Kanye West has hired Camille Vasquez, the lawyer who defended Johnny Depp, to handle his business interests.

Vasquez, who gained national fame over 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.

The law firm declined to confirm to DailyMail.comwhether or not it has secured West as a client.

It comes after Balenciaga dropped West as a business partner while Adidas threatens to cut ties with the rapper following his anti-Semitic rants on social media.

WWD reported that Balenciaga had dropped the troubled rapper who has been on a tirade lately calling for death to Jews who have wronged him and also calling President Biden the ‘r’ word.

Parent company Kering said the French fashion house would no longer be working on projects with the rapper and fashion designer who has legally changed his name to Ye.

‘Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist,’ Kering told WWD.

Charlamagne tha God has claimed Kanye Westcalled him to scream over Pete Davidson‘s ’10inch manhood’ during the comedian’s brief romance with Kim Kardashian.

Appearing on the Brilliant Idiots podcast, the radio host, 44, claimed Kanye, 45, wanted him to ‘s**t on’ his friend Pete, 29, when he called him in November 2021 at the start of Pete and ex-wife Kim’s romance.

He said: ‘He’s like, “we got to save the new Marilyn Monroe” talking about Kim. I’m like, “you know Pete is my friend, right?”‘

Revealing the conversation then took a salacious turn, he claimed Kanye said: ‘My wife is out here f*****g a white boy with a 10-inch penis and you won’t help me?

‘My wife is out here f*****g a white boy with a 10-inch penis, and you telling me that’s your friend, but you’re supposed to be culture.’

Charlamagne said: ‘What am I supposed to do but laugh at that.’

He added that he was revealing the conversation after Kanye asked why he was commenting on Pete’s manhood size on the radio, during an episode of Drink Champs

He said: ‘The reason I keep bringing up Pete’s penis on the radio is because I know it f***s with you, and you said that to me, but he gets on the interview and acts like he doesn’t know where that came from.

Pete and Kim split in August after nine months together. The reality personality, 41, and Pete, 28, were first linked in October last year weeks after Kim made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, where the now ex-couple shared an on-screen kiss.

However after less than a year together, an insider told DailyMail.com that the pair have decided to just be friends – citing demanding schedules and the long distance as Pete works on a project in Australia while Kim is based in the U.S.

Pete has spent months filming his upcoming movie Wizards! in Australia, where Kim visited him in July for a romantic getaway in the Daintree Rainforest.

Kanye had  launched social media attacks at the SNL star when his and Kim’s relationship was revealed.

Kanye was criticized for decapitating and burying a Pete lookalike in a disturbing music video.

The video was panned on social media for its implied threats.

In March Pete addressed Kanye‘s ongoing social media attacks in a text message exchange shared to comedian Dave Sirus’ account on Sunday morning.

The  SNL star, who has used Dave’s account in the past — recently to share a few kind words following the death of comedian Bob Saget — demanded Kanye take his public battle somewhere else and meet him ‘face to face’ instead of airing dirty laundry online.

Pete began the text exchange referring to his disparaging nickname Skete before sharing that he was actually in bed with Kanye’s estranged wife Kim as he shared a thumb’s up selfie showing off his arsenal of tattoos while casually laying down.

‘Yo it’s Skete, Can you please take a second and calm down. It’s 8am and it don’t gotta be like this,’ Davidson wrote.

‘Kim is literally the best mother I’ve ever met. What she does for those kids is amazing and you are so f***ing lucky that she’s your kids mom.’

He added: ‘I’ve decided I’m not gonna let you treat us this way anymore and I’m done being quiet. Grow the f*** up.’

Kanye quickly came back with: ‘Oh you using profanity, Where are you right now?’

Davidson didn’t miss a beat as he texted West: ‘In bed with your wife.’

Trying to throw mental health issues around as if he didn’t struggle with his own, Kanye wrote: ‘Happy to see you’re out the hospital and rehab.’

The comedian fought fire with fire as he responded: ‘Same here. It’s wonders what those places do when you go get help. You should try it.

He added: ‘I’m in La for the day if you wanna stop being a little internet b**** boy and talk.’

‘You don’t scare me bro. Your actions are so p**** and embarrassing. It’s so sad to watch you ruin your legacy on the daily.’

Kanye wrote back: ‘You’re more than welcome to come to Sunday Service.’

‘Why don’t we meet after Sunday service and saints game … I’ll be at the BHH we can have food and talk it out in my room. Privately one on one. Man to man,’ Davidson wrote.

‘What you are doing to your family is dangerous and going to scar them for life. Please handle these matters privately bro I beg you.’

West’s mind was one-tracked back to his gospel series and he wrote: ‘You wanna see me, Come to Sunday Service.’

‘This isn’t public dude. I’m not here for pictures and press. Which is obviously all you care about,’ Pete continued. ‘My offer stands. I wish you’d man up for once in your life.’

