Remember back in 2016, a phone call between Taylor Swift and Kanye West over his controversial song Famous, started a Twitter trend #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty when Kim Kardashian West posted it? Turns out it was just an edited version of the phone call.
Now, four years later, the full, unedited version of the infamous “Famous” phone call between the two has finally leaked online. The leaked video appears to have proven Swift told the truth about her phone call with West over his controversial song Famous.

In the footage which has been shared on Twitter, West can be seen informing Taylor he is writing a song about her and asked her if she could promote the song by tweeting it out. West tells her: ‘It has a very controversial line at the beginning of the song about you.’ Later he asked Swift she sounded sad, where she questioned of the lyrics were ‘mean’, to which he reassured her he didn’t think they were. He later went on to explain the actual lyric: ‘To all my Southside n***as that know me best / I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex.’ Swift laughed it off and said, “That’s not mean.”
There is no mention West would call her a ‘b***h’ or suggest he ‘made her famous’ during the phone call. In a separate clip which is circulating on Twitter which appears to be from the same call, Swift tells West:’I [sold] a full 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened.’ It is believed she is referencing her album Fearless and West’s stage-invasion when she was honoured for Video of the Year at the AMAs.
Soon after the leaked video was all over, Swift’s army of fans known as ‘Swifties’ started the trending hashtags #TaylorToldTheTruth, #KanyeWestPartyIsOver, #TaylorWasRight. Take a look at some of the tweets below.
Kanye West did NOT make Taylor Swift famous. She sold 7m+ of her Fearless album before the moment that Kanye, a grown 32 year old man, ran up on stage and stole the mic from a 19 year old Taylor. I’m glad to know she called him on it. #KanyeWestIsOverParty pic.twitter.com/uD2txAYpb5

I don’t want just a notes app apology. I want a video explaining why they manipulated, targeted, bullied and harassed a kind woman into going into a very dark, emotional place to the point she isolated herself, drank a lot and felt like her career was over. #KanyeWestIsOverParty

I’m not about cancel culture, etc, but Kim & Kanye have had FOUR years to apologize to Taylor. They haven’t. They saw how the world treated her & watched the effects of something THEY weren’t telling the truth over.
Tells me ALL I need to know about the kind of people they are.

So where's the line I MADE THAT BITCH FAMOUS??? At least we all know Kanye and Kim are frauds before we die of coronavirus. https://t.co/QIg0BQoPnB

.@KimKardashian I don’t know why the hell you’re liking a tweet that says the video showed nothing new. Taylor said she didn’t know about the "I made that bitch famous" line and Kanye didn’t mention it to her. And that leaked video proves it – stop acting like a clown. You’re 40.

TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trended because Kimye recorded a phone call and edited it to target, bully and mass attack Taylor Swift. #KanyeWestIsOverParty is trending because the full phone call leaked proving Kimye lied about everything.
THEY. ARE. NOT. THE. SAME.
