Kimye x Taylor Swift feud continues
It turns out, we all owe Taylor Swift an apology. After the full recording of the infamous phone call got leaked, the truth was revealed that Swift didn't actually hear the whole lyrics of Kanye's then-unreleased song especially the line with b-word. In no time, people took to Twitter to share their disgust at what was seemingly a manipulation to turn everyone against Swift back in 2016. Mrs. Kardashian-West was quick to defend herself on Twitter saying that her issue is Swift lying about Kanye not calling to ask permission and not about using the b-word without permission. Tree Paine, Taylor's publicists, responded by reposting their original statement three years ago which says that Kanye did call to ask Swift to "release Famous on her Twitter account" but not for the approval of the lyrics. Now that that's finally settled, the next question is — who leaked the full clip?
