Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s history
The singer and the rapper have had quite the fiery history together which just adds more context to the so-called “feud” between the Kardashian and Taylor Swift. The spark that started all of the fire started off when Kanye West brought up Taylor Swift in his song with the lyrics “To all my Southside N—s that know me best, I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me s*x” and “I made that b**ch famous”. Since 2009, when Kanye West interrupted the singer on stage during the MTV Video Music Awards to tell her that Beyoncé deserved her VMA more, the two have been at odds.
Numerous admirers of the singer also remarked on the fact that 13 years had passed since Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the same program. The conflict between Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift started in 2016 when Kim Kardashian dubbed Taylor Swift a “snake” for saying she was not aware that her name was used in Kanye West’s song Famous.

Kim Kardashian has long since moved on from this. She only wishes prosperity and happiness for the Bad Blood singer.
