Kim Kardashian and Calvin Harris were recently photographed together amid their ongoing tensions with Taylor Swift, leading some to speculate that the two celebrities were purposefully stoking the feud fires.
Over the weekend, the reality TV star and producer/DJ were photographed together at Jennifer Lopez’s 47th birthday bash in Las Vegas, where the singer has a headlining residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Harris also holds residencies at several Vegas nightclubs.
The photo, which also includes rapper French Montana and Lopez, shows Kardashian holding a birthday cake and Harris flashing a polite smile. Montana posted the pic on Instagram Sunday (July 24).
Kardashian added fuel to the fire by sharing a Snapchat of herself Friday night (July 22) rapping along to the now-infamous Swift-referencing line of West’s “Famous” at the Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM Grand hotel.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” West rapped on the track. “Why? I made that bitch famous. I made that bitch famous.”
Earlier this week, Harris also posted a video of himself lip-syncing to a Kanye song.
Over the past several weeks, Kardashian has been defending her husband, who says Swift approved the song during a recorded phone conversation prior to releasing it. Swift, however, says she didn’t know that the track would refer to her as a “bitch” and wouldn’t have approved it had she known.
Exes Harris and Swift aren’t on the best terms, either. After rumors started about Swift being involved in writing Harris’ Rihanna collab “This Is What You Came For,” it was revealed that she co-wrote the smash using a pseudonym in an effort to prevent their highly publicized romance from interfering with the music.
What started out as a juicy secret revealed, with Harris calling Swift an “amazing lyric writer,” quickly turned ugly when he went on a Twitter rant lashing out at Swift and her team for the “hurtful” way the news came out. “Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though,” he tweeted.
