Taylor swift dating kanye west
Here are three theories about this year’s most complicated celebrity beef. This is the version of events that hews closest to public knowledge.
West told Swift about part of the line, but didn’t include the "I made that bitch famous" section, and he didn’t play the song for her before its release.
Take a look back at their tumultuous relationship with the timeline below.
It’d be impossible to predict how the public — let alone Swift and West’s friends and associates, many of whom have weighed in on Twitter — would react; there’d be a ton of moving parts to coordinate and keep secret; it’s unlikely that Swift would threaten legal action contingent on California’s consent laws just for the sake of maintaining the charade.
She also noted that Swift’s attorney had sent a letter demanding the footage of their conversation be destroyed.
When contacted Swift for clarification, a spokesperson supplied a lengthy statement in which Swift asserted she’d never heard the "bitch" phrase or the song in full before its release, and that she "cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone." Here’s the evidence we’re working with, listed in roughly chronological order: It may never be clear exactly what happened between Swift and West in the months between the composition of "Famous" and Kardashian’s Snapchat reveal, but that hasn’t kept people from speculating about the precise chain of events that led to last night’s conflagration.
Here’s what we know for sure: West called Swift to earn her consent regarding the line "For all my Southside niggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," consent she gave in the taped conversation Kardashian posted on Snapchat.
When the song was officially released in mid-February, the line above ended with the phrase, "I made that bitch famous." A representative for Swift released a statement claiming she had no idea about the "bitch" portion of the lyrics, and that she’d "cautioned him against releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message." West denied Swift’s contention that she was entirely unaware.
