After it was revealed that Kim Kardashian didn't speak to Kanye West for eight months after she filed for divorce in February 2021, her attorney Laura Wasser has now called out West, discussing how his social media presence has complicated the divorce proceedings.
In an interview Bustle, the 53-year-old lawyer was asked about criticising an ex on social media, at which point it seems that West sprung to her mind.
She said: 'There's no reason that you need to come out publicly and make statements about somebody when you're going through what should be a pretty private thing. I mean, "Hi, Kanye West."'
Of West's actions, She added:'That's probably not the best way to go about things, particularly as a parent.'
In terms of her suggestions for navigating divorce, she insisted that it is best to keep domestic matters off social media.
'Let's give very vanilla stuff over the next however many months, so that it's not raising eyebrows and creating more attention,' she advised.
Updated 13/04/2022: Kim Kardashian says Kanye West was was willing to 'dedicate his life' to being her stylist
Kardashian has revealed that her ex-husband West was willing to trade his music career for one as her full-time stylist.
During the premiere episode of the family's Hulu show The Kardashians, the SKIMS founder said: 'Kanye wants to quit everything and dedicate his life to being my stylist.'
Kardashian, who dedicated her recent Fashion Icon award speech to West during the People's Choice Awards, told her friend this revelation while picking out looks for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig.
This news comes amid Kardashian revealing she didn't speak to West for eight months after she filed for divorce from the rapper in February 2021.
During her appearance on Dear Media's Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, she said: 'We went off and on. You know, we went about eight months without even speaking to each other at the beginning of the divorce. And then we started talking again and I went to the Donda premiere.
'I mean, he would still see the kids and stuff. Him and I just took a minute of not talking. And I think in relationships, it'll be like that. I hope we, you know, are the co-parenting goals at the end of the day.'
Kardashian continued: 'I look back and my mum and dad went through their hard time and it took people a minute to readjust.
'And I've seen it all before, I think we just have a different kind of platform now. But you know, it doesn't mean that maybe because he expressed himself in a certain way that he's not an amazing person and amazing friend. I do believe that we'll have that again. I'm always really hopeful.'
She maintained that her and West still 'have so much love for each other', saying: 'We're always family, we're always going to have so much love and we love our kids.
'We both love the time we spent together. You know, I think that we'll always have that and always cherish that. Sometimes it just doesn't work out for whatever reasons, but no matter what, I always just think of like the positive times.
Referring to West's public outbursts about her romance with Pete Davidson, she went on to say: 'If you were in a situation and you were hurting and that was your way of expressing yourself, like I don't judge.'
Of her current dynamic with her ex: 'Right now, it's good,' she said. 'When things are calm, we don't really communicate. But I think that's okay sometimes, you know.
'And I think that we will. We always will. That's just who I am. I spent a decade of my life with this person and I just have so much love for him. So that'll never change, but it doesn't mean that they're the right one for you and that's okay too."

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star discussed her approach to talking about her divorce with their four children, North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, two.
'You have to just be there for them,' she said of her children. 'No matter what, even in this crazy life that we live, you just have to have a really open dialogue with your children.'
She continued: 'Kanye and I have had conversations.
'We have to talk daily for the kids so you know, I hate that it had to play out like that. But when it comes to family, I mean, Kanye and I will always be family.'

