Kim Kardashian says Taylor Swift played the victim in row with Kanye.

Kim Kardashian has marked Taylor Swift as a liar for saying she hadn’t approved a lyric that has appeared in Kanye West’s latest album.

The lyrics in question are from Kanye’s latest Life of Pablo album and feature the lines: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b***h famous.”

The confession came out in an interview with GQ in which Kardashian openly attacked the singer and defended her husband.

“She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much s**t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved,” Kardashian said.

“What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?”

West even issued a series of tweets in relation to the controversy where he “called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line,” that she “thought it was funny,” and “gave her blessings”.

Swift's response to the drama was fed back through the all-too personal pipeline of a public relations representative.

The representative denied West's claim outright saying Swift had even cautioned the singer about including such a 'misogynistic' message.

“Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous,'” the representative said.

The plot thickens as Kardashian claims the request - which camp Swift are allegedly denying happened - was actually filmed by one of West's videographers.

Kardashian then said she was contacted by a legal representative of Swift who may have warned against releasing the footage.

“No. Maybe an attorney's letter she sent saying, ‘Don't ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it,'" she said.

The main issue with the lyric seemed to be use of the term 'bitch' and its perception as an outright derogatory term for women.

Both West and Kardashian tried to explain how the use of the term was being misconstrued.

Kardashian told the magazine the term largely loses its derogatory meaning in the context of rap.

"I mean, he's called me a bitch in his songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years," she said.

West even tweeted how the term was simply a reference to women.

Kardashian went on to say that Swift had played 'the victim' about the ordeal for the comments she made during her Grammy's acceptance speech.

"And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again," she said.

Swift made a comment in her acceptance speech for the album 1989 that was largely considered a personal dig at West.

“I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments, or your fame...” she said.

The truth behind the matter is yet to be seen but we'll be keeping an eye out for any footage released.
