Kim Kardashian brands Taylor Swift a 'liar' over phone call feud, slams her for bringing it up during lockdown
Taking to her Instagram stories, Kim slammed Swift for bringing back the feud as the country deals with the lockdown from the coronavirus pandemic
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has claimed that singer Taylor Swift is lying about the latest round of their longtime feud.
Kim took to Instagram to share a series of messages where she shared that Swift is not being entirely truthful about the 2016 phone call with her and Kanye West regarding the song 'Famous'. There is an ongoing dispute over whether Swift was aware of Kanye's lyrics where he called her a 'b***h.'
Taking to her Instagram stories, Kim slammed Swift for bringing back the feud as the country deals with the lockdown from the coronavirus pandemic. "@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," Kim wrote.
She added how she had been avoiding adding fuel to the fire amid the COVID-19 outbreak and was not happy about doing so on Monday, March 23, when she shared the messages. However, Kim was of the opinion that she needed to defend her reputation.
"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," the beauty mogul shared.
"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 continued.
In response to this, Swift's publicist, Tree Paine, took to Twitter to say, "I'm Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that's editing. P.S. who did you guys p*** off to leak that video?" before adding several laughing/crying emojis.
"Nobody ever denied the word 'b***h' was used without her permission. The lie was never about the word b***h. It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation. 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," Kim shared.
She added that her husband rapper Kanye has every right to be able to document his musical journey as Swift had recently done in her documentary.
Kim's messages come after Swift took to her Instagram to share that she feels vindicated just days after the alleged full audio of her phone conversation aired.
The release of the unedited conversation is "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)" Swift wrote.
She also asked fans to move on from the feud and directed them to the Feeding America website where she suggested fans make donations to the NGO that operates a bunch of food banks. "If you have the ability to, please join me in donating during this crisis," Swift had written.
