Kris Jenner ‘doubts’ Taylor Swift is faking her relationship with Tom Hiddleston


Asking Kris Jenner if a gossip story feels fake is like asking Donald Trump about whether too much gold looks tacky: there’s a lack of perspective, really. I don’t know what possessed Aussie radio personalities Kyle & Jackie O to ask Kris Jenner about Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, but it happened. Kris was doing a phone interview with the Aussie radio show and – perhaps because Aussies are obsessed with The Glorious Tiddlebanging – Kris fielded some questions about Tiddles. Keep in mind that Kris’s favorite daughter is now firmly anti-Swift, even going so far as to publicly drag Swifty in GQ and in this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But Kris thinks Tay-Tay is “lovely,” and Kris thinks Tiddles is real.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s whirlwind romance has Kris Jenner’s stamp of approval! During an interview with Australian radio station Kyle & Jackie O this morning, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch was asked if she thinks Hiddleswift’s relationship is a publicity stunt.

“I would doubt that,” Kris said. “I don’t know any of the details about her relationship or any of that, but she’s lovely and I’m sure just like anybody else, when you date somebody in this town, everything becomes a photo shoot and there are people following you around and taking pictures. I think that only Taylor and whoever she’s with knows what’s going on in that relationship. Like anybody else, it’s just like my girls, I want everybody to find whatever happiness that makes them happy. I think when you’re young and you’re dating and you have a very public life, it’s got to be really hard.”

Kris continued to gush over the Grammy-winning singer, whose ongoing feud with Kanye West is the subject of this Sunday’s new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “She’s great and I wish her the very best,” Kris added. “She has an amazing family and a wonderful mom and she’s just trying to navigate, trying to date in this public eye just like everybody else.”

[From E! News]

Is Kris Jenner trying to broker a lasting peace between the Kardashian-West faction and the Swifty faction? It’s worth noting that Kris said this to E! News before Kim dropped the receipts on Snapchat on Sunday night, and she said this before the episode of KUWTK aired in which Kris recommended that Kim merely call Taylor Swift and work through the issues. My guess is that Kris Jenner does not want the family to go toe-to-toe with Taylor. Plus, I think Kris’s gut is telling her that Tiddles is not “fake” per se, but merely a contractual situation?

    Betcha Kris put Kim up to this whole thing.

  2. Melody says:

    Damage control: Kim’s bomb scared away other celebs that Kris wanted business with.

    • Div says:

      Agree. I know everyone is dragging Taylor (and some of it is deserved) but wiretapping someone without their consent is a big f*cking deal and will probably scare off celebs that they hope to keep networking with for their show. Media/social media might be hyperventilating over this feud in general and not focusing that much on the wiretapping thing…but celebs who are image conscious will definitely remember.

      • Noname says:

        Like i posted on another site.. I imagine Jay-Z is wondering how much of his phone calls with Kanye are “private” and I would be worried if I was Kanye. He’s a rapper, he considers himself an artist but no one is going to want to collaborate with him if they suspect he is recording every bit of their dealings.

        It’s why I think this will hurt Kanye more in the long run.

      • Naya says:

        Every single album Jay Z has done since I started buying records has been accompanied with a bts documentary. He also famously makes one to accompany each tour. Beyonce does the same as does Rihanna. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find artists of that fold that arent accompanied by a dicumentarian as they work. What Kanye was doing is hardly novel. Notice also that none of Kanyes collaborators have given any indication at all that they are troubled by his releasing the documentary footage. Pharrell for instance has staked his position against that vindictive woman.

        If anything, their fear would be that her snake ways will one day be turned on them or artists that they are friends with. Their concern would be to see a megalomaniac tamed and a person who she has unfairly tarnished be vindicated.

        Besides, TMZ is saying they have heard the full tapes and Taylor doesnt have a leg to stand on. Not only was she aware that she was on speaker with a room full of producers, she spoke with them. Enough with the “pure blonde princess under attack” narrative.

      • Luca76 says:

        Yeah I think at the end of the day celebs will actually rally around Taylor for that reason. There is expected to be a cone of silence around celebrities and the idea that a persons reputation can be destroyed by releasing footage would be anathema to true A listers.

      • Coco says:

        My ex worked on one of his album documentaries and EVERYONE he works with knows he records EVERYTHING.

      • Noname says:

        @Naya- Where are you getting the pure blonde princess is under attack narrative from? I know you dislike Taylor Swift intensely but I am not sure where it is I say, oh poor Taylor.

        Yes, other artists record stuff but they also have to get releases before they release it. Neither Kanye or Kim did that here & that is what I am talking about.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Exactly what I came here to say- which suggests Taylor may have a leg to stand on.

  3. K.C. says:

    She said Taylor is LOVELY? WHAT? I try to know as little about this family as possible, but I assumed she’d be Team Kimye all the way.

    • Erinn says:

      Oh my god… this was the last thing I’d have expected to come out of this mess. But the gossip gods have shone down upon us, and here is Pimp Momma Kris, deigning to comment on Tiddles.

