Kim Kardashian is putting in her two cents in the ongoing feud between her husband, Kanye West, and pop star Taylor Swift.

The reality star called out Swift in a new interview with GQ magazine saying the singer knew about West's now-infamous line.

"I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," West raps in "Famous." "Why? I made that b---ch famous."

West was highly criticized for his lyrics at the time and Swift told ET at the time that West did not call her for approval. Her rep said Swift "cautioned [West] about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that b---ch' famous.'"

Kardashian went on to say that Swift and several "respected people in the music business" like producer Rick Rubin knew of the conversation.

"I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden," Kardashian told GQ. "It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this [song], and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’ And I’m like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."

West's wife went as far as to claim there was a tape of the conversation with Swift. She said West and Swift had no further contact outside of “maybe an attorney’s letter [Swift] sent saying, 'Don't ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.'"

GQ reached out to Swift's rep for comment before publication. She told the mag, "Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West."

West's team told GQ that the conversation was filmed but "declined to provide further proof."

The feud between Swift and West began in 2009 when the rapper famously interrupted the pop star's MTV Music Awards acceptance speech. They appeared to have patched things up after six years when Swift presented West with MTV'S Video Vanguard Award.
