Although West and Swift made up following their memorable encounter at the 2009 MTV VMA awards — where he crashed the stage and declared Swift unworthy of her Best Female Video honor — the bad blood between the two was back after West released the single "Famous" in February.

In the song, West raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that b--- famous."

Not surprisingly, Swift wasn't happy about that line.

But according to West, she'd allegedly OK'd the lyrics herself beforehand.

Team Taylor denied it, saying in a statement, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message."

But on Sunday, Kardashian came to her husband's defense by posting a video of the call between the two on Snapchat.

(You can see the clip for yourself, but be warned, there's some not-safe-for-work language in it.)

During their conversation, West read a portion of the lyrics to Swift — the "sex" line, in particular.

And Swift's response? She saw it as a "compliment."

After telling West that she felt she was "this close to overexposure," he assured her that the line would be "a really cool thing to have."

"I know! I mean it's like a compliment kind of," she said, adding that it was "sweet" of him to even ask her about it. "It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way, and I really appreciate you telling me about it. That's really nice."

As for his claim in the song — that he made her famous with the VMA incident — she didn't seem to mind that either.

"Like you obviously didn't know who I was before that," she said. "It doesn't matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn't know who I was before that."

West said, "I just felt I had a responsibility to you as a friend. I mean, thanks for being so cool about it."

But Swift isn't feeling cool about any of it now.

That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

In a response to it all on Instagram, she said the call was "secretly" recorded, adding that Kardashian's reveal missed the bigger point.

"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song?" she asked. "It doesn't exist because it never happened. You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called 'that bitch' in front of the entire world."

Swift also stated that "being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination."

As for often-outspoken West, he hasn't commented on the latest twist in the ongoing feud — yet.