Updated 03/03/2022: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's marriage is officially dissolved
According to Rolling Stone, Kardashian appeared at the hearing virtually on March 2 while West was absent, with his lawyer appearing in his place. When asked whether 'counselling, additional time or assistance of the court' would save her marriage, Kardashian responded 'no', and confirmed her desire to be 'restored to the status of a single person'. There was no opposition to her petition, and so the request was granted.
While West has not yet commented on the news, he has released a new music video for his song 'Eazy' in which he appears to be burying a cartoon man, which seemingly resembles Pete Davidson (Kardashian's rumoured boyfriend), alive. The song also features the lyric: 'God saved me from the crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass'.
Updated 25/02/2022: Kim Kardashian requests to have her divorce terminated as soon as possible
Kim Kardashian recently defended her current boyfriend Pete Davidson against her estranged husband Kanye West, following his public criticism of the comedian. This came by way of leaked messages sent from the SKIMS founder to the rapper, which he then publicised on social media.
Now - after Kardashian questioned West's decision to broadcast their private communications on his Instagram account - she has requested via a court document to have her marriage to West terminated rapidly, as a result of the 'emotional distress' she's faced due to the rapper's public moves, per NBC.
The statement obtained by the news outlet begins: 'I very much desire to be divorced. I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so.
'Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private family matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress. I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children.'
The request supposedly continued: 'While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realisation that there is no way to repair our marriage. Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realisation that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not. I ask that the court restore me to the status of a single person so that I can begin the healing process and so that our family can begin the healing process and move forward in this new chapter in our lives.'
A spokesperson for Kardashian and a spokesperson for Ye did not immediately respond to NBC News' request for comment.
Prior to this, we learned that the reality star reportedly asked the court to be made legally single, which West's lawyers asked the court to deny.
A hearing is due to take place on March 2.
Updated 15/02/2022: Kanye West reportedly shares screenshots of messages from Kim Kardashian
After Kim Kardashian seemingly explained that choosing to put herself first 'caused' her and Kanye West's divorce, West shared a collage of family photos of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and their four kids on his Instagram account. He wrote an accompanying caption that read: 'God please bring our family back together.'
In the days since his post, the Daily Mail has reported that West publicly shared a series of texts sent by his estranged wife to him on social media. The messages seemingly convey the entrepreneur's wishes for West to stop putting her current rumoured boyfriend, Pete Davidson, in danger with his comments about the comedian.
The rapper, who recently split from actor Julia Fox, reportedly took to Instagram to share a message on Monday, February 14, which appears to have read: 'Upon my wife's request please nobody do anything physical to skete im going to handle the situation myself [sic].'
In the reported texts sent from the SKIMS founder, which West shared screenshots of, Kardashian said West was 'creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault'.
'There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn't have to be,' she seemingly added.
The 'New Again' rapper appears to have replied: 'I will always do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete.'
In a following post, Kardashian appeared to ask the father of her four children why he couldn't keep any of their conversations private, leading him to seemingly show his affection for her yet again when writing: 'Cause I got a text from my favourite person in the world.
'I'm your number one fan. Why wouldn't I tell everyone!!!!'
The same news outlet reported that Davidson had also texted West: '... you as a man I'd never get in the way of your children. That's a promise. How you guys go about raising your kids is your business and not mine. I do hope [some] day I can meet them and we can all be friends'.
West's recent sentiment about Kardashian isn't the only way he's shown his affection for her as of late. He also shared an image on his Instagram account to show his grand gesture to her on Valentine's Day.
The photo, which he tagged the reality star in, showed a personalised black truck that spelt out the phrase: 'My vision is krystal klear.' The truck came with dozens of roses.
Prior to this gesture, West commented on the coat Kardashian wore on a date with Davidson, which he bought the aspiring lawyer for a reported $23,000 (£17,000).
He wrote: 'I bought this coat for Kim before SNL I though it was particularly special I have faith that we'll get back together [sic].'

Original story 19/02/21: Kim Kardashian Files For Divorce From Kanye West
After months of mounting rumours, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West, according to multiple reports.
The couple - entrenched in 2010s celebrity culture by way of PDA-filled music videos, high-profile public appearances on red carpets and the fan nickname 'Kimye' - have had one of the most recognisable and high-profile unions in the world, and married seven years ago in Italy.
According to TMZ, Kardashian filed for divorce through her lawyer Laura Wasser (a well known celebrity divorce lawyer, dubbed the 'disso queen' by the celebrity news outlet), who also represented Kardashian in her divorce from athlete Kris Humphries. Neither Kardashian nor West have commented publicly on the reports.
The split is said to be amicable and the divorce will honour an existing prenuptial agreement. According to the Reuters news service, representatives for Kardashian have confirmed the reports as have representatives for the Los Angeles Superior Court.
Kardashian is seeking joint custody over the couple's four children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, the reports claim.
Reports of a divorce follow months of rumours and tabloid speculation over the state of the couple's marriage. Last year, in the run up to the US election, West embarked on a 'presidential campaign' and appeared emotional at a rally during which he spoke about very personal matters to do with his family and marriage, before sharing concerning statements on Twitter.
After Kardashian took to Instagram pleading with followers to show West compassion amid his ongoing struggle with Bipolar Disorder, West thanked his wife for 'always being there for him' and apologised to her publicly on the platform. According to the NHS, Bipolar Disorder is a mental health condition that affects your moods and can involve episodes of depression and mania.
After meeting in the early Noughties and forging a friendship (documented on the mother-of-four's family reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians), West and Kardashian elevated their connection to a romantic relationship in 2012, welcoming their first daughter North together a year later and marrying in a celebrity-filled wedding in 2014, at which the bride wore a custom Givenchy bridal gown.
