Kanye West hires Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasques to handle his business interests
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.com whether 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 West called 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.
‘The motherf****r is a master manipulator.’
Happier times: 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 (Pete and Kim pictured in May)
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.
Oh dear: 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?’
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.
Wow: Branding Kanye a ‘master manipulator’ Charlamagne said: ‘What am I supposed to do but laugh at that.’
‘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.’
Here we go! Back in March, Pete addressed Kanye ‘s never-ending social media attacks aimed at his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, and her parenting choices in a text exchange shared to Dave Sirus’ account
‘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.’
Talk about it: The comedian, 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
‘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.’
Davidson didn’t miss a beat as he texted West: ‘In bed with your wife’
‘What you are doing to your family is dangerous and going to scar them for life,’ Pete told Kanye. ‘Please handle these matters privately bro I beg you’
‘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.’
‘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’

Locked lips: They met just months before in October when she was hosting Saturday Night Live and even shared their first kiss in front of millions of viewers during an Aladdin and Jasmin-themed sketch
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.’
