Kim Kardashian Calls Taylor Swift Out For Drama Surrounding That Kanye Lyric


And the Taylor Swift drama continues!

This time it's not about tall blonde men though, it's about her old pal/enemy Kanye West and that infamous "Famous" lyric.

In an extensive profile for GQ magazine, Kim Kardashian said despite Taylor Swift's claims, the "Shake It Off" singer really did give Kanye approval for that line about her in his song "Famous."

If you'll recall, the line reads,

After the song dropped with The Life of PabloKanye took to Twitter to defend the lyric, claiming he got explicit permission from Taylor to say it and even professing Taylor came up with the line.

Taylor's people quickly responded to this, saying Taylor never gave permission, and in fact warned Kanye away from using misogynistic lyrics.

Then, of course, her Grammys speech was pretty clearly directed at Kanye, when she said,

So who was telling the truth?

Kim Kardashian firmly believes it was her husband, and, according to her, there is even video to prove it. Apparently a videographer was filming while Kanye made the call because Kanye films everything he does for a possible documentary someday. (Side note, really can't wait for that doc!)

Kim told GQ,

Kim went on to say on the phone, Taylor said she planned to tell the media she was in on the joke with Kanye. And, obviously, that's not what happened. Kim said,

According to Kim, Taylor's lawyers later sent a letter demanding the footage of that phone conversation be destroyed and never released to the public.

GQ reached out to Kanye's team for proof of this footage, and while his lawyers confirmed it existed, they did not provide anything else.

The magazine also reached out to Taylor's team for a comment on the footage, and Swift's side claimed Kim was incorrect in her interpretation of the phone call.

In an official statement released to GQ, a representative of Taylor said,

It kind of sounds like both parties might be right, and both Taylor and Kanye just vastly misinterpreted what the other was saying on that call.

But unless we see that footage, I guess we'll never know.
