Kim Kardashian Responded To Taylor Swift's Statement About The Leaked Kanye West Phone Call

Oh boy...

Over the weekend, the full version of Taylor Swift's 2016 phone call with Kanye leaked online.

The leak shows that Kanye didn't disclose all the details about his song "Famous" and didn't get Taylor's permission to use the infamous lyrics "I made that bitch famous."

On Monday, Taylor broke her silence on the video after liking Tumblr posts from fans showing their support towards her telling the truth this whole time.

Now, Kim Kardashian's broken her silence, too, responding to Taylor's statement with 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.

As for why Kanye didn't disclose the "I made that bitch famous" lyrics, Kim says Kanye hadn't written that part of the song yet.

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.

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.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time we'll hear about the matter, but we'll see!

Update: Taylor's publicist responded on Twitter.

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 piss off to leak that video? 😂😂😂 https://t.co/AtMGUp3t24
