Kim Kardashian has fired back at Taylor Swift after the singer reacted to the released audio that seems to show she was telling the truth about her conversation with Kanye West in 2016.
In a series of tweets posted Monday night, Kim Kardashian responded to Taylor Swift’s recent statement regarding the release of the audio recording from her and Kanye West’s infamous 2016 phone conversation.
While reacting, Taylor said the recently released audio recording proved that she was “telling the truth the whole time about *that call*”. She added, “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.” (read here).
Kim responded by saying Taylor is still lying.
Kim tweeted, “@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.”
She continued, “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.”
Kim further stated: “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’.”
Kim continues, “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, who posted parts of the audio back in 2016 after the song’s release, also says she never edited it.
Kim also defended Kanye recording the call without Taylor’s permission, saying, “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 added that she’s done speaking on the matter.
