Earlier this week, photos of Kim Kardashian nude on the cover of GQ made the rounds online.
The Internet responded with a collective yawn, as Kim has pretty well flooded the market with nudity at this point. But once the interview that went with those pics went public, things got interesting:
In response to a question about Taylor Swift’s comments about Kanye West after he rapped about her in unflattering fashion on his latest album, Kim went off on the “Shake It Off” singer.
Kim is usually pretty coy on these matters, but when it comes to defending her controversial husband the mother of two does not mince words.
Kim flat-out called Taylor a liar, insisting that she had approved the lyrics in a phone conversation with Kanye months before the album was released:
“[Taylor] totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t,” Kim told the men’s mag.
“She totally gave the okay. Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew.”
She added that Taylor slammed West in the press and in her acceptance speech at the Grammys simply because she enjoys “playing the victim.”
Now, Radar Online is reporting that Taylor has fired back through a statement issued by her team:
“Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West,” her rep said in a statement.
“However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since.
“Taylor has never denied that conversation took place.”
So it seems we have a classic case of she-said, she-said here.
But unlike most petty arguments, this one involves two of the most famous women in the world, and one seriously volatile dude.
So get your popcorn ready, because we feel like this thing is just starting.
