Camille Vasquez and her law firm reportedly aren’t representing Kanye West anymore — and the publicist’s office has been looking for another lawyer.
“We’ve tried to find an attorney that can meet his legal needs,” said a representative for the Publicity email for Kanye West. “A lot of times it’s a matter of getting the right kind of attorney that can fulfill all his legal needs.”
“I think it’s pretty clear that there might be some real problems with Kanye West,” the rep said. “We’re not defending him anymore. When you look at what’s happened with Kanye, it’s a very clear reflection of where he is.”
West has said he wants to take action against the NBA for comments he made during his “All of the Lights.”
“I think that it’s fair to talk about a situation where you have an organization that wants to continue to talk to you and are talking to you about an issue that could potentially become a problem for them,” West said Saturday. “That’s why I said I was going to do it on my own, and I went and did it myself.”
He added: “Let me tell you what my response would be to every player in the NBA if they said one thing to me that made me want to punch them in the face. You know what I’d do? I would beat the hell out of them.”
The rapper is currently suing the NBA, claiming he’s been blackballed from the league because of his criticism of the players who chose West as host of their “All of the Lights.”
The league responded to the suit by saying it was “considering all options,” and that West would be welcome to come back if he wanted.
