Vasquez’s selection in the aftermath of West’s recent scandals drew much criticism. Earlier this month, the Donda founder was chastised for wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt to the Yeezy presentation during Paris Fashion Week. Soon after, he made many anti-Semitic statements on social media, prompting the suspension of his Instagram and Twitter accounts.

“Balenciaga no longer has any affiliation with this artist, nor any intentions for future collaborations including this artist.”

West also had a falling out with Gap and ended his contract with the company before Paris Fashion Week, while also criticizing Adidas. Needless to say, the rapper hired a legal team, including Camille Vasquez, to investigate his company in the midst of his continuous problems. Vasquez rose to prominence after defending Johnny Depp in his defamation action against Amber Heard. The lawyer was a social media phenomenon after playing a significant part in Depp’s triumph.
