Los Angeles - Ray J is considering legal action against Kanye West over the rapper's 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 24 June.

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)."
