Here’s Proof That Taylor Swift’s Ex-Boyfriend Is Actually Team Kanye West
Is this Calvin Harris’ way of throwing shade?
The Scottish DJ, who broke up with Taylor Swift just two weeks ago, seemingly threw some support for his ex’s nemesis after his former girlfriend was spotted kissing actor Tom Hiddleston. Harris, 32, was spotted hitting a local gym in Los Angeles on Thursday (June 16, 2016) wearing — gasp! — a pair of Kanye West’s Yeezy sneakers.
As if to prove that it wasn’t accident, Harris then swapped out his grey kicks for a pair of black ones designed by the rapper the next day.
Recently, West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, accused Swift of purposefully trying to play the victim to make the emcee look bad. Claiming that the “Bad Blood” singer “totally approved” of West’s infamous lyrics in “Famous,” in which he called Swift a “bitch” and claimed he made her famous, before the song’s release, Kardashian said, “I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.”
She continued, “It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’ And I’m like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.”
A rep for Swift later said, “Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
Previously, those around Swift refused to support West after he released “Famous” and rid themselves of all things Yeezy. Swift’s brother, Austin, most notably threw out his own pair of Yeezy sneakers after hearing the track.
Clearly, Harris didn’t do the same.
