Another divorce lawyer has been hired by Kanye West; this one is the same one who represented Melinda Gates in her multibillion-dollar divorce from Bill Gates.
Ye has hired Robert Stephan Cohen of Cohen Clair Lans Greifer Thorpe & Rottenstreich LLP as his sixth divorce attorney in the dispute with Kim Kardashian, according to sources with direct knowledge. Interestingly, Ye has hired Nicholas A. Salick of Salick Family Law Group, APLC as his legal counsel in California because Kim’s divorce is taking place in Los Angeles and Cohen is based in New York.
In addition to Melinda, Cohen has represented Rupert Murdoch, Chris Rock, Athina Onassis, and others.
Kim filed for divorce in November, and in March, a judge declared her legally single after she submitted paperwork stating, “I very much desire to be divorced. “Custody and property issues must still be resolved between the couple.
Property shouldn’t be a problem, given that Kim and Kanye already had a prenuptial agreement, as we know. According to Kanye’s recent statements, Kim has custody of the children approximately 80% of the time and primarily cares for them.
Since Kim filed for divorce, their relationship has been erratic. At times, they have been able to get along, attending events with their children together, and at other times, he has attacked her on social media about everything from her relationship with Pete Davidson, her ex, to where their children go to school.
