Taylor Swift still tries to claim her innocence, meanwhile Kanye West‘s camp is NOT HAVING IT.
Following Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat reveal of Taylor’s conversation with Kanye West, Taylor’s team tried VERY HARD to change the conversation and to to sic their legal dogs on Kimye, but it doesn’t solve anything and likely won’t be valid. Taylor playing the victim just doesn’t have the same gravitas anymore, does it?
For the past seven years, Taylor Swift and Kanye West have had a roller coaster of a relationship. While the pair appeared to bury the hatchet last year when Swift presented West with a prestigious award at the MTV Video Music Awards, a source close to Swift tells PEOPLE exclusively West has continuously taken shots at the singer throughout her career.
“Since 2009, when Kanye West stormed the stage and ripped the microphone out of Taylor’s hand, he has been trying to rewrite history; one that includes President Obama calling him a jackass because of his actions,” says the Swift source. “For seven years, Kanye has continued to attack Taylor, attempting to incite hatred for her at his live shows and on social media, even going so far as portraying her naked in his most recent music video. His obsession with and harassment of Taylor over the last seven years is unhealthy and if he were not a celebrity, he would be considered a stalker.”
After West released his song “Famous” – which includes controversial lyrics about Swift – in February, the pair’s feud was reignited. Swift denied the rapper’s claims that she had approved of the lyrics and suggested the line, “I made that bitch famous.”
“Once again, Taylor Swift is playing the victim. Shocking!” a source close to West tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Funny, she didn’t think he was harassing her when she thanked him for being so thoughtful and considerate when he called to get her permission for ‘Famous,’ or for the kind gesture of sending her flowers after she presented him with the MTV Video Vanguard Award. As the recordings reveal, she is a liar and nothing she says will change the truth.”
Kanye is still a dick, for SURE. And he paid for it. But also, that’s just WHO HE IS. Taylor, on the other hand, has spent years meticulously constructing her persona as innocent, sweet, honest and supportive. She made a choice to completely misrepresent Kanye West, and she knows who HE is, and that he probably wouldn’t stand for this particular brand of BS.
