Ray J May Be Suing Kanye Over The "Famous" Video

Kim's famous ex doesn't appreciate being featured in Kanye's video without consent.

If there's one thing Kanye West is good at, it's pissing people off.

His video for "Famous" - which features nude, wax likenesses of a slew of celebrities - was pretty much designed to court controversy, and Kanye knows it; shortly after the video dropped, he tweeted (and later deleted), "Can somebody sue me already? I'll wait."

Well, it looks like he won't have to wait long at all.

Ray J was one famous face whose likeness was used for Kanye's artistic purposes, and he's not content with just complaining about it online. Ray J's manager David Weintraub said in an interview with Heat Magazine that they're seriously considering taking legal action against 'Ye.

"We're talking about potentially doing something," he said. "There's too many times Kanye has done this. You can't really continue to use people's likenesses without either compensation or clearance."

"The 'Famous' video is like the fourth time in six months Kanye has done this," he continued. "There were discussions, but it's getting old, so our legal team is working out what we want to do with everything."

Watch out, Kanye! Ray J is coming for you, and who knows who'll be next (my money's on Taylor Swift).

Do you think what Kanye does should be protected as artistic expression, or does he need a lesson on consequences?
