What’s happened to Taylor Swift? Within weeks the former good girl appears to have gone bad. First she disrespected her ex Calvin Harris by moving on Swiftly with new man Tom Hiddleston, and now she’s taking on Kim K and Kanye West by calling them liars. However, new evidence suggests that it is in fact T-Swizzle who has been fibbing.
A Swift Little liar
A legal letter from Taylor’s lawyers has allegedly surfaced showing that she did approve of Kanye’s song, Famous. The rapper released the video for the track – in which he jokes about sleeping with Taylor and calls her a b**** while lying in bed with a wax model of her and a host of other stars – prompting Swift’s representative to blast his choice of lyrics. Kanye shot back and revealed she was aware of the song and had given him the OK to reference her, but the pop star’s reps insisted that that was not the case.
Taylor Totally Knew
Then, in a GQ interview earlier this month, Kanye’s wife Kim alleged Taylor “totally knew” about the song, and that a tape of the phone call in which she agreed to the track being released exists. Britain’s The Sun newspaper now claims it has seen a legal letter sent by Taylor’s lawyers, in which they insist that the tape of the conversation is destroyed. “Taylor got her lawyers to threaten Kanye and demanded that the recording was killed,” a source told the newspaper. “They stressed the phone call was confidential and that publishing it would violate her rights. It validates that a taped conversation where Taylor was onboard with the song does exist, and just shows how worried she is about the truth coming out.”
Kanye Made the Call
Following Kim’s chat with GQ, Taylor’s representatives released a statement in which they accused the reality star of being “incorrect” in her claims and insinuated that she was just following her hubby’s orders. However, they did say in a statement: “Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that b****’ in referencing her. Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave
