Karlie Kloss is not taking sides in Taylor Swift’s feud with Kim Kardashian. She is making it clear in her new interview with the Sunday Times Style section.
The Victoria’s Secret model was asked a lot about her famous friend in her new interview, in a new report revealed by the Hamilton Spectator. The interviewer managed to mention Taylor Swift’s name every chance that person got. When Kloss was asked if she thinks Kim Kardashian is a “good person,” she didn’t want to rip the reality star.
“Ha…you know…I honestly… I… I…I think she’s been a lovely person to me in the past. Look, I really don’t know her that well,” Kloss, 24, sheepishly said in the interview.
Then, she went on to add that she’s not as close to Swift, 26, as most may think. Kloss added: “My closest friends, really, are my sisters and my mum.”

In case you forgot, Swift has been involved in a long-standing feud with both Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kanye West, 39, over his new track “Famous,” in which he name drops her and refers to her as “that b****.” Kardashian took to Snapchat to expose Swift with a series of videos showing the singer giving him permission over the phone.
She leaked the recorded conversation between the rapper and pop star in which she confirmed she knew about the song. Swift also gave West his approval to talk about them having sex. But, Swift hit back on Instagram and insisted that she never approved of the actual “that b****” line and that she never heard the finished song in full.
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that b****’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b****’ in front of the entire world.”
Meanwhile, Kloss praised her friend and their A-list squad, which includes the likes of Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Ruby Rose, among others.
“My friends are kind, caring, thoughtful people. I think that’s what draws everyone in the group together. We are all very supportive of each other. We’re a big network of really great friends who all have very international schedules and lives. We try to get together as much as possible, even if we’re all travelling in different places.”
Although the famous besties haven’t been together in some time, Swift and Nelly reportedly had a duet at Kloss’ birthday party earlier this month. Swift and Nelly were in the Hamptons to celebrate the model’s 24th birthday party. The singer was there in all her glory — and with her new curls.
Swift joined the 41-year-old rapper on stage in a black off-shoulder crop top and matching skirt with white tennis sneakers to perform the rapper’s song “Dilemma,” according to a report via Entertainment Weekly. Swift lip-synced Kelly Rowland’s part of the song and the two danced with each other as the crowd got excited.

Kloss turned 24 on Wednesday, Aug. 3. To celebrate, Swift took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of the two to celebrate her best friend’s big day.
“I LOVE YOU KARLIE! You’re such an exquisite person, always trying to make things better for others. Every day I’m inspired by how giving, loving, and thoughtful you are. Happy 24th Birthday!!! @karliekloss.”
Kloss and Swift have managed to make time for each other despite their busy schedules. And, according to Billboard, Kloss also recently shared a photo on social media of her looking out to a beautiful sunset, a bouquet of sunflowers, and Swift on her iPad screen.
“When you’re halfway around the world & your best friend still finds a way to celebrate 24 with you @taylorswift,” the model wrote in her tweet.
