It looks like Taylor Swift won’t be able to sue
Kanye West anytime soon, due to the laws in
California. After Kim Kardashian leaked the secret
recording between Taylor and her husband Kanye
West on Sunday night where Taylor agreed to the
controversial “Famous” lyrics.
Taylor Swift reacted by saying that her character
assassinated by the Wests and that she was
going to sue them.
However, according to TMZ:
“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.”
We’ve heard the full tape … and 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.
There’s no doubt listening to the full tape
… Taylor knew she was being overheard.
As a result, it’s pretty clear … Kanye
didn’t violate the law by recording it.
So because there were other people in the room,
she has no case that she was secretly recorded.
End of case.
