Divorce attorney Chris Melcher confirmed that he is no longer representing Kanye West, 44, in the proceedings. Samantha Spector will now be taking over.

The change comes one day before a scheduled hearing on March 2 to determine if Kim Kardashian, 41, will be granted her request to be declared legally single.

The attorney worked for Nicole Young in her divorce from Dr. Dre, finalized late last year.

The KKW Beauty founder, who filed for divorce in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage, previously noted that her ex had switched legal representation many times in the year since their split was announced.

As part of the estranged couple's continued legal battle, the rapper filed an objection over the weekend to Kardashian's latest filing, in which she accused West of spreading "misinformation" on social media regarding their "private family matters and co-parenting."

Last month, she wrote on Instagram,

"Divorce is difficult enough on our children, and Kanye's obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all."
Kardashian stated that his actions have "created emotional distress in the court documents filed last Wednesday." The Donda musician responded on Friday, claiming Kardashian's statement is "double hearsay" in court documents.
"Kim claims she read something online allegedly by Kanye and characterizes the posts in her declaration as misinformation," West's attorney said in the objection filing. "The social media posts are not attached to the declaration."

The objection continued,

"Kim needed to offer the social media posts into evidence and show that Kanye wrote the posts. Had that been done, the posts would be admissible as statements of a party opponent. Instead, Kim argues a point that is not in the record. The statement is inadmissible hearsay ... so Kanye asks that it be stricken."

The exes share children North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
