Kanye West’s fifth divorce lawyer Samantha Spector quits as Kim and Pete split

Kanye West’s divorce lawyer has quit again, just a day before Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson announced that they have split.

The rapper’s ex started dating the comedian nine months ago but they have decided to be just friends, a source close to them told E! News.

They have “a lot of love and respect for each other,” the insider said, but found that long distancing and demanding scheduled made it “really difficult to maintain a relationship”.

Another insider told E! News that the divorce with Kanye is “moving ahead” and said they are “happily co parenting” their four children.

However, the 45-year-old’s divorce lawyer Samantha Spector has withdrawn from the case this week.

Kanye’s divorce lawyer quits

As reported by TMZ, Kanye’s divorce lawyer has quit the case. This came following a conference that Kim and Kanye had on Friday (August 5th) in LA as part of their divorce.

Samantha Spector asked the judge to relieve her as counsel as her relationship with Kanye is “irretrievably broken,” but she didn’t say what had happened between the pair.

Complex reports that there was a “breakdown in communication” and this is the fifth time the rapper’s divorce lawyer has quit.

She was due to resign next week, but the judge granted her request on Friday and she is no longer handling the divorce proceedings.

TMZ also reported that the divorce will go to trial in December if Kanye fails to submit his financial declarations to settle the remaining issues.
