Having trouble keeping up with the battle between Taylor Swift and Kimye? Fret not, because we put together a timeline of everything that has happened in the last 24 hours — from Kim’s release of that private phone call to the internet’s attack on Selena Gomez. Check it out!
The internet pretty much exploded on July 17, when Kim Kardashian shared a private phone conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, proving Tay Tay really did know about ‘Famous’ before its release. Then, multiple celebs, including Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato chimed in on the feud. It’s a lot to take in, so check out our timeline of events to see everything that has happened thus far!
So this all started in February 2016, when Kanye released his new song “Famous,” which took aim at Taylor. He basically said he “made that bitch famous,” when he stormed the stage and ruined her VMAs acceptance speech in 2009. Swifties immediately went into overdrive and attacked Kanye for dissing Taylor, but he claimed she knew about the song beforehand and was totally cool with it. Then, at the Grammys, she addressed the issue and told everyone not to ever let some take credit for their success — an obvious jab at Kanye. She pretty much acted like she knew nothing about the song beforehand and wasn’t a fan of it after its release.
Well, fast forward to July 2016, and Kim Kardashian defended her husband during an interview with GQ magazine, saying Taylor did, in fact, have a conversation with Kanye over the phone. She also said she had the entire conversation recorded, in which Taylor said she was a huge fan of the lyrics to the song.
Then, following the July 17 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which focused on Taylor’s supposed involvement with the song, Kim released Kanye and Taylor’s private phone conversation on Snapchat. And this was right after she referred to Taylor as a “snake” on Twitter.

There are more important things to talk about… Why can't people use their voice for something that fucking matters?

Selena, who’s one of the few celebs defending Taylor, is now getting bashed online for her involvement. Even Kris Jenner is pissed at her for getting involved.
Obviously, it’s a very messy feud and we don’t see this coming to an end anytime soon. So keep coming back to HollywoodLife.com for all the updates!
