Kim Kardashian has refused to play the bad guy in the miscommunication mishap that is the infamous phone call between Taylor Swift and her husband Kanye West.
Over the weekend, the presumed full phone 2016 call between the artists made its way to social media, regarding West asking Swift to share on Twitter his upcoming single “Famous.”
As time tells it, West was in the middle of creating the single when he reached out to Swift not only spread the word about the single but to give her a heads up about lyrics. As we all know, the single was released with the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex..Why? I made that b***h famous.”
With the full video coming to light, fans have flocked to Swift’s side to show she was unaware of the “b***h” line in the song. Since the release of “Famous,” Kardashian has tried to defend her husband by releasing part of the phone call to prove Swift was aware of it.
“Instead of answering those who are asking 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)… SWIPE UP to see what really matters,” she shared on Monday (March 23), linking to the Feeding America donation page.
“The World Health Organization and Feeding America are some of the organizations I’ve been donating to. If you have the ability to, please join me in donating during this crisis,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, Kim decided to slam Swift for bringing up the video.
“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.” Kardashian said.
“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 (expletive) was used without her permission.”

Kardashian claims she “never” edited the footage of the phone call. “The full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.”She tweeted. “This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares.”
As the she said-she said continues, Swift’s publicist Tree Paine commented on the situation.
“I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement,” they said with shade on Twitter. “Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing. P.S. who did you guys piss off to leak that video?” Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She decline and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that (expletive) famous.’ “
Kardashian had an army behind her thanks to her sisters Kendall and Khloe liking her rant on social media. Khloe went a little further by defending Kim on Twitter.
“I was about to go take my a** to sleep but then I just saw my sister post a couple tweets. Kimberly you better!!!!!!!!” Khloe said.
“Kim is my f**king lawyer for life!!!!!! My sister AND my lawyer.”Khloe also wrote and then deleted two additional tweets, which read, “OK for reals now, I’m going to have KKW read me a bedtime story!!! @KimKardashian night night. Remember to social distance, wash your hands every 20 mins, cough into your elbow, don’t be f**king rude and most importantly #KUWTK airs this THURSDAY. Sweet dreams.”
