Dr Dre has to get a new lawyer in his divorce case.
A judge has ruled that power divorce attorney Laura Wasser — and Dre’s lawyer Howard King — cannot represent him in his blockbuster split from estranged wife Nicole Young.
Wasser is known as one of LA’s biggest divorce attorneys, repping clients including Kim Kardashian.
But Nicole Young and her attorney argued in court papers that King had previously repped Dre and Young throughout their marriage. Wasser was “vicariously disqualified” from repping the rap mogul because she was working with King.
Young’s lawyer, Samantha Spector, had been trying to disqualify King and Wasser from the case, since Young claimed King had acted as she and Dre’s family lawyer since the couple was engaged.
The move is a major victory for Nicole and Spector — another of Tinsletown’s biggest legal names, who often faces off against Wasser.
