Us quoted a source, as saying, "Taylor's team believes that Kanye and Kim have quite clearly broken the law.

In the track 'Famous,' which also features Rihanna, the 'Mercy' hit-maker is hear rapping: 'I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that b*tch famous."
However, previously it was reported that the 38-year-old rapper, denied the accusation that he dissed Taylor in his latest album `The Life Of Pablo,' saying that they had an hour-long talk on the phone and she found the lyrics were funny and had no problem with him releasing the track.
