Just a few days after Taylor Swift released her song thanK you aIMee, which is rumoured to be about the singer’s long-held feud with Kim Kardashian, the reality star has seemingly responded by posting a photo with Karlie Kloss.

To wish her friend Derek Blasberg a happy birthday, Kim posted a series of photos on Instagram on Tuesday, including one of herself with Derek, Karlie and Khloe Kardashian.

Swifties were quick to notice that the photo appears to be a throwback taken in 2022, and they believe Kim posted it to get back at Taylor, who was once best friends with Karlie until a rumoured falling out.

“Kim Kardashian posting Karlie Kloss right now is truly fucking crazy oh my god,” one person posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

A Swiftie suggeste that Kim must be “big mad” about Taylor’s song if she is posting a photo with Karlie.

“Kim posted a picture with Derek and Karlie oh i am so seated,” one Swiftie wrote on social media.


Taylor and Kim’s feud traces back to 2016, after Kim leaked an abridged recording of a phone call of Taylor seemingly giving Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, then known as Kanye West, permission to release his song Famous, on which he raps about the Grammy winner: “I made that bitch famous.”

Taylor shot back and said Ye never told her about the “bitch” lyric, but still, the internet piled on Taylor, causing her to take a step back from the spotlight until she released her album Reputation in 2017.

Even though it’s been almost a decade, Taylor seemingly hasn’t let it go.

On her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, which was released last week, she includes a song called thanK you aIMee, which has three letters conveniently capitalised, leading fans to believe it’s about Kim Kardashian.

On Watch What Happens Live in 2019, Kim said she was “over it” and felt like everyone had “moved on” from the feud, but in a 2023 Time magazine article, Taylor opened up about how the leaked phone call took her “down psychologically”.

“[It was] an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar,” Swift said.

Neither Karlie nor Taylor has ever publicly acknowledged any kind of falling out, but fans have watched closely as the two, who once called themselves sisters, have distanced themselves.

And in 2021, Taylor released the song It’s Time To Go, which include the lyrics: “When the words of a sister come back in whispers / That prove she was not / In fact what she seemed, not a twin from your dreams / She’s a crook who was caught,” leading some fans to think Taylor was calling out her old friend.

Still, Karlie attended Taylor’s Eras tour last year in the Los Angeles area, but instead of watching from the VIP tent, where other celebrities, including Austin Butler, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Travis Kelce, were gathered, she was in the crowd with the non-famous Swifties.