      And out of EVERY single person in this mess, Kris is the most … normal sounding. What the hell is happening?

    • Flowerchild says:

      So she normal sounding because she “team” Taylor. 🤔😂😆

      I’m supried you believe this BS then again I’m not Kis is the Queen of fake she would know what real is if it hit her in the face.

  4. FingerBinger says:

    Taylor Swift’s and Tom Hiddleston’s relationship is as real Kim and Kris Humphries was.

  5. pikawho? says:

    Anybody else think its weird that none of the Kardashians have tweeted that picture of Taylor Swift next to the swastika shirt guy? That is the most scandalous photo of her of all time, its ripe for the picking. Or did Swift’s team bury that story too well?

  6. Dee says:

    This seems very strange. If my mother publicly complimented the girl I was feuding with, I’d be fuming. I understand what you’re trying to do kris but you’re a mother first. You could have just left it at “no, I don’t think their relationship is fake”

  7. Luca76 says:

    People used to say Kimye was fake not so long ago. I think what people don’t get is just because a couple courts the paparazzi and likes attention doesn’t mean there isn’t something real behind the scenes.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Spencer and Heidi immediately came to mind. I also think that’s what’s going on with these two. Sure, they like each other, but they like fame-whoring more.

  8. A says:

    PMK is doing damage control. She put Kimye up to this whole mess. So now she is trying to minimize it…

    • Stahp says:

      What mess…? Exposing Taylor as a liar? Kim and Kanye can never look as bad as Taylor does right now especially after that embarrassing Grammy speech.

  9. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    The problem isn’t that it might be fake.

    I’m sure on Taylor’s side of things it’s as real as any of her romances where she falls super hard and fast and buys a house across the street from a teenager. I’m also sure on Tom’s side maybe there might be some attraction and liking different aspects of Taylor.

    The problem is they painted themselves as the most lovely loving in lovey-lovey-ness EVAH couple with just 3 weeks under their belt. That just feels fake and weird. How many other couples quietly date and no one says a peep. With Tom and Taylor we have them literally strolling down the beach with his mum exchanging heartsick looks. It’s like a living William Sonoma catalogue.

    If one of them was holding a spatula I’d be debating buying it right now in hopes I too could stroll down the beach in quaint perfectly controlled harmony.

  10. Lilacflowers says:

    Simon Pegg and Karl Urban have also commented. When will Kylie, Taylor’s cats, and Tim McGraw weigh in on all of this? Nobody can be left out!

    • Grace says:

      Simon Pegg and Karl Urban commented on Tom’s new relationship??? What did I miss when I was on holiday?

      I typed ‘new’ but thinking it felt like ages already.

  11. Miss Jupitero says:

    I saw that! Why on earth would they be commenting? Isn’t dignified silence best?

  12. deevia says:

    PMK is truly brilliant. Everyone expects her to say one thing and she surprises everyone with the opposite. This is not damage control at all. Why speaks the truth and let people pile on you as a convenient target when many people already are aware of the truth? This way she came out smelling like roses and Taylor fans have nothing to grab on to. People have been saying Kim is talentless and stupid while Kanye is crazy. But even Pepsico exectutive have been admiring their marketing game (Google it) when addressing the ENTIRE advertising industry’s lack of competence. Kim got GAME and the fact that Kanye can stay with the whole clan for that long is because he’s got as much GAME. Taylor antics are too obvious (even when she got the upper hand in pristine image) so it’s no surprise she got PLAYED when things go down – her team can only threaten people they can storm over NOT a couple that the public have gone RAMPAGED on every day for many years. I’d go so far as to say TAYLOR tried to have the goodwill and sympathy that Britney Spears has but she is no Britney. Britney is the true down-to-earth girl from rag to riches while Taylor’s image is bought and paid for by her financial-executive parents (I just found out they bought a record company to launch her career). Even Briney cracked under pressure of her own wholesome reputation at one point. Taylor’s formula is just as old as the industry; there’s nothing genius about it.

    Would not trust PMK as far as I could throw her! PMK was also “friendly” with Selena while Kylie and Kendull kept inserting themselves in the middle of her relationship with JB, remember? Now she wants to be Taylor’s “friend”? Make no mistake, these women have no real friends. They are all just “opportunities for publicity”, not friends.

  14. Naya says:

    Good cop, bad cop. Dont for a second think that Kris wouldnt personally orchestrate the destruction of anybody who threatened her favorite money maker.

    • Alex says:

      Exactly and again this was BEFORE the snapgate. Plus on the show she tried to get Kim to call Taylor and Kim was like “nope we are beyond that”. So this isnt surprising.
      Best believe the claws will be OUT for Kim. She’s a shrewd business woman as well…don’t forget who got the contract from Vivid

  15. Goia says:

    Twisted group of people, all of them.

  16. Tessa says:

    Never mind that! U.K. Mags are reporting PMK is going to get knocked up by her courtisan/ toy boy/ bodyguard
