Kim Kardashian ‘STILL hasn’t apologised to Taylor Swift’ over Kanye West b***h phone call… after the songstress insisted KUWTK star ‘took her down psychologically’ in feud
Kim Kardashian is reportedly yet to apologise to Taylor Swift for the scandal, in which the former leaked a phone call of the latter talking to Kanye West.
The singer, 33, who has been named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year, has been locked in a dispute with the couple, since Kim’s then-husband Kanye wrote a 2016 song to include vulgar lyrics about Taylor.
He claimed Taylor had consented to the reference but, after denying the claim, Kim also weighed in and released what the pop star described as ‘an illegally recorded phone call’ between the pair which she claimed proved otherwise.
TMZ report that Taylor would be willing to accept a public apology from Kim, 43, although she is staunchly refusing to say sorry to the star.
In the interview accompanying her TIME accolade, Taylor slammed Kim for ‘taking her down psychologically’ and forcing her into hiding during their long-running feud – while subtly branding the reality star and her ex-husband ‘trash’.

Taylor said that the public fallout said it felt like ‘a career death,’ adding: ‘Make no mistake — my career was taken away from me.’
Discussing the aftermath and the brutal toll that it took on her wellbeing, Taylor said: ‘You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar.’
‘That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before. I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls.’
Although she didn’t elaborate on where she moved to, Swift began dating British actor Joe Alwyn in late 2016, and it was widely rumored that she had rented a home in London in order to spend more time with him.
During that period, she all but vanished from the public eye, something that she says came as a result of the Kardashian and West fallout.
‘I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.’
Most of the pop icon’s next album Reputation, released in 2017, was aimed at her experience during the ordeal.
But the abundance of snake imagery used in veiled reference to mom-of-four Kim, now 43, only reignited the furor.

‘I thought that moment of backlash was going to define me negatively for the rest of my life,’ she explained.
Yet, in the years that followed, Taylor’s career has only gone from strength to strength – while many of her adversaries have suffered major setbacks, including Kanye.’
The rapper, 46, recently lost a slew of endorsement deals after uttering a series of anti-Semitic remarks.
Elaborating on how life in the limelight can be delicate, Taylor added: ‘Nothing is permanent. So I’m very careful to be grateful every second that I get to be doing this at this level, because I’ve had it taken away from me before.
‘There is one thing I’ve learned: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things. Keep making art.’
However she took another swing and Kardashian, West, and anyone else who she believes has tried to stifle her success, remarking: ‘Trash takes itself out every single time.’
‘But I’ve also learned there’s no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies,’ she said. ‘Trash takes itself out every single time.’

Suddenly, in the middle of her acceptance speech, Kanye jumped on the stage, grabbed the microphone out of her hands and bellowed: ‘Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!’
In a bid to diffuse the tension, Beyonce later called Taylor up on stage when she won Video of the Year for Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), and allowed the country music star a moment in the spotlight.
But the tension only continued when the father-of-four humiliated the star once again at the VMAs in 2015.
It appeared the pair were getting on as Kanye joked: ‘You know how many times they announced Taylor was going to give me the award ’cause it got them more ratings?’
