Kanye West employs Elon Musk’s lawyer to take on Gap

Kanye West has reportedly recruited Elon Musk’s lawyer Alex Spiro to represent him in his legal dispute with Gap. West, now known as Ye, and the clothing retailer have been at odds about how much his Yeezy line costs and looks in Gap stores. 

In an Instagram post on Monday, Ye stated he wants Gap to “give me all the clothes they are holding hostage in the office and in the wash houses.” He also referenced Alex Spiro, although he incorrectly spelled his new lawyer’s name as “Spiri.”

Spiro is a partner at Quinn Emanuel and is experienced in the music business, having represented high-profile clients such as Jay-Z and Meek Mill. He will now need to fit Ye in as he helps Elon Musk end his $44 billion deal with Twitter in a trial set to begin on October 17.

Ye ended his collaboration with Gap last week, claiming the business had violated their contract. During an interview on CNBC, he explained, “Everyone knows that I’m the leader, I’m the king. A king can’t live in someone else’s castle. A king has to make his own castle.”
