Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian can breathe a sigh of relief as reports claim they no longer have to worry about legal action for leaking a private conversation with country singer Taylor Swift.
According to reports, KimYe will likely not be prosecuted because Swift knew about the filming happening.
Here’s the problem … in California, if someone records a “confidential communication” and the other party to the conversation doesn’t know it’s being taped, it’s a crime. But “confidential communication” does not include conversations that “may be overheard.” Taylor knew she was overheard. The conversation from Kanye’s end was on speaker phone, and during the call producer Rick Rubin speaks up several times. Members of the crew filming Kanye on the call also speak in the room. (TMZ)
Swift went to Twitter a couple nights ago and addressed Kim K trying to expose her secret chat with Yeezy about “Famous.”
Sunday (July 17) night, Kim K went to Snapchat and exposed Swift giving Yeezy her approval to name-drop her on “Famous.”
A few days ago, Kim K defended calling out Swift in a recent GQ interview and said she felt the need to publicly speak out.
“I never talk sh*t about anyone publicly, especially in interviews but I was just, like, I so had it. I just felt like I wanted to defend [Kanye] in it because it’s like, she legitimately, quote says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet I’m gonna tell all the press. Like I was in on it.’ [It was] just another way to play the victim. It definitely got her a lot of attention the first time. I just don’t think he should be punished for it still to this day.” (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians”)
