'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian-West, 35, has exposed pop singer Taylor Swift, 26, for lying that she did not know about Kanye West's infamous lyric on his song 'Famous'.

In the controversial song Kanye West rapped "For all my Southside niggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous." At the time the song was released Taylor Swift denied that she knew about the song and approved of the line contrary to Kanye West's earlier statement months ago that Swift knew about the line.

On Sunday night (Sunday, July 28, 2016) Kim Kardashian took to SnapChat to defend her husband and prove that Taylor Swift knew about the song before it was released. In the SnapChat footage Kanye West can be seeing asking Taylor Swift for permission to use the controversial line in the song. The Grammy award winning rapper and producer recited the lyric to her but left out the last line "I made that bitch famous."

Taylor Swift gave her consent and thanked Kanye West for letting her know about it before he released it. The footage of Kanye and Swift talking will be featured in an upcoming episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.

After the footage was released Taylor Swift received a huge backlash on social media which prompted her to release a statement via her Instagram page.

"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' 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 bitch' in front of the entire world.

"Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot 'approve' a song you haven't heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009" wrote Taylor Swift.

In the caption of the screenshot of her statement Taylor Swift said "That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet."

I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved” Kim Kardashian told GQ in defence of her husband. 

When Kanye West released the video to 'Famous' last month Taylor Swift was horrified by the video that has a wax figure of herself and other celebrities naked on a bed.
