The years-old Kanye West–Taylor Swift rift just detonated with family members and reps taking sides and sparring on social media
In recent days, a new video clip of a four-year-old conversation between pair about Kanye’s song “Famous” hit the web. The leaked 25-minute phone call seemed to support the pop superstar’s claims all along, that she was never asked about being called a «b—-» in Ye’s song.
Now, West’s wife Kim Kardashian has stepped into the fray. The reality TV posted a batch of tweets overnight in which she defends her husband and repeatedly calls the “Bad Blood” singer a liar.
Tagging Swift’s handle, Kardashian says the singer 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.»
Getting into the swing of things, Kardashian continues: “I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right 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.»
And in another: «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. Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission.”
