Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift again! Reality star brands singer a LIAR about THAT phone call

Kim Kardashian says Taylor Swift is lying in the latest round of the long-running celeb feud between the reality TV star, 39, and Grammy winner, 30.

Kim posted a series of messages on her insta-story claiming Swift is not being fully truthful about the 2016 phone call with her and Kanye West about the song Famous - and the ongoing dispute as to whether Swift was aware of West's lyrics, in which he called her a 'b****.'

Kardashian, in a series of messages on Instagram Stories, also slammed Swift for her timing in rehashing the feud as the country remains locked down amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians wrote, '@taylorswift has chosen to reignite an old exchange - that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now.'

Kardashian said she had been avoiding giving the issue any oxygen amid the ongoing global outbreak - and was unhappy about doing so Monday - but needed to in an effort to defend her reputation.

'I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying,' Kardashian said.

The Calabasas native explained the nuances of the situation from her perspective: 'To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that "Kanye never called to ask for permission…" They clearly spoke so I let you all see that.'

Taylor's long time publicist quickly responded with a social media post of her own.

Tree Paine tweeted: 'I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing.

'P.S. who did you guys p*** off to leak that video?' followed by several laughing/crying emojis.
Kim continued: 'Nobody ever denied the word 'b****' was used without her permission.

'At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she "declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message."'

Kim clarified her take on the issue, and how she felt actions she and West took were ethical.

'The lie was never about the word b****, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation. I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn't change the narrative,' she said.

'To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary.

'Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption and the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied and forced me to defend him.'

Kardashian made clear she is done commenting on the situation amid the unprecedented times due to the pandemic.

'This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares,' she said. 'Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.''
