Now, having access to the full transcript of the conversation, many have leapt to Taylor Swift's defence, slamming West and Kardashian-West for being sneaky about what parts of the audio they chose to release.

For the unversed, the freshly-leaked video shows an unedited phone call between the two nemeses as it shows Swift expressing her uneasiness about the lyric that was previously featured in a Kanye West song Famous.

"Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated into order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years ) ..." But the 42-year-old rapper failed to mention the controversial lyric "that b--" in the "I made that b-- famous" line that Swift reacted to when the song was eventually released.

Specifically, that she agreed to him using the line 'I made that b**** famous'. "I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying". "I'm so confused right now".

Soon after the video of the call was leaked, #KanyeWestIsOverParty was trending on Twitter with many fans siding with Taylor over this whole ordeal.

When it comes to testing medical staff for Covid-19, Mr Hancock said he hoped this would take place "as soon as possible". The number of positive tests went up by 967, to 6,650 - although the true figure is thought to be more than 300,000.

The leak which occurred this weekend, allows listeners to hear the entire 25 minute conversation. "I feel like people would try to make it negative if it came from me".

The new clips seem to corroborate Swift's claims that West didn't tell her the full lyrics of the song.

"I never would have expected you to tell me about a line in one of your songs", Swift tells him. "Like, it doesn't matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened".

Now, however, Taylor has made an overt statement about the call on Instagram, and she's using the drama to encourage people to donate to organizations providing relief and aid during the pandemic.

This is in keeping with Swift's original statement to New York Times reporter Jon Caramanica, via a spokesperson, from February 2016, when "Famous" was first released: "Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous'". For proof, look no further than this "Taylor Told the Truth" mood board, which Swift showed love to on Tumblr as well.
