Taylor Swift just has to sit back and take it …
Taylor Swift won’t be filing charges against Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for secretly recording and leaking her phone call with “Yeezy” — because it appears as though Tay had NO expectation of privacy.
TMZ reported that Taylor’s lawyer threatened Kanye with prosecution for taping the now-infamous call and the outlet reported that Taylor has been considering filing a police report. But here’s the thing: if someone records a “confidential communication” in California and the other person in the conversation doesn’t know that they are being taped, it’s a crime. However, “confidential communication” does not include conversations that “may be overheard” — which Taylor knew.
Tay knew that the convo with Kanye was on speaker phone because Rick Rubin spoke up several times. In addition, there are a number of Kanye’s crew who can be heard speaking during the call — which means that Taylor was aware others were listening in — which means Kanye didn’t violate the law by recording the conversation. But he definitely skated by the law on some majorly thin ice.
Many are taking sides over the controversy, including Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” director, Joseph Kahn, who tweeted some shocking comments in an attempt to defend the singer during her feud with Kimye.Kahn launched attacked the Kardashians on Twitter, comparing the couple’s Internet attack on the pop star to Robert Kardashian’s involvement in family friend Nicole Brown Simpson’s murder trial during in the 1990s.
The director wrote, “Ain’t the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman.”
Kahn pushed the boundaries even further when she wrote, “People always ask me how to be famous. My answer is simple. Have your dad defend murder of a woman. Release sex tape. That’s it. Good luck.”
But Kahn wasn’t the only one going for the Kardashian’s jugular. Taylor Swift’s bestie Abigail Anderson took a major swipe at the couple when she tweeted some majorly passive aggressive comments. The BFF wrote (and then deleted) “Lord, hear my prayers. … I pray God helps your daughter understand, that despite how many times she’ll hear daddy reference all women as ‘b*tches,’ she isn’t one.”
“I pray she understands her father actually IS faithful to her mother, despite all the adulterous comments she will hear her father making. … I pray that she will understand ‘adultery and bitches’ are just daddy’s form of art and not to worry because not every man thinks like him. … Lastly, I pray for forgiveness. May God forgive you your wife for doing to others the very things you pray are NEVER done to your daughter.”
No wonder she deleted those tweets — they’re nuts!
