Kanye West is furious with Taylor Swift, not only over the supposed fact that she lied about not knowing she was being mentioned on the rapper’s hit song “Famous,” but also for the rather snarky comments that were made from her team regarding his wife, Kim Kardashian.
The 39-year-old “Waves” hitmaker is currently gearing up to kick off his Saint Pablo tour in August, and from what sources have revealed, Kanye is going to use his platform to expose Swift for trying to sabotage his career, claiming she was left disturbed over a reference Kanye West made in one of his newest songs.
Many fans will recall the incident earlier this year when Kanye West released “Famous,” which is undeniably one of the most controversial tracks lifted from his latest album, The Life Of Pablo. In one line, the father of two raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**** famous,” which didn’t sit too well with those who consider themselves loyal fans to Swift.

Kanye went on to reassure all the critics that he had Taylor’s permission to put it out, claiming that the twosome had a conversation weeks prior to the release of the track. The 26-year-old was really feeling the song and gave Kanye her approval, the rapper claimed at the time, but within hours, Taylor’s team denied those allegations.
Since then, Taylor and Kanye West have definitely not remained on good terms. And in a recent interview Kim Kardashian did with GQ, the reality star stresses that Taylor is a liar for claiming she didn’t know about the song since she was in the room when the conversation between the two took place at her house.
Furthermore, Kim says Taylor is evidently trying to make herself out as the victim in this whole situation, using her acceptance speech at the Grammys to make it seem as if she was left in the dark about the “Famous” reference, which is not the case. Swift and her team put out another statement, stating that the TV personality must be “under a lot of pressure” from her husband to follow along with what he has told the media, which is nothing but lies.

All in all, Kanye West is said to be furious because he knows the truth — in fact, he reportedly still has the voice recording of his phone call with Taylor. In Touch reveals that Kanye is definitely planning to do something for his tour that will set the record straight once and for all. He accepted the wrong that he was in the wrong when he infamously interrupted Taylor during her VMAs acceptance speech in 2009, but he will not take the bullet for something that Swift has more or less caused on herself.
“He’s planning an epic takedown of Taylor on his upcoming tour,” the source reveals. “He’s going to slam her nightly. The plan is for Kanye to play the infamous clip of Taylor accepting her VMA and him storming the stage, and Kim will be featured in the video somehow. It will mock Taylor’s good-girl image.”
Kanye West is still putting together the tour, so it’s still unclear how everything will play out, but he’s definitely planning something related to the Taylor Swift incident because he refuses to take the blame for this.
