One more Squad girl speaks up…

In the three days since Kim Kardashian West leaked the phone call between her husband, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift about the lyrics to  “Famous,” a bunch of members of Swift’s squad (Selena Gomez, Ruby Rose, and Martha Hunt) have spoken out, and some (Gigi Hadid, Kendrick Lamar, Cara Delevingne) have NOT.  This thing is dividing the squad, yo. And sometimes it’s ugly, but sometimes it’s pretty. Vanity Fair caught up with squad member Uzo Aduba and asked if Swift will get past this nasty battle with Kimye. and she weighed in:

“She will,” said the Orange Is the New Black star at the Cinema Society screening of her new Netflix movie Tallulah in New York City on Tuesday evening. “She’s a beautiful person and strong.”

One more for TAY!

The Emmy award-winning actress has been a part of Swift’s inner social circle for a while now, even joining Swift onstage twice during her 1989 tour last year, singing “White Horse” at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. So you know, she kinda owes Tay one?

Why Isn’t The #Squad Defending Taylor Swift?

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 1.33.25 PM

Does this mark the end of #squadgoals?!

Several of Taylor Swift’s friends took her side in the immediate aftermath of Kim Kardashian revealing Tay’s “Famous” convo with Kanye West. Selena Gomez, for one. But what’s more interesting is that there are some squad members NOT speaking up in Taylor’s defense, and it seems like that’s going to be awkward come next 4th of July.

People Magazine had a rundown of who is NOT speaking here. It includes Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne, likely because they’re both close to Kendall Jenner and they know and are friendly with Kim Kardashian. Karlie Kloss hasn’t said anything either and she’s one of Taylor’s BFFs, and Lena Dunham hasn’t said anything, either!

Meanwhile, Taylor’s BFF Abigail Anderson went OFF in a series of now-deleted tweets on Monday. Abigail brought North West into it. Nope.

“Lord, hear my prayers. … I pray God helps your daughter understand, that despite how many times she’ll hear daddy reference all women as ‘bitches,’ she isn’t one. I pray she understands her father actually IS faithful to her mother, despite all the adulterous comments she will hear her father making. … I pray that she will understand ‘adultery and bitches’ are just daddy’s form of art and not to worry because not every man thinks like him. … Lastly, I pray for forgiveness. May God forgive you & your wife for doing to others the very things you pray are NEVER done to your daughter.”

Yikes. I guess she got a bunch of death threats after this, which sucks. BUT- I also think she’s being a little sanctimonious. What #Squad members do you think should be defending Tay more?

Kanye West’s Camp Is Going AFTER Taylor Swift HARDCORE

64th Annual BMI Pop Awards

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.

Taylor Swift Wants To Take Kanye West To COURT?!

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 2.46.23 PM

Taylor Swift does NOT mess around!

Apparently, the singer threatened Kanye West with criminal prosecution months ago for secretly recording her phone conversation with him, and TMZ has the docs to prove it!

Back in February, Taylor’s lawyer sent a letter to Kanye’s attorney making it clear, under California law, that anyone who secretly records a telephone conversation with someone in the state is commiting a criminal offense, and um, that’s a FELONY. The letter says that “Demand is hereby made that you immediately destroy all such recordings, provide us of assurance that this has been done, and also assurance that these recordings have not been previously disseminated.”

And, they didn’t! In fact, Kim Kardashian leaked that shizz on Snapchat on Sunday!

A source with knowledge of the legendary “Famous” convo told TMZ it was recorded in an L.A.-area studio, and obvi without Taylor’s permission. She’s got a right to file the lawsuit, but will she win it? WHO KNOWS.

Stay tuned, people!
