Taylor Swift has been in a ton of drama lately. Like, a lot. Even for her. But all of that is nothing compared to the powder keg Kim Kardashian ignited on her Snapchat account Sunday night.
After months of back and forth with Taylor about her supposed approval of the controversial line in her husband Kanye West’s single “Famous,” Kim may finally be getting the last laugh as she pulled receipts on Taylor, offering alleged proof of her not only approving the line but calling it “a compliment.” She warned her fans on Twitter to follow her on Snapchat, and a few minutes later she hopped on the app and dropped the bombshell.
In her Snap story, Kim posted a video of Kanye and Taylor having a conversation on speaker phone, where ‘Ye explains the line to her, even rapping it to her. After Kanye recites the line “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” Taylor thanks him for sending her flowers and mentions she appreciates the advanced notice, several times.
“All I give a f*ck about is just you as a person and as a friend,” Kanye says while Taylor chimes in with “Oh, that’s sweet.” Then she gives approval saying “Yeah go with whatever line you think is better, it’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way.” Taylor then continues with “I really appreciate you telling me about it, the heads up is so nice,” showing not only did she approve of everything but that she was in on the joke and tongue and cheek nature.
Posting the video is Kim following through on her promise to “do whatever it takes to defend my husband,” last week. The video also confirms the story she told GQ last month when Kim said “she [Swift] totally approved that,” and mentioned the conversation and the fact that Rick Rubin was there to bear witness to the entire thing. And lo and behold, there’s Rick right there in Kim’s Snapchat story.
Below is even more of Kim’s video where Taylor says Kanye calling her is “a really cool thing to do and a really good show of friendship so thank you.” Taylor even says she’d tell the media Kanye called her beforehand if the line ever comes up.
UPDATE: Taylor Swift has responded via Instagram.
