I made that bitch famous.” Reports followed suggesting Swift approved the line, however, it wasn’t long before she issued a statement denying so and claiming she had "cautioned [West] over releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message".Her brother, Austin, also made a point of filming himself throwing his Yeezy trainers (designed by West) in the bin.Given the feud between the two artists over Kanye's song "Famous," some wondered if Taylor was trying to shade him.

And then Kanye and I both reached a pace where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.” In the interview, Swift also spoke of her adoration for West’ wife Kim Kardashian-West: “I love Kim. She’s just a really sweet, kind, warm person.” In September 2015, Swift and West later shared the VMA stage once again but this time it was for the singer to present the rapper with the Vanguard award.

The 26-year-old told a crowd West’s debut album was the first album she bought online as a teenager.

While their issues seem to be far from over, it is reassuring to hear that Swift did not intentionally choose Donda's death anniversary as her album release date.

So far, Kanye has not responded to the perceived digs at him in "Look What You Made Me Do," and Taylor has not confirmed him as a target either.

"There is no correlation."People have also been speculating that the lyrics of "Look What You Made Me Do," the first single off the album, are jabs at Kanye.

Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s up-and-down friendship has been marked by award ceremony fallouts and make-ups, extravagant flower arrangements and now an apparent leaked phone call recording.

West was reportedly asked to leave the ceremony and Beyonce later gave Swift the opportunity to give her acceptance speech when she actually did win an award later that night.

The Chicago-born rapper was widely condemned over the incident including by President Obama who was recorded branding West a “jackass”.

Taylor and Kanye have had a turbulent relationship since the infamous 2009 VMA moment in which West interrupted the singer's acceptance speech.

Most recently, the two clashed over a line from West's 2016 single "Famous" in which he raps "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous." Following Swift's public denouncement of the line, Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian shared a recording on Snapchat which revealed Taylor giving at least part of the line the green light ahead of the release.

A few months later, the “Trouble” singer told their healing of relations was in part due to West’s mentor, and Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z.
