The phone call showed Swift seemingly enthusing over the line in Kanye West’s song ‘Famous’ in which the rapper says: “Feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex.” Swift had previously claimed to have not known about the song’s lyrics prior to its release, leading to some internet users posting the snake emoji on her Instagram account and Wikipedia page. However, West doesn’t state in the phone call that the following lyric will be: “Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Amid the controversy, Harris attended the 47th birthday party of Jennifer Lopez on Sunday (July 24) where he was pictured with Kardashian. The picture was uploaded by fellow guest French Montana. Fans have speculated over the pair being pictured together, with one writing: “OMG Calvin is on Kim’s side”.
Harris also uploaded a video of himself and J-Lo at the party, writing in an Instagram caption: “Happy birthday Jennifer Lopez, legendary icon – and your show in Vegas is next level”.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that Swift can’t sue West and Kardashian over the leaked phone call.
Despite the call seemingly leaking without Swift’s permission, it has emerged that local California privacy laws mean that Swift will be unable to take any action against West or his wife.
Swift appeared unaware that her conversation with West was being taped, and California law states that releasing “confidential communication” online is illegal. However, that law does not apply if the conversation “may be overheard” – and the full conversation between West and Swift sees other parties, including leading producer Rick Rubin join the couple’s discussions.
