Kanye West leans on Elon Musk's legal camp to "have Gap give me all of the clothes"

Los Angeles, California - It looks like Kanye "Ye" West is following in Elon Musk's footsteps in terms of legal counsel for his ongoing battle with Gap.

Ye is using his Instagram to once again air out his grievances for the world to see. On Monday, the rapper turned fashion designer made it clear he's still pretty pressed about his strained partnership with Gap.

In a series of Instagram stories, Ye posted several screenshots of text messages, but one group text in particular stood out.

In a message to six other people, Ye wrote: "Have gap give me all of the clothes that they are holding hostage in the office and in the wash house."

In a follow-up text, the 45-year-old said, "Leo, the number you didn't recognize was Adam Spiri Google him. Remember I said you're on my good side : ) currently."

Though Ye wrote "Alex Spiri" in the message, sources told the New York Post that West had hired Musk's lawyer, Alex Spiro, to help him with his legal battle with Gap.

The Yeezy founder moved to terminate his partnership with the fashion chain last week, citing the company had failed to live up to its end of the deal.

In an appearance on CNBC's Closing Bell last Thursday, Ye confirmed the contract had been terminated.

"It was always a dream of mine to be at the Gap and to bring the best product possible," West said before ultimately concluding that "our agenda, it wasn’t aligned."

According to Ye, he wasn't able to set the prices for the Yeezy Gap products, and that he didn't approve of color selections.

It's unclear how exactly Spiro will be helping Ye or when he'll have the time to as he gears up for Musk's October trial against Twitter.
