Taylor Swift’s childhood BFF Abigail Anderson has come to the singer’s defence.
On Monday evening, Abigail launched into a Twitter rant, slamming Kanye West and Kim Kardashian after the reality star sparked an internet frenzy by sharing the singer and rapper’s phone conversation, which Kim claims shows the squeaky-clean pop star approving the controversial lyrics to Kanye’s song Famous.
“Lord, hear my prayers. … I pray God helps your daughter understand, that despite how many times she’ll hear daddy reference all women as ‘b**ches,’ she isn’t one,” Abigail wrote in a series of now deleted tweets.
“I pray she understands her father actually IS faithful to her mother, despite all the adulterous comments she will hear her father making. … I pray that she will understand ‘adultery and b**ches’ are just daddy’s form of art and not to worry because not every man thinks like him.… Lastly, I pray for forgiveness. May God forgive you & your wife for doing to others the very things you pray are NEVER done to your daughter.”
Abigail later said she deleted her tweets, writing: “For the record, I usually delete my tweets once the death threats start rolling in…nothing more or less than that. #MovingOn.”
Kim posted footage of Kanye and Taylor on the phone, with the 38-year-old rapper reading her the lyric “For all my Southside n****s that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex”.
In response, Taylor could be heard saying: “It’s like a compliment.”
Kanye reassured the singer he wanted her to “feel good” about the song.
He said: “What I give a f**k [about] is you as a person, and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good.”
