The sixth time is a charm? In the midst of his divorce from Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has lost his fifth divorce attorney, leaving him without legal advice once again.

At a trial prep conference for the estranged couple on Friday (Aug. 5), Samantha Spector, Ye’s former attorney, asked a judge in a Los Angeles court to relieve her as West’s legal counsel. She cited her “irretrievably broken” relationship with her client, but did not explain why her correspondence was broken off. [via TMZ].

Although Spector set a date next week to sever legal ties with West, the judge immediately granted his request, meaning she is immediately relieved of being his attorney. As of press time, West has no legal representation for a divorce from her.

Reports of West and Kardashian’s split originally surfaced in January 2021. Since then, West has been involved in a host of controversies, many of which are related to his repeated harassment of Pete Davidson, Kardashian’s new partner.

While the couple have been considered legally single since March, they still have to work out some custody and property issues. Their divorce trial is scheduled for December 14.
