Taylor Swift has slammed Kim Kardashian for sharing a secretly recorded phone call of her approving Kanye West’s Famous lyrics.
The video clips that the Kim posted appear to show Taylor okaying the song but the 26-year-old star insisted in an Instagram message on Sunday that it doesn’t prove she approved the ‘I made that b***h famous’ line.
Not taking the leak lying down, Taylor hit back at the famous pair, Tweeting: “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that b***h’ in his song?
“It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b***h’ in front of the entire world.
“Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did.
“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.
“I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be part of, since 2009.”
Mrs Kanye West – Kim, shocked fans on Sunday by sharing a recording of the phone call where the rapper talks to Taylor on speakerphone about his controversial new track.
The clips starts with Kanye confirming the singer’s Nashville phone number before he reads her the lyrics – “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex”
In the next clip Kanye is heard telling Taylor: “I think this is a really cool thing to have.”
Taylor then responds “I know, I mean it’s like a compliment.”
“What I give a f**k about is you as a person and as a friend. I want things that make you feel good. I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad,” Kanye says.
The songstress then says, “Go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it. That’s really nice.”
“I just have a responsibility to you as a friend. Thanks for being so cool about it,” the rapper responds.
Taylor then gushes: “I really appreciate it. The heads up is so nice…I never would have expected you to tell me about a line in a lyric. And the flowers that you sent me, I Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten.”
“Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know,” Kanye says.
Taylor then adds, “Yeah, I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, “Oh that’s a real bit. She must be crying.”
The videos do not appear to show Kanye asking Taylor about the lyrics “I made that b***h famous,” which reportedly infuriated her when the song was released earlier this year.
