Kim Kardashian took to Snapchat to film a recording of a phone conversation that her husband, Kanye West had with country music star Taylor Swift. According to People Magazine, this sizable feud that is being played out for all to see was given roots thanks to Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian was quick to support her husband, tweeting a very simple message to her fans to get them on #TeamKanye.

Apparently, West had a conversation with Swift, in which she “approved” his lyrics for the song, Famous. For whatever reason, the phone call was recorded and Kim Kardashian wanted to prove to the world that the conversation really did happen. And so, Kim posted it after KUWTK aired.
“It’s like a compliment,” Swift can be heard telling Kanye after he reads her the lyrics.
“For all my Southside n—– that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
“What I give a f*** is you as a person, and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good,” West tells Swift. He thanked her for being cool with the lyrics and she responded in kind, telling West that it was super awesome of him to run said lyrics by her. The whole conversation was taped and saved — perhaps for this very reason.

Kim Kardashian decided to prove that this conversation actually went down so she used Snapchat to record snippets of it. She posted said recorded snippets to her Snapstory. So, what’s the issue? According to a rep, Taylor “was never made aware of the actual lyrics, ‘I made that b**** famous.’”
Kim Kardashian’s post did not include Kanye reading these specific lyrics to Taylor and this is what Taylor tweeted about after KUWTK aired.
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that b****’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b****’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”
Kim Kardashian hasn’t said much after posting the phone call videos on Snapchat. Do you think Kim did the right thing by posting the videos online? Many feel as though Kim Kardashian is meddling in this feud, and that she really should just stay out of it, do you agree?
Many are saying that Kim Kardashian “exposed” Taylor Swift on Snapchat and it does seem like that’s what Kim was trying to do. At the same time, however, sources say that Swift doesn’t understand why Kanye West and Kim Kardashian can’t just leave her alone. Do you think Kim and Kanye are bullying Taylor at this point?
And, one final question: Are you “Team Kanye” or “Team Swift”? Of course, Kim Kardashian sort of has her own team in this craziness too, so you could also be “Team Kim…” Choose wisely.
