The singer Taylor Swift has accused rapper Kanye West and his wife, reality star Kim Kardashian of a malicious slander.
The reason for the charges was the publication of a transcript of a conversation between West and Swift, from which it can be assumed that the singer approved of the lines dedicated to her in the rapper’s song Famous. It was Kim Kardashian who published the transcript.
In the song West sings: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex’, and also gives an unprintable epithet to the singer. In February 2016, the musician, responding to the criticism, argued that Swift allegedly approved of these lines.
From the record published by Kardashian it is clear that West read out only a phrase about sex to Swift, and the singer replied that she appreciated the fact that the rapper told her about it.
Now Swift has publicly wondered where there is a record in which West uses an unquotable epithet into her address. ‘It doesn’t exist as it never happened,’the singer said. ‘Of course I wanted to enjoy the song, I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I’d like the song. I wanted to be friends with him. He promised to play that song for me, but he never did’, she said.
According to Swift, in conversation with West, she wanted to express support, but “you can’t “approve of” song you haven’t heard”.
Swift emphasized that she was mistakenly made a liar, because she didn’t know the whole story and did not hear a single part of the song.
“This moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, and then Kim publishes it on the Internet”, the singer said.
Earlier Swift criticized Kanye West for “misogyny”.
