Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner’s fight may have began because the model started dating Harry Styles, but it re-erupted for a very different reason this spring, a new report claims — Kendall’s refusal to make a cameo appearance in Taylor’s ‘Bad Blood’ video!
A whole group of A-listers showed up to star in Taylor Swift’s, 25, “Bad Blood” video, but noticeably missing was one of the hottest young celebs of the year, Kendall Jenner! The 19-year-old was reportedly offered a chance to make a cameo, but declined…and the decision has been a major source of tension in her friendship with Taylor!
“She could have participated, she just decided not to,” OK! Magazine reports. “Taylor thinks she’s been nothing but supportive of Kendall, introducing her to lots of influential people, but Kendall’s so consumed with herself, she doesn’t have time to reciprocate.”
Ouch! The alleged diss is especially surprising, considering some of Kendall’s closest friends, Cara Delevingne, 22, and Gigi Hadid, 20, appeared in the vid and then subsequently showed up to support Taylor on her 1989 tour, making surprise appearances with her onstage.
The mag reports that Kendall and Taylor really can’t stand each other, and even though they spent some time hanging out in 2014, the trouble really began when the reality star and Harry Styles, 21, Taylor’s ex, dated for a few months at the end of 2013 and into the beginning of the new year.
“Harry’s always been the biggest issue between them,” an insider tells OK! “Taylor thinks it was completely disrespectful for Kendall to be hooking up with Harry after he broke Taylor’s heart.” It also didn’t help that Kendall’s recently gotten super close to Justin Bieber, 21, who once dated Taylor’s BFF, Selena Gomez. SO much drama!
Kendall Thinks Taylor Is A ‘Mean Girl’
In terms of the “Bad Blood” cameo, OK! claims that Kendall really wanted nothing to do with making an appearance. “Kendall thinks Taylor is too full of herself and a control freak,” the source says. “She thinks Taylor plays people against each other. She’s happy to steer clear of her mean-girl games.”
But, don’t forget — E! News in May that Kendall actually wanted to be in “Bad Blood,” she just didn’t have time. “She couldn’t do it because she had an out-of-town commitment on shoot day,” the site reports. “She was bummed she couldn’t [be in it], but loved the video.”
