Well, he might just get exactly what he asked for.
Ray J’s manager, David Weintraub, told Heat magazine that the singer/TV personality is considering taking legal action over the “Famous” visual for including Ray J’s naked likeness.
“We’re talking about potentially doing something,” Weintraub told Heat. “There’s too many times Kanye has done this. You can’t really continue to use people’s likenesses 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.”
Less than a week after the “Famous” visuals premiered, Weintraub shared some pretty harsh words about Kanye and the project: “If they didn’t show Ray J with his dick in Kim Kardashian’s mouth, then tell Kanye to go back and reshoot that shit,” he told TMZ. “Tell that n*gga he’s a long way from Chicago, he’d better watch his motherfucking mouth.”
Ray J also responded to the video, insisting he was “just trying to stay positive.” But he also told Entertainment Tonight that his fiancé was “tripping” about his depiction, and that it’s taken a toll on their relationship.
So, will Ray J slap West with a lawsuit? He definitely has a case, but we’ll just have to stay tuned
