Their bad blood stems from strings of public incidents that started at the 2009 MTV VMAs. Back in the VMAs, West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech, claiming that Beyoncé deserved the award instead.

That moment made major headlines in the media, leading to significant backlash against the rapper whereas the Amsterdam star received support from the public and celebrities alike. 

However, he has already apologized for the same multiple times but things went bad again due to several other incidents, in particular West’s Famous song. Following its release, the singer and her representatives claimed that she did not approve of those derogatory lyrics.

However, Swift’s rep insisted that a phone call did happen in which Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do” via PEOPLEIn response to the controversy, she released her 2017 album, Look What You Made Me Do which many implied was her answer to the ex-couple. Since then, the trio has continued to reference their relationship on several occasions.
