As public opinion of Taylor Swift reaches an all-time high, details have been published of a legal letter she reportedly sent to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, after learning they’d filmed a private phone conversation with her.
In the early hours of Monday morning (18 July), Kim backed up her claim that Kanye had consulted Taylor before name-checking her in his track, ‘Famous’, by publishing recorded snippets of their conversation, on her Snapchat story.
It has now been reported by TMZ that, upon learning Kim had secretly filmed the exchange months ago, Taylor’s attorney sent the reality star a letter, urging her to delete the footage.
This supports what Kim said during an interview with GQ last month, where she suggested that her last contact with Taylor had been a cease and desist letter the ‘Bad Blood’ singer sent upon learning the recordings existed.
According to TMZ, the letter in question read: “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.”
The website also points out that Taylor has grounds to sue the couple, as it is illegal to secretly record a phone conversation in the State of California.
During the recordings, Taylor is heard telling Kanye: “The heads up is so nice. Even asking or seeing if I would be OK with it... I just really appreciate it. Like, I would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs.”
The conversation relates to his song ‘Famous’, which opens with the line: “To all my south-side n*****s who know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”
