Ray J is considering legal action against Kanye West over his ‘Famous’ video.
The 39-year-old rapper sparked outrage when he dropped the controversial music promo, which features wax lookalikes of the singer – who previously dated and infamously appeared in a sex tape with Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West – as well as Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, former US president George W Bush, singer Chris Brown, and his own ex-girlfriend Amber Rose in bed with him and his spouse, on June 24.
And Ray is furious about being depicted in the video and is considering making a bid for “compensation”.
His business manager, David Weintraub, told heat magazine: “We’re talking about potentially doing something.
“Because there’s too many times Kanye has done this, and you can’t really continue to use people’s likeness without either compensation or clearance.
“It seems to be becoming an issue – this is like the fourth time in six months he’s done this.
“We haven’t really worked anything out. There were kind of discussions but it’s getting old, so our legal team is working out what we want to do with everything”
However, the ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker doesn’t seem fazed by the backlash he’s received and recently challenged everyone featured in the video to try and sue him.
He wrote on Twitter: “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait (sic).”
Meanwhile, it’s believed Taylor, who has locked horns with Kanye in the past, is “horrified” the rapper has included a naked doppelganger of her after she previously lashed out at him when he referenced having sex with her in the lyrics.
A source said previously: “Taylor is livid and horrified. She didn’t know what to do when she heard about what Kanye did. She is bewildered, feels betrayed and is beyond frustrated with Kanye. It is like a complete nightmare.”
