Khloe Kardashian sides with Kim and Kanye

Before Khloe Kardashian gave Chloe Grace Moretz the ultimate dig on Twitter on Sunday (17.07.16), the 39-year-old gave her opinion earlier that evening on the latest episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.
It was obvious the reality TV star would side with her sister, Kim Kardashian West and brother-in-law, Kanye West throughout the entire feud but she admitted in the episode that the rapper did the "right thing" by recording his conversation with Taylor.
She said: "I don't really feel like saying much because the Taylor Swift fans love her and I'm all for that and all I know is I saw the video, I've heard Taylor and I think that Kanye did the right thing. So please Taylor Swift fans don't kill me."

Ruby Rose comes to Chloe Grace Moretz' defence

Ruby Rose jumped to Chloe Grace Moretz' defence on Sunday (17.07.16) by hitting out at Khloe Kardashian after she posted a lewd photograph of a young woman, who was originally thought to be the 19-year-old actress suffering a bikini malfunction, on Twitter.
The 30-year-old actress said: "Yo Khloe I thought you were rad when I met you but this is awful and this is a 19 year old girl."

Chloe Grace Moretz gets dragged in

Chloe Grace Moretz took to her Twitter account on Sunday (17.07.16) to take a subtle swipe at Kim Kardashian West after her pal Taylor Swift became entangled in a feud with the reality TV star and her husband Kanye West over his song 'Famous'.
The 19-year-old 'Bad Neighbour 2' actress tweeted:
"Everyone in this industry needs to get their heads out of a hole and look around to realize what's ACTUALLY happening in the REAL world.
"Stop wasting your voice on something so petulant and unimportant."
Yet, an unimpressed Khoe Kardashian picked up on the digs and hit back with an extremely explicit photo of a woman - who was originally thought to be Chloe -dressed a skimpy bikini and with her bottom exposed, with a picture of Chloe in a similar bikini next to it.
The 32-year-old reality star wrote: "Is this the a hole you're referring to @ChloGMoretz??? (sic)"

"Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form.
"This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh. (sic)."
You tell 'em Selena!

July: Taylor's Twitter response

Not long after Kim's "character assassination" of Taylor Swift's reputation - the 'Bad Blood' hit-maker hit back on Twitter with a lengthy tweet explaining herself - and she has a point.
In the post captioned: "That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.".
She wrote: "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 b***h in front of the entire world.
"I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song.
"Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story is character assassination."

July: Kim shares video of Taylor saying 'Famous' is a 'compliment'

Jump to Sunday (17.07.16) where Kim Kardashian West shared the rumoured video footage of Taylor Swift approving the song 'Famous'.
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star posted the video to her Snapchat, which sees Taylor describing the lyrics lyrics as a "compliment".
To make matters worse the 26-year-old can be heard saying: "I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice.
"Even asking or seeing if I'd be OK with it. I just really appreciate it. I would never have expected you to tell me about one of the lines in your song.
"I mean, I don't think anybody would listen to that and be like, 'Oh, that's a real diss.' You gotta tell the story that way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it."
And to add fuel to the fire, the 'Blank Space' hitmaker went on to tell Kanye she would tell the media he had called her and things were fine between them.

June: Taylor did approve of 'Famous' lyrics

Fast forward to June when a report claimed that Taylor did, in fact, approve of the lyrics to Kanye West's track 'Famous'.
In an interview, the rappers spouse, Kim Kardashian West, weighed in on the feud where she branded the 'Blank Space' songstress a liar.
Taylor then hit back at the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star claiming she spoke with 'Yeezy' on the phone but did not approve of the lyrics.
To make things a little more interesting, rumours emerged there was a tape whereby Taylor approves of the lyrics existed.

Taylor 'cautions' Kanye West about 'Famous'

All the way back in February - before all the commotion kicked off - Taylor Swift allegedly "cautioned" Kanye West before he released 'Famous'.The 26-year-old singer warned the 'Bound 2' hitmaker about dropping the track, whereby he raps about a steamy session with the blonde beauty. He sings: "I made that b***h famous." and claims he made "that bitch famous." But Kanye called her to ask her to promote the song, although Taylor disputed this.A representative for Taylor told Billboard at the time: "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.' "

April: Kanye releases 'Famous'

Let's start by throwing it back to the release of the song 'Famou's by Kanye West, which is where all the drama stemmed from.
The track, which was released on April 1 this year and is the first on the rappers seventh studio album 'The Life of Pablo', sees Kanye rap about getting hot under the bed sheets with Taylor Swift and being the reason for her success.
He raps: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that b***h famous."
And after a huge amount of up-roar, a clip of Kanye's conversation with Taylor sees the blonde beauty give permission to use the line.
