Kendall Jenner is banning friends from listening to Taylor Swift's new music, according to a report. But Gossip Cop has exclusively learned this story was made up.
On its website, OK! is asserting in a headline, "Kendall Jenner Tells Friends: Ban Taylor Swift Music Or Else!" The article begins by contending, "If you want to remain Kendall Jenner's friend, you better stick to the program! The supermodel is letting all her A-lister pals know, ban Taylor Swift's music or there will be bad blood!" At issue is the performer's single, "Look What You Made Me Do," which is believed to be about Jenner's half-sister Kim Kardashian and brother-in-law Kanye West. After she "dissed" them, "the Kardashians are not trying to be in the same room as Taylor or ever listen to her music," claims the tabloid.
As a result, a so-called "insider" alleges to the gossip magazine, "There's no love lost between Taylor and Kendall these days, and what makes it super awkward is the fact they share so many friends. Since Taylor's been in hiding Kendall's very much the queen bee these days, so what she says goes for the majority of that group." This supposed source specifically asserts, "She's made it clear that anyone listening or supporting Taylor will be banned from her circle instantly, and the likes of Gigi [Hadid], Bella [Hadid] and Cara [Delevingne] are all doing as they're told."
What's more is that the outlet further contends, "One of their mutual friends is caught in the middle, and it's none other than Selena Gomez. The beauty 'refuses' to distance herself from Taylor, which could spell t-r-o-u-b-l-e. No one wants to get [on] a Kardashian's bad side!" Except Gomez isn't particularly close with the Kardashian family, and in fact already took Swift's side during the "Famous" dispute last year. She's not "caught in the middle." And more importantly, no one — not the Hadid sisters and not Delevingne — is taking orders from Jenner, nor is she even giving ultimatums in the first place.
A rep for the model tells Gossip Cop point-blank that the story is "made up." In fact, the publication actually has a history of trying to pit Jenner against her friends. Just two weeks ago, the tabloid seemingly fabricated an article claiming Jenner was texting Zayn Malik behind Gigi's back. And earlier this year, Gossip Cop busted a piece that ridiculously alleged Jenner and Bella were competing to see who could lose more weight. Perhaps OK! should be banned from writing about Jenner and her pals until it finds some real sources.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
