    The attorneys added that besides notifying West via "alternative means", they will no longer represent him, they would publish a court order issued by a judge permitting the severance of the professional relationship.
    The attorneys added that the ad idea is a last resort, as they were trying to get a hold of West about this matter, but he has been unresponsive.
    Publishing the statement in a newspaper would "likely garner significant media attention, resulting in broader publication," the lawyers said.

    The news comes as the rapper wed 27-year-old architect Bianca Censori last week, having completed his divorce from media personality Kim Kardashian back in November.
    According to the report, West and Censori got married in a private ceremony, while the rapper’s former wife was celebrating the fifth birthday of the couple's son. Despite appearing apathetic to rumors of West’s new marriage, people close to Kardashian say it really bothers her.
