Things are getting messier and messier as Kanye West and Kim Kardashian release proofs confirming that Taylor Swift actually gave her consent before the rapper released his controversial “Famous” track in The Life of Pablo.

Swift did approve Kanye West’s track, a new report claims.
Recently, the Kardashians’ boutique and Kanye’s studio was vandalized, arousing speculations if these attacks could be connected to the on-going lyrical war.
In one of Kanye’s most recent interviews, the rapper made claims–which was confirmed by wife, Kim–that Swift was fully aware of the lyrics in his track ‘Famous’. The lyrical war started with these lines – “I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that b**ch famous.”
According to the couple, the singer who’s denying having knowledge of such lyrics or giving her consent before release, had even promised to laugh about the song at the Grammy awards. Kanye and Kim also claimed that the phone call where she did so had been recorded.
But a furious Taylor soon hit back saying that while she did speak to Kanye on the phone she never approved the track as the rapper didn’t play it for her.
However, it’s now been claimed that the tape – where Taylor is said to have given her approval – does exist.
In documents seen by TheSun, a legal letter from the singer’s lawyers allegedly orders the rapper to destroy the tape.

A source told the newspaper: “Taylor got her lawyers to threaten Kanye and demanded that the recording was killed. They stressed the phone call was confidential and that publishing it would violate her rights.
“It validates that a taped conversation where Taylor was on board with the song does exist, and just shows how worried she is about the truth coming out.”
The official statement added: “Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place.
“It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, ‘that b**ch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift.”
The statement concluded: “Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
