdrawal Order’s contents in two Los Angeles-area newspapers, where Ye appears to reside, will also apprise him of the Withdrawal Order.”
It went on to say that because of Kanye’s celebrity, the Withdrawal Order’s marketing may receive a lot of media attention, potentially increasing the likelihood that the rapper will see the order.
Following the anti-Semitism controversy, the rapper’s legal representation was terminated. The company had previously represented him against Ultra International Music Publishing.
Thomas also asked the court for more time this month to locate his former business partner and serve him with a lawsuit. According to the man, Kanye West is being sued for $4.5 million in damages after abruptly terminating their collaboration.
Thomas claimed in the lawsuit that Kanye promised to pay him $300,000 per month for his parts but stopped paying him after three months of their 18-month agreement.
However, as word spread about Ye’s whereabouts, details about his wife emerged; they did not, however, obtain a marriage license. They are devoted to one another, but their union is not legally binding.
Yeezy designer Bianca Censori was allegedly married to Kanye West, according to TMZ.
They were photographed arriving at the Waldorf Astoria last week wearing their new rings, with the rapper wearing what appeared to be a wedding band on his left hand.
Kanye’s new song, “Censori Overload,” is said to be a dedication to his new leading lady.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian divorced in November after nearly seven years of marriage.
