The fight between Taylor Swift and Kanye/ Kim Kardashian is set to a take one step further as the ‘Bad blood’ singer has met her legal representatives and is considering taking legal action against Kanye West and his wife Kim after Kim released a bombshell phone recording that proved the rapper had asked the Shake It Off singer permission to release the controversial song Famous.
In the track, Kanye raps: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that b**** famous.”
During the cordial phonecall Taylor, 26, appears to be supportive of the track, describing Kanye as a “friend” and saying the song is “like a compliment” and “obviously very tongue in cheek”.
But according to an exclusive report by the Sun UK, Taylor has consulted her legal representatives and plans to take legal action against Kanye and Kim K that could land them with 3 years imprisonment if they are charged, because in California where Kanye made the call from, it is illegal to record a phone conversation without the other person’s knowledge and permission and make it public.
Taylor’s legal team is convinced Kanye and Kim have violated California penal code 632 that makes it illegal to record calls without permission from both sides.
Taylor’s lawyers earlier warned Kanye that she did not give consent to the recording and insisted she was not aware the call was being taped, warning him to destroy such recording, but the rapper’s wife Kim released the video recording on Snapchat on Sunday.
A source revealed: “Taylor’s team believe that Kanye and Kim have quite clearly broken the law.
“They are on a mission to destroy Taylor but there could be serious consequences because they made the phone call from California where it is illegal to tape calls without permission.
“They didn’t ask permission from Taylor and that could be considered a felony where the offenders can be jailed for up to three years.”
Taylor responded on Instagram saying: “You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b****’ in front of the entire world.”
”Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened.”
“Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard.
“Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination.
“I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”
