Kim Kardashian Apparently Shades Taylor Swift Over Kanye West Forbes Cover
We’re all trapped in an entertainment Groundhog’s Day, forced to relive Taylor Swift and Kanye West‘s feud over and over again with no end in sight. Some fans think that Kim Kardashian West justed added some fuel to this long simmering fire with her post raising Kanye’s Forbes cover.
On Tuesday, Kim posted a note to her Instagram Story that highlighted how proud she is of Kanye for making the cover of Forbes this month. “It’s no surprise to anyone … that [Kanye] has been able to turn millions of dollars in debt into a billion-dollar empire in only four years,” she wrote. (In case you forgot, Kanye publicly announced that his attempts to break into the fashion industry had left him $53 million dollars in debt in 2016. So is Kim’s note the public musings of a proud wife … or a dig at the Kardashian-West family’s mortal enemy Taylor Swift?
Some fans seem to think that Kim intended to drag Taylor, who publicly called out Kanye’s sort-of manager Scooter Braun for bullying after he bought her former record label Big Machine Music (and the rights to the masters of all six of her previous albums). With that in mind, the part of her Instagram Story where Kim highlights the fact that Kanye has made his fashion labels a success “100% on his own terms while owning 100% of his business [sic]” does look a *little* like shade. Some Twitter fans definitely thought so.

For their part, Taylor Swift fans clapped back, noting that the singer has just been named as Forbes highest-paid entertainer of 2019, nabbing the top spot above both Kanye and Kylie Jenner.

Shade or no, we can bet that this feud isn’t going to end anytime soon. But if Taylor and Kanye are listening, we wouldn’t say no to a “You Need To Calm Down”-style reunion! You can both have your crowns!
