Ut oh. Taylor Swift has officially gotten wind of Kanye West’s new diss track, and she is NOT happy about it! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Tay is ‘absolutely appalled’ after listening to Kanye’s lyrics about her, and is actually convinced that he’s just ‘using her name to sell records!’

Yeezy fans everywhere might be digging Kanye West‘s new song “Famous,” but we know of at least one person who’s not too keen on it: that’s right — Taylor Swift! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Taylor is “absolutely appalled” that Kanye would rap about wanting to have sex with her at his Yeezy 3 fashion show, and is convinced that he only did it in an attempt to sell more records. Could this be the end of their beautiful friendship as we know it?

“Taylor’s heard the news and isn’t happy about it whatsoever,” a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is absolutely appalled and horrified that Kanye would say something like that on a record about her. She’s convinced he only dropped her name in his lyrics because it would gain the attention he wants to sell records.”

Ouch! As previously reported, Kanye first debuted the song at his Yeezy season three fashion show at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 11. Despite having cleared up their longtime feud months ago, Kanye appeared to be stirring up the bad blood once again when he rapped the lines: “I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that b-tch famous.” Whoa. Where’s the love Kanye?!

Unfortunately, Taylor wasn’t the only one feeling the sting of Kanye’s lyrics that night. The song, which also features Rihanna, includes another risqué line, this time calling out Blac Chyna, and Ray J! “For all the girls that get d-ck from Kanye West, if you see them on the streets give Kanye’s best,” he raps. Seriously, what is going on here, Kanye?

Needless to say, fans were pretty surprised to hear Kanye dissing the “Style” singer once again, considering that the two famously called off their beef following that whole 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident a few months ago, and even appeared to have become close friends! In fact, it wasn’t long ago that Taylor opened up to Vanity Fair magazine about the pair’s unlikely friendship. “I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [Kanye] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me,” she told the magazine in the Sep. 2015 issue. “And he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me.”

In the end, it was ultimately Ye’s BFF Jay Z, who was able to bring the two together. “I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along,” Taylor added. She then went on to explain that, thanks to Hova, she and Yeezy have “both reached a place 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.”

Unfortunately, we doubt Taylor’s going to be checking in on Kanye’s family any time soon now given his latest diss track. In fact, they might want to just give Jay Z a call now and see if he can’t work his magic on their friendship once again. Otherwise, this might just get ugly!

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Kanye’s new song? do you think he just used Taylor’s name to try to sell more records? Sound off below!
