Are Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift beefing? Explaining the faux #squad drama – USA TODAY
Karlie Kloss is officially caught in Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Kim K’s complicated web.
This week, Kloss commented on Twitter about the rumored bad blood brewing between her and her BFF, sparked by comments she made about Kardashian earlier this week.
Kloss is better known for Instagramming her #squad hangouts and hosting Taylor for special birthday-party performances than for picking fights online. So what sparked this new drama? The answer lies with Kimye, as the couple’s beef with Swift over Famous‘ incendiary lyrics continues to churn.
Earlier this week, Kloss gave an interview to the UK’s Times, and was asked her thoughts on Swift’s very public sparring with the Kardashian-Wests.
“I think she’s been a lovely person to me in the past,” Kloss said, seemingly trying to keep things diplomatic. “Look, I really don’t know her that well.”
Cue the news stories about Kloss’ alleged betrayal of Swift, asking whether their friendship was in trouble and why the singer’s other famous friends haven’t jumped to her defense against Kanye and Kim. But Kloss wasn’t having it, clarifying her comments about Kardashian in a pair of tweets.
The supermodel sent a clear message to fans, and websites, looking to stir up more Swift/Kimye drama: keep her name out of your mouth.