And then, despite all of Kanye’s verbal attacks against his estranged wife and her boyfriend, Pete offered West a helping hand on a possible new journey toward mental wellness.

‘Let me help you man. I struggle with mental stuff too. It’s not an easy journey,’ he wrote. ‘You don’t have to feel this way anymore. There’s no shame in having a little help. You’ll be so happy and at peace.’

Davidson wrote that Kanye had no idea what was going on behind scenes as Pete pleaded with his fellow comedians and even his employer to not make jabs at the rapper even though West continued to belittle Pete online.

‘You have no idea how nice I’ve been to you despite your actions towards me,’ he wrote. ‘I’ve stopped SNL from talking about or making fun of you which they’ve wanted to do for months. ‘I’ve stopped stand up comedians from doings bits about you cause I don’t want the father of my girls kids to look bad out there.’

‘I have your back even though you treat me like s*** because I want everything to be smooth.’

‘But if you continue to press me like you have for the past 6 months, I’m gonna stop being nice.

Earlier this month West made his surprise modelling debut at Paris Fashion Week.

The star opened Balenciaga’s SS23 show, walking down a muddy catwalk.

Demna, creative director of the luxury fashion brand, explained that the mud is ‘a metaphor for digging for truth and being down to earth’.

The Georgian fashion designer explained: ‘Individualism in fashion is downgraded to pseudo trends dictated by a post in stories of some celebrity of the moment… fashion in its best-case scenario should not need a story to be sold to someone… let us let everyone be anyone.’

Nia Long Says ‘Fresh Prince’ Costar Will Smith ‘Carried a Burden for Many Years to Represent’ Perfection

Nia Long is proud of how far Will Smithhas come.

In speaking of her former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar, Long, 52, applauded Smith, 54, for how he’s handled himself in the spotlight.

“I will always love him. He’s had an incredible career, and he’s carried a burden for many years to try — to represent what perfection looks like,” Long, who played Smith’s character’s girlfriend and fiancée Beulah “Lisa” Wilkes on the series, said in an interview with Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy. “Or what achievement looks like.”

Long also reflected on her generation’s idea of “celebrity” — and how Smith fit into that box. “I don’t think that — at least when we were growing up — there was room to be human. I think he’s now able to be human,” she added.

Last year, Smith went viral after slappingChris Rock on stage at the Oscars. The unscripted moment came after Rock, 57, mocked Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved hairstyle, which was done to her alopecia.

Smith, in turn, faced a great deal of backlash before he eventually apologized for his behavior.

Though Long did not directly mention Smith’s outburst, she equated life in the spotlight to that of strict routine, which sometimes does not allow authenticity.

“We all have our moments in life where we need to reconcile things that we suppress,” she said. “And I think — it’s hard growing up in this business and being front and center every day, all day.”

Of her own career, and backseat spotlight, she added. “Think about it — I can go to the grocery store anytime I want to, and for the most part, people are like ‘Hey, Nia Long.’ No one’s chasing me down the street. I still have my anonymity, and I appreciate that about my career.”

During the conversation, Long also got emotional discussing the difficulties she’s faced in recent months. Long went through a very public breakup last year with her fiancé, former Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, after 13 years together. He had been caught having an affair with a female subordinate within the Celtics organization.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months, and I’ve had to just say ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up’ — oh, my God I’m about to cry,” Long added. “You pick yourself back up, and you keep it moving.”

Did Amber Heard Made Johnny Depp Go Through Worst During His Lowest Points? ( Photo Credit – Instagram ; Movie Still )

Amber Heard very well planned steps in divorce against Johnny Depp to take him down during his lowest phases? Read details now!

Amber Heard has been declared guilty of defaming Johnny Depp during the latest Virginia trial. She was ordered to pay a compensation of $10.35 million which was later settled for only $1 million. But did you know, the Aquaman star strategically took steps during divorce? Well, the details of it will leave you shell-shocked.

A lot had been said and done during the one-year span that Johnny and Amber remained married. There were accusations of cheating with Elon Musk, a threesome with Cara Delevingne and so much more! On the other hand, the Justice League actress accused him of domestic violence, and verbal abuse amongst other claims.

A report by Animated Times now reveals details that are truly giving us goosebumps. It looks like Amber Heard strategically planned to leave Johnny Deppdestructed. She allegedly filed for divorce citing their official separation day as 17th April 2016. Betty Sue Palmer, JD’s mom, passed away just 2 days prior to that and the actor was facing his worst possible phase.

On the other hand, Amber heard filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp on 27th May 2016. That was again the day Johnny Depp was ideally supposed to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. But unfortunately, his ex-wife stole the thunder.

One refuses to believe that all of this is mere coincidence!

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp denied all the allegations made against him by Amber Heard and termed them “heinous.”

He reacted to them in court and said, “It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, s*xual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one simply has to because it’s gotten out of control. Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal. Cruel and all false.”
