Taylor Swift and Kanye West have been famously feuding since the infamous “Imma let you finish” moment at the MTV VMAs, but the beef appeared to be squashed after Kanye sent the singer flowers during her 1989 world tour. A few months ago, the feud was reignited when Ye release the song “Famous” with the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous.” In the press, Swift seemed sort of bent out of shape about Kanye’s claim, but according to Kim Kardashian, the singer was in on it the whole time.
In an interview with GQ, Kardashian claims that Swift knew “Famous” was coming out and “totally approved the line,” then turned around and played the victim to make Kanye look bad. In fact, Kardashian insists she has video proof of Swifty admitting it.
“She totally knew that [“Famous”] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t,” said the reality TV star. “I swear, my husband gets so much s–t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved. What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval? Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew.”
According to Kardashian, Swift joked about how the paps would act after the song came out and said “When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.'”
Kardashian then noted that Swift ended up using her speech during the 2016 Grammys to diss Ye for the lyrics she pre-approved and that the couple haven’t spoke to her since except “maybe an attorney’s letter [Swift] sent saying, ‘Don’t ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.'”
Yikes. Do you think Swifty is really this sketchy? It sounds pretty shady if you ask us, but Swift’s reps deny the claim. In 2015, Kanye said he was collaborating with Swift, could this have been what he meant?
