Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has slammed singer Taylor Swift in a social media rant.
The Keeping Up With The Kardasian’s star, 39 took to Twitter to share a series of angry comments accusing the ‘Shake It Off’ singer of lying. Kim branded Taylor a ‘liar’ after the singer insisted that the newly leaked audio of her infamous phone call with Kanye West in relation to his song ‘Famous’ proves that she was ‘framed’ all along.
Over four years ago, back in 2016, Kanye and Taylor got into a huge social media spat after the rapper, 42, used to lyrics “I made that bi**h famous”, while referring to Swift.
Despite the fact that Kim Kardashian’s husband insisted that he had asked the 30-year-old’s permission to use her name in the song, Taylor denied the claims and instead, branded Kanye and his music ‘misogynistic’. Adding fuel to the already flaming fire, the full conversation between Kanye and Taylor was leaked over the weekend, causing both parties to voice their sides of the story once again.
The video suggested that Kim and Kanye may have lied about the contents of the call and Taylor has been justified in her view point. Kim decided that she wanted one last chance to set the record straight and launched a string of abuse at the Bad Blood singer in an attempt to defend herself and her husband. The reality TV sensation started off her rant by calling out Taylor for digging up dirt while there are millions of people suffering and dying across the globe due to the deadly outbreak of the coronavirus .
“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. Makeup mogul Kim went on to insist that she felt embarrassed and mortified to have to discuss the situation ‘yet again’. 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”.
The mother-of-four continued on her Twitter rant to share that lies were perpetuated about a number of issues surrounding the phone call. She added: “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 ‘b**ch’ was used without her permission. At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she ‘declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.”
Kim finished off her defensive thread by addressing the claim that she had purposely edited footage of the phone call in a bid to make Taylor look like the bad guy.
Kim wrote: “I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips. The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.”
“To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary. Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption & the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied & forced me to defend him”.
Kim finished off by insisting that this will be the last time she ever speaks about the conversation again.
“This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares. Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters”. Taylor has yet to come back and share her two-sense on the matter, but fans are eagerly waiting.
