Robert Stephan Cohen, who has also represented Rupert Murdoch and Chris Rock, has become Kanye’s sixth divorce lawyer, according to TMZ.

As Cohen is in New York and Kanye’s legal separation is pending in Los Angeles, the rapper has also retained attorney Nicholas A Salick of the Beverly Hills-based Salick Family Law Group, APLC, as an attorney in court. California, reports the site.

Cohen is the sixth attorney Kanye has hired during his divorce from Kim. Kanye is still working to settle custody and property issues with his ex-wife.

Last month, Kanye’s fifth divorce attorney, Samantha Spector, backed out of the case due to an irreconcilable rift with the rapper.

Before Spector, West relieved attorney Chris Melcher of his duties in the case, TMZ reported in March.

Insiders told the outlet at the time that West had been indecisive in his dealings with Melcher, sometimes looking to settle down and at other times looking to fight her in court.

At the time West switched representation from Melcher to Spector, Kardashian lawyer Laura Wasser said West changed lawyers “strategically” in an effort to slow down the legal process in the split, Mirror reported. .

Several weeks ago, Kanye accused Kim and Hulu, the Kardashian family’s giant streaming partner, of cheating on him when choosing where the kids go to school.

He compared himself to a wordless sperm donor and ranted about the kids attending a swanky private school in Los Angeles when he wanted them to go to his school, Donda Academy, set up in honor of his late mother.

In an apparent sign of victory – or at least peace with Kim – he recently shared videos of his two eldest children North, nine, and Saint, six, at his school – Donda Academy. They appeared happily singing and dancing with a group of other children and teachers.

In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Kanye – who now goes by just Ye – explained that while he and Kim were fighting over the raising of the children, he was also battling Adidas and Gap for creative control of his Yeezy products.

‘These little nuances… there were parallels at Gap, at Adidas and at me. It was kind of a disregard for the voice that I have in something that I co-created. I co-created the kids, I co-created the product at Gap, and I co-created the product at Adidas, he said.

“I want my children to go to Donda and I have to fight to say it.

He did, however, say he had a “new respect” for Kim and always wanted her to be “calm”.

“She is the mother of my children, and I apologize for any stress I have caused, even in my frustration, because God is calling me to be stronger. I need this person to be less stressed and best, sane, and as calm as possible to be able to raise these children at the end of the day,” he said.
