Taylor Swift has hit back at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West after Kardashian posted videos of a phone call between her rapper husband and the singer.

The clips show West apparently on the phone to Swift, discussing his song Famous, in which he raps: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**** famous."

West was criticised for the lyric after he first played the song at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show, but he insisted Swift had given her blessing. Swift denied this.

West's wife Kim Kardashian waded into the feud when she posted a string of videos of a phone conversation between West and Swift, in which West says that he is working on a song and wants to use the lyric, after which she appears to give her blessing.

But Swift has since denied approving the song. She wrote on Instagram: "Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b****' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened.

"You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called 'that b****' in front of the entire world."
