Kanye West is a prominent and accomplished hip-hop and music industry icon, known for his musical talent and business savvy. However, his actions and statements often generate controversy and criticism. He is facing a massive lawsuit and now it seems West finally hired a new lawyer to defend him.

According to a report by RadarOnline.com, West has finally found an attorney who will represent him in court after he was dropped by his previous team following his antisemitic rants.

West has informed a Los Angeles Superior Court judge that he has retained new legal representation, specifically Gregory K. Nelson from the law firm Weeks Nelson in San Diego, according to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com.

The filing stated, “I, Gregory K. Nelson, of Weeks Nelson, hereby enter my appearance as counsel for Defendants YE, f/k/a Kanye Omari West, Very Good Touring, Inc., Yeezy Apparel LLC and Yeezy LLC in this matter.”


The lawyers will be defending West in the $7 million lawsuit brought by a company named Phantom Labs. After his previous attorney, Nina D. Boyajian from the law firm Greenberg Traurig, withdrew as his representative, West had been without legal representation for several months.

In a court filing, Boyajian cited West’s “publicly made improper antisemitic remarks,” which led to his condemnation and disassociation from several entities and individuals who previously worked with or represented him. Additionally, Boyajian explained that due to certain members of West’s team leaving, she was unable to effectively communicate with West to represent him in the matter. Regardless, we’ll have to see how the lawsuit will proceed.
