The tale escalates further...
Taylor Swift reportedly threatened Kanye West with legal action “months ago” following the release of Famous, a song in which he refers to Taylor as “that b***h”.
The pop songstress’ lawyer sent a letter to West in February making it clear that, under California law, secretly recording a phone conversation with someone in the state is a criminal offense, TMZ reports.
"Demand is hereby made that you immediately destroy all such recordings, provide us of assurance that this has been done, and also assurance that these recordings have not been previously disseminated,” TMZ reports the letter reads.
On Sunday Kim Kardashian, West’s wife, posted a video to Snapchat that seemingly shows Taylor approving the lyrics.
The song, which now has a music video that features a naked body double of Taylor, includes the lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**ch famous.”
Taylor’s spokesperson responded to the lyrics at the time pf the song's release, denying the Bad Blood singer knew anything about the lyric and was never contacted by West to approve it.
The two singers have been linked ever since West interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the 2009 VMAs.
