Twitter exploded Sunday night after Kim Kardashian West posted snapchat footage of a phone call between Kanye West and Taylor Swift that supposedly shows Swift approving the controversial lyrics in West’s song “Famous”. This was in response to a post by Swift accusing West of not reaching out to her before the song was released.
Time released a transcript of the phone call where Swift clearly states “I really appreciate you telling me, that’s really nice.”
The hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty was still trending Monday afternoon, after other celebs had tweeted in defense of Kardashian West.
However Kim and Kanye aren’t in the clear yet, as California (the state the couple were supposedly in when the phone call took place) is a two party consent state, meaning both sides of the call need to be aware that the conversation is being recorded. Swift claims she was not told there were cameras.
According to TMZ, Swift and her team knew about the recording as far back as February, even going so far as to send West a warning that he was breaking the law, and asking him to erase the recording.
The legal letter reads “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.”
Even though Swift lied about being reached out to, she still has the right to press charges against Kardashian West for posting the illegal video.
The video has been removed several times due to the illegal nature of it’s recording.
