Kim Kardashian Says Taylor Swift is Lying, But Doesn't Deny This One Thing

Kim Kardashian Says Taylor Swift is Lying, But Doesn't Deny This One Thing

Kim Kardashian is speaking out in response to Taylor Swift, who just reacted to the leak of her entire 2016 phone call with Kanye West.

Kanye had called Taylor on the phone to ask her to launch his song “Famous,” which she is referenced on. Once the song was released, she was upset to find out that he called her a “b-tch” and she released a statement in reaction to the track. Kim then released some short video clips of the phone call in her attempt to prove that she was aware of the song.

Fast forward to nearly four years later, Taylor felt vindicated when the full phone call was released and it proved her side of the story.

Kim released the below statement on Monday night (March 23) on her Instagram Stories:

“@taylorswift 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. 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,” Kim wrote on her Instagram Stories.

“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,” Kim added. “Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission. At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, 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.’”

“The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation,” Kim continued. “I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.”

“To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary. Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption and the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied and forced me to defend him,” she said.

“This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares. Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters,” Kim concluded.
