Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian reignite an old feud

This past weekend Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s 2016 phone call about the song “Famous” leaked.

In 2016, Kanye West released the track “Famous,” featuring the lines, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”

After the song came out, Kanye West tweeted that he had had a conversation with Taylor during which Swift had approved of the lyric. Tree Paine, Taylor Swift’s publicist, denied the claim saying, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account.” She also stated that “that bitch” was never a part of the conversation.

Kim Kardashian West, Kanye’s wife, and publicist seemed to understand the comment not as “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask about a tweet” but as “Kanye did not call.” In July, Kim released part of the phone call on Snapchat. The exchange sounded as though Taylor Swift gave a kind of “you do you” approval for West’s line about having sex in “Famous.”

Things went ugly but then again, Taylor’s claim became clear because this past weekend, someone leaked the entire phonecall.

Now things that had settled down were stirred up again after the video was leaked. And although Swift didn’t even refer to it, but gave a passing mention in her own way, she did hint at the fact that she had been telling the truth this entire time.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Swift posted, “Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about video footage that was leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years),” the singer wrote. “Swipe up to see what really matters.”

Swiping up led her followers to a donation page for the organization Feeding America.
Hours later, Kim Kardashian struck back at Swift.

“Taylor Swift has chosen to reignite an old exchange – that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now.”

“I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to comment now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying,” she added further.
Kim goes o to explain the situation in its entirety. “To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission.’ They clearly spoke so I let you all see that.”

Kim also added that at the time the two spoke, the song’s lyrics weren’t fully written, something that didn’t really go down well with the followers.

Kim tried and cleared the situation for Kayne and Swift’s fans and ended the series of tweets saying that this might be the last time she would speak on it.
