Taylor’s lawyer threatened Kanye with prosecution for taping his phone call with her, informing her about his lyrics to “Famous.” But according to reports, the Wests will not face criminal prosecution for the secret recording.
In California, if someone records a “confidential communication” and the other party to the conversation doesn’t know it’s being taped, it’s a crime. But “confidential communication” does not include conversations that “may be overheard,” and we all saw legendary producer Rick Rubin listening in to the tea.
Members of the crew filming Kanye on the call were also heard speaking in the room. Ultimately, Taylor knew she was being overheard, therefore no criminal charges can take place.
