Kim Kardashian is calling out Taylor Swift while defending her husband.

In the latest issue of GQ magazine, the 35-year-old reality star discussed the singer's beef with Kanye West following the release of his song "Famous," which opens with the lyrics, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous."

Swift and her squad did not react well to the song, taking to social media to condemn 'Ye for the lyrics. The country-turned-pop star even used her 2016 Grammy Awards acceptance speech to slam the rapper, reminding women to never let someone else ''undercut'' their success.

Now, Kim is saying T.Swift is only using the opportunity to "play the victim" when, in fact, she approved the song and the lyrics from the start.

"She totally knew that ["Famous"] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't," Kim told GQ of Swift's reaction to the song.  In fact, the reality star says there's "video proof" of Kanye's phone call with the singer, who "totally approved that [line]."

"I swear, my husband gets so much s--t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved," Kim said. "What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?" Kim insisted, again, that Swift gave him the go-ahead. "Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew."

Kim continued, "I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden…It was funny because [on the call] she said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.'"

Obviously, that's not what happened. Kim said, "I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."

Kim and Kanye have not spoken to Swift since the Grammy's. Kim explained, "Maybe an attorney's letter she sent saying, 'Don't ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.'"
