Legal team: Kanye West has hired Camille Vasquez who famously defended Johnny Depp in his defamation trial, to handle his business interests
Earlier this month the rapper wrote in a tweet: ‘I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.’
Deafcon – also known as defense readiness condition – is an alert used by the US Armed Forces to indicate how quickly the military can be deployed during deadly emergencies and attacks.
The rapper’s Twitter account was later suspended.
In the interview with Morgan, West clarified that he wanted to apologize to the Jews who did nothing wrong. West’s comments were specifically geared towards Jewish Hollywood executives for their treatment of Black entertainers.
While the ex-husband of Kim Kardashian has been known to have unpredictable outbursts on social media – he was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 2016 – his rants have become more frequent this year.
Recently, West hired Camille Vasquez, the attorney who defended Johnny Depp, to handle his business interests.
Vasquez, who gained national attention due to her representation of Depp in his heated defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, will be among the lawyers at the Brown Rudnick firm now working with West, TMZ reports.
