Kanye hired Camille as part of a top team of lawyers at the Brown Rudick law firm, TMZ reported Friday.

She became an A-list lawyer earlier this year when she represented Johnny Depp during his defamation trial against Amber Heard.

Camille has not commented on her upcoming appearance with Kanye, also known as Ye, but she will not be representing him in her divorce proceedings with Kim, 42.

When news of Camille and Kanye’s upcoming partnership broke, many fans of the rapper and the Kardashians shared their shock on social media.

One Twitter post read: “So disappointed that Camille Vasquez agreed to take on Kanye West as a client. Coarse.”

Another asked, “What the hell?”

But a third described it as: “The plot we needed!”

“Best decision ever,” suggested another.

CUT THE CABLE

Kanye’s move to find a new legal team came on the same day that Balenciaga, the brand known for its collaborations with Kim, severed ties with the Donda star.

“Balenciaga no longer has any relationship or plans for future projects related to this artist,” the brand’s parent company, Kering, said in a brief statement.

Last month Adidas put its relationship with Kanye’s Yeezy brand under “scrutiny” following his social media rants and public attacks against the company’s CEO.

Just a few weeks earlier, he had severed ties with retailer Gap.

RAPPER’S RAGE

In addition to his crumbling business empire, the rapper is also experiencing a public image crisis after a series of highly controversial remarks.

George Floyd’s family is suing Kanye for $250 million after comments he made about the murdered father-of-five’s death on the Drink Champs podcast.

He was also banned from Twitter and Instagram on October 10 after posting anti-Semitic content, and has since agreed to buy the censorship-free Parlér social media app.

The hitmaker previously caused a storm at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month after he was pictured with Candace Owens wearing a White Lives Matter Jersey.

Kanye has also made a number of public outcries against his ex-wife and her family, expressing his disapproval of how the four children he shares with Kim are being raised.

He told fans that he wants his children to leave the private school they currently attend and enroll in his own school, Donda Academy.

In unaired footage from a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson, he also claimed that someone had planted “fake babies” in his home “to sexualize my children.”

In footage that aired, he criticized Kim’s brand Skims for using “sexualized imagery” and accused the company of embracing “Jeezy ideas”.

Kanye was also previously embroiled in an online feud with Kim’s ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, whom he repeatedly threatened.

Kanye's public image and business empire are in crisis mode after a series of controversial remarks and stunts.
