Ye filed the documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on May 20, informing the court he was swapping out his former attorneys, London D. Meservy and Justin Morello, for a flashy Beverly Hills legal representative.

We can reveal that Ye hired Brian Brumfield of The Brumfield Law Group to take on Tony Saxon, who sued Kim Kardashian's ex in September 2023 for alleged discrimination, violations of the labor code, and retaliation.

Saxon said he complained several times about the working conditions and hazards around the home — including not having safety equipment despite workers demolishing the property — but Ye "took no action."

He said he injured his back and informed the musician he needed time off, but Ye reportedly "continued to insist on having updates on the house." Saxon claimed one of the more dangerous jobs Ye insisted on was removing "all the electricity and windows from the home."

While he allegedly voiced his concerns to the superstar, he claimed Ye "persisted, raising his voice, and insisting on moving large generators inside the house, which could potentially lead to a fire hazard." Saxon alleged that Ye "threatened" him when he expressed his worry over the project. Saxon claimed he was fired for not complying with West's request and sued him in excess of $1 million in damages.

But the rapper hit back, asking that all of Saxon's claims be thrown out.

The case is still ongoing.
