Does Rick Rubin Affect Taylor Swift's Ability to Sue Kanye West?

"While Taylor Swift may be well within her legal rights to sue Kanye", Ms Parker told The Independent via email, "the public relations implications may be more unsafe".

"Nicole Simpson lost her life".

It's on between Kimye and Taylor Swift!

The line that appears on the final version of the song is "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why?"

The law varies by state, and in California, it's illegal to record someone if they don't know they are being recorded, unless it's reasonable for them to assume the conversation is being overheard.

"Under California law recording a confidential communication only becomes a crime if there is no possibility that the caller could have been overheard".

Cambria explained that California has a "two consent rule" meaning that both parties involved in a conversation must give consent to be recorded as long as one of the parties is in California. The conversation from Kanye's end was on speaker phone, and during the call producer Rick Rubin speaks up several times. The outlet also posits that members of West's crew who were filming can be heard in the background as well. She also accuses Kanye and Kim of "character assassination". Fast-forward to 2016 and Kim Kardashian's hubby has hatched a full-blown music video of his infamous "Famous" rap song which includes, among other celebrities, a stark naked image in Taylor Swift's likeness.

Taylor Swift has not had the best PR month. One salient point, according to the source, is that "Consent is something that is ongoing throughout any sexual encounter and can be renegotiated at any time".

As #KimExposedTaylorParty trended on Twitter and having previously denied approving such lyrics, Taylor tweeted a statement to tell her side of the story saying she never approved her being called a "b***h" accompanied with: "That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet". To date, no such renegotiation can be found.
