Kim Kardashian West 'never talked bad' about Taylor Swift

KIM Kardashian West insists she "never publicly talked bad" about Taylor Swift.

Earlier this year, the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star leaked a recorded conversation between her rap superstar husband Kanye West and the 'Blank Space' singer which confirmed she knew about his controversial song 'Famous' - which features lyrics where he calls the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker a "b***h" and says they might have sex - before he released it.

And despite the subsequent fallout - including Taylor's insistence she had no idea about the most controversial lyric - Kim insists she wasn't throwing shade at the 26-year-old star and is actually a "fan" of her music.

She told Wonderland magazine: "I never publicly talk bad about people. I still don't feel like I have. I'm being honest. I'm a fan. I like her music. There was no shade."

The 35-year-old reality star also revealed some of Taylor's famous friends got in touch following their public row.

She said: "Girls in her squad hit me up on text."

However, asked who had contacted her, she said: "I'm not petty."

But it may not have been Karlie Kloss who tackled Kim on the subject, as the Victoria's Secret model previously insisted the brunette beauty was a "lovely person".

Asked in an interview if Kim is a "good person", Karlie, 24, said: "Ha... you know... I honestly... I... I...I think she's been a lovely person to me in the past. Look, I really don't know her that well."

After Kim leaked the conversation between Kanye and Taylor, the 'Love Story' singer hit back and insisted she never approved the actual "bitch" lyric that Kanye used in the track.

She wrote on Instagram: "Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b***h' 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***h' in front of the entire world."
