Hi rgb192,

whatsapp fetches all contact from your device "Contact" app. Their you might have multiple gmail account synced.
First you need to delete any account which you not need in whatsapp from your Contacts -> More -> Accounts
And then see your whatsapp contact. This way you can disconnect one account for whatsapp.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi rgb192,

Three possible way
1. uninstall and re-install  whatsapp
2. Android privacy in settings, enable/disable contact for whatsapp
3. In contacts app disable 'accounts'-auto sync app data.

Which Android device and which version of android install on your device?

Thanks & Regards,

This is not as simple as just remove/replacing your Gmail accounts as it is linked to everything.
Better to simply delete it then if you want create a new with a new Gmail or new alternative email address.
They require a legitimate email address for the purposes of the linked apps included with Whatsapp.

WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family
To change your email id or email address you would need to use your ISP?  
Or create a new Gmail account?
