People magazine is reporting potential legal action by Taylor Swift against Kanye West. The feud is over a phone call between the two musicians in January of this year that was recorded without Swift’s knowledge, a clip of the video was released recently by Kim Kardashian. In the video, posted to Kardashian’s Snapchat, Kanye is allegedly getting permission for mentioning her in his song “Famous.”
Considering the two-part consent law in California, it is illegal for someone to record a conversation without the other party knowing and Swift reportedly threatened West with criminal prosecution in February unless the video was destroyed.
Swift has taken to social media, rallying against never approving the line where she was referred to as a “bitch” and calling it character assassination.
West’s camp claims that he films his entire process but the legal issue will most likely lie in the video’s recent release after Swift’s previous legal threats.
