Four years after the fact, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were proved to be the snakes in the Taylor Swift-Kanye Famous controversy.
Over the weekend, the full unedited version of Kanye and Taylor's conversation about the track leaked. In it, Taylor never gives Kanye her blessing to drop the track and he fails to ever say he was going to use the word "bitch" to describe her.
An edited version of the conversation Kim leaked at the time made it seem like Taylor had given Ye her blessing and had known all of the lyrics.
Last night, Swift responded with an IG Story post that directed her fans to donate Feeding America and the COVID-19 Response Fund.
That was too much for the snake Kim Kardashian to handle, and she lashed out at Taylor in a series of Tweets.
.@taylorswift13 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.
“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 ‘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.
“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 & the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied & forced me to defend him.
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.”
Taylor's publicist had the last word.
I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing.— Tree Paine (@treepaine) March 24, 2020
