Kim Kardashian is not refusing to let Taylor Swift “bully” Kanye West with “more diss tracks,” despite an entirely made-up webloid report. Gossip Cop can reveal the truth. We’re told it’s “false.”
As it was widely reported, Swift dropped her brand new track “Gorgeous” on Friday. Prior to its release, HollywoodLife posted a bogus article on its website about how the singer’s “arch enemy” was “ready and waiting” for Swift’s latest song, the third from her upcoming album Reputation, to be unveiled. According to the outlet, Kardashian is refusing to let Swift “bully” the rapper with another diss track, and as a result, “the reality star is on guard.” A so-called “source” is then quoted as saying, “Kim loves her man dearly and she refuses to let Taylor bully him or their family. He has slowed down a little and is not the same old Kanye that was always ready to fight on a moment’s notice.”
In bizarrely unnatural language, the bad blog’s questionable “insider” goes on to allege, “Kim is feeling fine, alert and she’s watching Taylor like a mama bear protecting her cubs. Kim will be listening closely as Taylor continues to release new music.” Concludes the website’s seemingly fake tipster, “Kim and Kanye were willing to let the first song slide, but if Taylor wants to pick another fight, Kim is ready for it.”
Let Gossip Cop explain what’s going on here. In the hours before “Gorgeous” was released, the aptly nicknamed HollywoodLies conveniently decided to post a fabricated Swift-related report, with the hope of carving out some online traffic. Given the website’s poor track record, we investigated the claim, and a rep for Kardashian confirmed our suspicions. “This is false,” her spokesperson told us on the record.
Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the site for manufacturing a bogus report about Swift and West’s alleged diss tracks. In August, shortly before “Look What You Made Me Do” was released, HollywoodLife wrongly claimed that West was prepared to record a “diss track” against Swift if she slammed him or Kardashian on her new album. Time, of course, has proven us right. West never retaliated with his own revenge song. As we’ve noted before, the online outlet likes to take actual events and twist them to peddle made-up stories.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
