It is reported that Taylor Swift’s representatives have made Kim K and Kanye West aware of the fact that the singer did not give permission for them to record their phone conversation.
The California penal code number 632 states that it is illegal to record calls without permission from both participants.
This means that if the couple are found guilty, they could face up to three years in jail.
A source close to Swift said that: ‘Taylor’s team believe that Kanye and Kim have quite clearly broken the law.’
‘They are on a mission to destroy Taylor but there could be serious consequences because they made the phone call from California where it is illegal to tape calls without permission,’ the source told The Sun.
‘They didn’t ask permission from Taylor and that could be considered a felony where the offenders can be jailed for up to three years.’
TMZ revealed that Taylor’s lawyers threatened Kim and Kanye with criminal prosecutions months ago after the secret recording was released.
The letter sent from Taylor’s attorney to Kanye’s allegedly 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.’
It all started on Monday morning when Kim released a video of Kanye West on the phone, reciting the lyrics to his song Famous to Tay, and her giving permission to use her name.
Swift can be heard telling the rapper: ‘I mean go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way.’
The hit-singer however replied, stating that she never gave permission for the phrase ‘that b**ch’ to be used – which is true as Kayne only reads the line: ‘For all my southside n***** that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.’
However Kim and Kanye’s revelation led to many bombarding Taylor with comments that she was ‘over’ and social media users calling her a snake.
She later posted a picture on Instagram, defending herself and saying that she wanted to be ‘excluded from this narrative’.
