Kanye West is a famous celebrity who is also well-known for his controversial statements, massive rants and the wide variety of celebrity friends and foes he invariably seems to attract.
Kanye West has been known to lock horns with celebrities like Wiz Khalifa, Bob Ezrin, and perhaps most famously, Taylor Swift. However, the rapper’s recent feud with Taylor Swift is about to get even more heated. Recently, Kanye West released his The Life of Pablo album which features a song whose lyrics have irked Taylor Swift. According to News Australia, the lyrics that angered Taylor Swift include a line that directly refers the singer as a “b***h.”
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that b***h famous.”

The furious Taylor Swift hit back at Kanye West during her Grammy award acceptance speech by accusing the “Flashing Lights” singer of hindering her success and taking credit for her fame. However, Kim Kardashian, Kanye’s celebrity wife, branded Taylor Swift as a liar who had earlier approved of the song over the phone.

In fact, Kim Kardashian claims that Taylor’s approval has been recorded on tape. Taylor Swift, in turn, has hired lawyers who have issued a scathing statement that refutes Kim Kardashian’s version of the story.
Instead, Taylor’s lawyers claim that Kanye West and Taylor hadn’t spoken over the phone since January, 2016 and that Kanye had never revealed that he would use the term “b***h” to refer to Taylor in the song. Additionally, the lawyers claimed that Taylor Swift was left humiliated after she heard the song, which Kanye even wanted the singer to promote on her Twitter account.
Taylor Swift has retaliated against Kanye and Kim by saying that the two are simply refusing to leave her alone. However, reports confirm the existence of a tape that contains the conversation which Taylor had with Kanye when she granted her approval to record the controversial song. A source has divulged that Taylor’s lawyers are threatening Kanye West to destroy the tape as the conversation featuring on the phone call was confidential, that making the tape open to public will violate Taylor’s rights. The tape seems to validate Kanye’s claims, and the entire feud seems to reveal how worried Taylor Swift is about the contents of the recording coming out.

Somehow the excited fan managed to neither freeze nor panic when shooting his questions at Kanye West, who was enjoying the time with his daughter. Kanye West was all smiles as the video showed the fan introducing Kanye, even as his mother was imploring him to come along.
