Taylor Swift Responds to Kim Kardashian Leaking Alleged Conversation with Kanye West

Taylor Swift seemingly still cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.

The "Blank Space" singer has responded to Kim Kardashian leaking snippets of a phone call Taylor had with Kanye West on Snapchat, which showed the two discussing her namedrop of his song, "Famous." Apparently, Taylor's issue is being called "that b*tch."

That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened," Taylor claims. "You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called 'that bitch' in front of the entire world."

"Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did," she continues. "While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot 'approve' a song you haven't heard."

"Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination," she concludes. "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009."

2009 was the year Kanye infamously stormed the stage at the MTV Music Awards and was really happy for Taylor and was gonna let her finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time -- i.e. the way he "made that b*tch famous," as referenced on The Life of Pablo.

Kim became involved in Taylor and Kanye's reignited feud when she told GQ magazine last month that Taylor "totally knew" about the song. "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," Kim said before revealing that a video recording of the phone conversation existed.

And she sings on a little bit of it too 🙃 Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual https://t.co/vW3yGOIJit
I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym
Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though 🤔
I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do
I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it
Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one
God bless everyone have a beautiful day

Taylor's rep released a lengthy statement at the time that made many of the same points the singer also makes in her statement, acknowledging the phone call did happen but claiming Taylor "cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message."

In Kim's Snapchats, Kanye is only seen reading Taylor the lyric, "For all my south side n****s that know me best / feel like me and Taylor might still have sex" and not the most contested line, "Why? Because I made that b*tch famous."

"Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that b*tch famous,'" Taylor's rep also said. "Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term 'that b*tch' in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated."

"Kim Kardashian's claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone," it concluded.

This is only the latest controversy surrounding Taylor, after ex Calvin Harris blasted her on Twitter last week -- prompting yet another shady response from Katy Perry. Check out his four biggest bombshell accusations in the video below.
