“To be clear, the one problem I ever had across the scenario was that Taylor lied by her publicist who acknowledged that “Kanye by no means referred to as to ask for permission…’ They clearly spoke so I allow you to all see that. No person ever denied the phrase ‘bitch’ was used with out her permission.
“On the time once they spoke the track had not been absolutely written but, however as everybody can see within the video, she manipulated the reality of their precise dialog in her assertion when her crew stated she ‘declined and cautioned him about releasing a track with such a robust misogynistic message.’ The lie was by no means in regards to the phrase bitch, It was all the time whether or not there was a name or not and the tone of the dialog.
“I by no means edited the footage (one other lie) – I solely posted a number of clips on Snapchat to make my level and the total video that lately leaked doesn’t change the narrative.
“So as to add, Kanye as an artist has each proper to doc his musical journey and course of, identical to she lately did by her documentary.
“Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his private archive, nonetheless has by no means launched any of it for public consumption & the decision between the 2 of them would have remained non-public or would have gone within the trash had she not lied & compelled me to defend him.
This would be the final time I communicate on this as a result of truthfully, no person cares. Sorry to bore you all with this. I do know you might be all coping with extra severe and necessary issues.”

The decision has West first asking Swift if she could be prepared to “launch” the track on her personal social media accounts, earlier than he describes the content material to her.

The decision ends on an agreeable observe, with West telling her that he’ll ship her the monitor as quickly as he momentarily information it, and Swift urging him to ship it.
