UPDATED 3/24, 10 a.m. ET: Taylor Swift's publicist has released her unedited statement about the phone call between the singer and Kanye West, as a response to one of Kim Kardashian's recent tweets. Kardashian had tweeted that "Taylor lied through her publicist" surrounding the initial "Famous" situation.

Publicist Tree Paine's new statement reads, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"

See original story below.

Kim Kardashian has responded to Taylor Swift after the singer made mention of her leaked 2016 phone call with Kanye West while asking her fans to donate to Feeding America and the World Health Organization.

In a string of posts made to her Twitter and IG account, Kim defended her husband and called Taylor out for referencing the beef during the coronavirus pandemic. Kim said she was "mortified to be doing it right now" but felt like she was "left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying." The reality television star went on to say Swift "manipulated the truth of their actual conversation." She closed out her message by saying it would be the last time she would speak on the topic.

This latest back and forth began after a longer version of the 2016 call surfaced online last week. In the call, Kanye asks Swift about mentioning her on his The Life of Pablo song "Famous." Although he notified her of the bar he intended to rap on the track, he didn't bring up the part in which he calls Swift "that bitch." For those in need of a refresher, Kanye rapped: "For all my Southside n*ggas that know me best/I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous."
