Inside Taylor Swift's bitter feud with Kim Kardashian: A look at the pair's ... trends now

Taylor Swift has reignited her explosive feud with Kim Kardashian by slamming the reality star in a new interview, adding yet another twist to their years-long dispute.

The singer claimed that her dispute with the star 'took her down psychologically' and forcing her into hiding before branding her and her ex-husband Kanye West 'trash.'

This is just the latest development in Taylor and Kim's ongoing row, which began back in 2016 when Kim released a recorded phone call claiming that Taylor gave consent for Kanye to pen vulgar lyrics about her.

Since then both stars have made various jibes and references to the row, with Taylor particularly taking aim in her 2017 album Reputation.

So, as fans wait to see whether Kim will respond to Taylor's latest words, MailOnline takes a look-back at a feud that has gripped the world of showbiz.

Taylor and Kim's longtime row actualyl began thanks to the singer's dispute with Kanye in 2009, when he famously stormed the stage at the VMAs when she won the prize for Best Female Video.

A furious Kanye took to the stage to declare that Beyonce should have won the prize, telling Taylor: 'Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you. I'mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.'

The moment was quickly slammed by furious viewers, as Taylor was then unable to finish her acceptance speech, though Beyonce later invited her on-stage while she accepted the Video Of The Year prize.

After tying the knot with Kanye in 2014, Kim was proudly at his side when he received the coveted Vangard Award at the VMAs.

Appearing to show their feud was quashed, it was Taylor who presented him with the prize, and the pair appeared to have brought an end to their row.

However, in a later interview, Taylor noted that this was far from the case, as Kanye declared on stage that she was asked to present the award 'for ratings,' and she refused to speak to him backstage.

She told Rolling Stone: 'I'm standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body. 

'I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk s**t. And I was so upset. He wanted me to come talk to him after the event in his dressing room. I wouldn't go.'

The track sparked a huge backlash from Taylor's fans, and Kanye furiously defended himself in a now-deleted tweet that said: 'I called Taylor and had an hour-long convo with her about the line, and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings.'

Taylor's representative then hit back, telling People: '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. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that b***h famous.'''

After rapping the line, West can be heard saying: 'I think this is a really cool thing to have.'

Swift responds: 'I know, it's like a compliment, kind of. Yeah, I mean, what's dope about the line is it's very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice.'

Taylor became the subject of furious backlash when the video was shared online, with many accusing her of being a snake

After Kim's post made her the subject of multiple 'snake' memes, Taylor stood by her version of events in a furious social media statement.

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

The statement read: 'Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b****' 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 b****' in front of the entire world.'

'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.'

After hitting back, Taylor took a year-long break from the limelight, and only returned when she released her new single Look What You Made Me Do, in 2017.

2019 - Taylor hits out at Kanye's former agent Scooter Braun

After several years of relative silence between Taylor and Kanye, the star furiously took to Instagram to hit out at celebrity manager Scooter, who had purchased the rights to her masters in 2019.

In her post she once again took a pointed dig at Kanye and his 2016 track Famous.

She wrote: 'Some fun facts about today's news: I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world.

'All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years. Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated an illegally recorded snippet of a phone call to be leaked and then Scooter got his two clients together to bully me online about it.

'Or when his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge porn music video that strips my body naked.'

2020 - Taylor addresses the fallout AGAIN in her new song 

In her track Miss Americana, Taylor noted that she felt 'alone and bitter' during her fall-out with Kanye and Kim, adding that she was branded 'wicked and evil'.

She said: 'When people decided I was wicked and evil and conniving and not a good person, that was the one I couldn't really bounce back from, because my whole life was centred around it.'

'I felt really alone, I felt really bitter, I felt sort of like a wounded animal lashing out. I figured I had to reset everything.'
