Kanye West’s lawyer claims the rapper won’t talk or pay him

A lawyer representing Kanye West in an ongoing lawsuit claims the rapper refuses to pay him — or even talk to him.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Brian Brumfield asked to be relieved of representing West in his suit against an autograph dealer who accused the hitmaker of punching him.

Brumfield claims in the documents that West ended their employment on June 21.

“The defendant will also not speak to counsel and the defendant refuses to pay an attorney as well,” Brumfield alleged in the lawsuit.

The hearing on Brumfield’s motion is scheduled for July 29.

Representatives for Brumfield and West did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment. In Touch Weekly was the first to report the news.

The original suit — filed Jan. 10 by Justin Poplawski and his wife, Tiffany Marshall — accuses Ye of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence regarding the alleged incident with Poplawski. Marshall further claims in the suit that she suffered a loss of consortium.

Poplawski, who claims he had gotten West’s autograph before, allegedly stopped the rapper outside the Soho Warehouse social club on South Santa Fe Avenue in downtown Los Angeles in January 2022. According to the suit, West allegedly slapped Poplawski at the scene. .

When Poplawski allegedly asked for an apology, he claims the “Good Life” artist told him, “Apology for what?” and proceeded to hit Poplawski several more times, which he claims resulted in injury.

He claims the rapper acted out of aggression as a result of his tumultuous divorce proceedings from Kim Kardashian at the time.

The latest news comes shortly after West was named in another suit filed by a former Yeezy staffer earlier this month. The employee alleges that the rapper’s new wife, Bianca Censori, sent NSFW material to employees that was accessible to minors while they were working on the fashion designer’s latest endeavor: “Yeezy Porn.”

Censori adamantly denied the allegations in a statement provided to Page Six by West’s former chief of staff Milo Yiannopoulos.

“I have been authorized by Bianca to emphasize that any allegation that she has shown or caused to be shown any pornographic material to minors is offensive, disgusting, abhorrent and categorically and completely false,” Yiannopoulos said in part in a statement Monday, calling. the accusations “the most tragic and thirsty lie imaginable.”
