After news emerged that Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce against Kanye West, West himself retaliated by hiring the recently-mothballed hologram of her father as his divorce attorney.
The couple have been married for almost seven years, which in the world of reality TV is actually several lifetimes.
Kanye told reporters, “Robert Kardashian was a great lawyer, and I need a great lawyer. He helped get OJ off, so a lawyer like that can easily handle a simple divorce case.
“Fortunately, I’ve just reanimated him for my own amusement so he’s readily available – and cheap.
“Though I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look forward to making the hologram tell a judge how awful his daughter is.”
Meanwhile, hopes inside the Kardashian house that the divorce could be settled quickly and amicably are fading fast.
One source told us, “Kanye sent Robert’s hologram over the house this morning to tell Kim that he takes back all the nice things he said about her on her birthday.
“Then he went on to say she wasn’t good enough for her husband and that she should probably just stay with him.
“Kim is definitely considering it, though, in the end, it will all come down to whether a divorce will get better ratings than a reconciliation.”
