Kim Kardashian West Accuses Taylor Swift Of Lying
Kim Kardashian West said late Monday she is “really embarrassed and mortified” to be responding to comments by Taylor Swift in the midst of a global pandemic but has to “because she is actually lying.”
Last weekend, a leaked recording of a phone conversation between Swift and Kanye West seemed to support Swift’s assertion that she didn’t approve of being called a “b**ch” on West’s track “Famous.” She publicly objected to the lyric when the song was released in 2016, prompting Kardashian West to share a clip of the phone call which she claimed proved Swift approved of it.
In an Instagram Story, Swift directed fans to a charity website “instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that 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)…”
Kardashian West responded in a Twitter thread in which she said 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.”
The reality show star tweeted: “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.”
Kardashian West went to say that when Swift spoke to her rap star husband the track “Famous” was not completed “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.’”
Kardashian West called Swift’s allegation that the footage was edited “another lie.”
In one final defence of her husband, she wrote: “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.”
Kardashian West added: “This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares.
“I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.”
