Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian Break Silence On Leaked Kanye West Call

Taylor Swift has responded to the 2016 phone call between herself and Kanye West that has leaked online. The phone call features Kanye discussing the lyrics of his song “Famous” with Taylor, but he did not mention to Taylor that the lyrics would include “I made that b*tch famous” in reference to her — which is something that Taylor said he never told her.

Taylor’s response including a link to donate to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kim also responded to the leaked video, calling out Taylor. She wrote via IG,

“.@taylorswift13 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 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.”

Kim continued,

“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*tch’ 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 b*tch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.”

Kim also denied editing the footage, saying that she only “posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.”
