Kim Kardashian's Lawyer Laura Wasser Addresses Kanye West's Behavior Amid Divorce

The famed attorney questioned why the rapper would air out his grievances on social media.

Celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser is opening up about Kanye "Ye" West having aired out his grievances on social media amid the ongoing and very public divorce from her longtime client Kim Kardashian

The 53-year-old attorney didn't mince words in an interview with Bustle, telling the outlet there was no reason for the rapper to launch a barrage of public attacks on social media directed at the SKIMS founder. The rapper, for one, questioned Kim’s parenting abilities, and he also took aim at Kim's boyfriend, Pete Davidson, when Ye released a music video for his single, “Eazy,” which featured a claymation figure of Pete being buried alive. 

The rapper's antics, which got him barred from this year's GRAMMYs, left Wasser essentially shaking her head.

"There's no reason that you need to come out publicly and make statements about somebody when you're going through what should be a pretty private thing," the Cal Berkeley and Loyola Law School alum told Bustle. "I mean, 'Hi, Kanye West. Forgetting my involvement with that, the whole world has watched [and thought] that's probably not the best way to go about things, particularly as a parent."

Earlier this month, a source told ET that Kanye has since informed Kim he's "going away to get help" and agreed to stop harassing her and cyber bullying Pete. The source also said that, "for the sake of their kids, Kanye told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better." It's unclear if Kanye sought help at a treatment facility or otherwise.

A rep for Ye told ET, "At this time, Ye is committed to a healthy co-parenting relationship with Kim and is and focused on raising their beautiful children."

Wasser, who filed divorce papers for Kim back in February 2021, has a roster of A-list clients that includes Ryan Reynolds and Britney Spears, among others. But her advice about staying off social media during a bitter divorce isn't limited to celebrities. Simply put, the podcast host and author suggests, when possible, staying away from Instagram.

"People use it as evidence [in court]," the she says. "He says he has no money. Look at this picture of him with [dollar] bills...' During COVID, people were posting pictures of them with their kids at events and then the other parent would be like, 'We're supposed to be quarantining.' It's just a great way to figure out what's going on."

In short, Wasser says anyone going through a divorce but wants to remain on social media should feed that beast with "vanilla stuff over the next however many months, so that it's not raising eyebrows and creating more attention."
