Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are confused as to why their long-running feud with Taylor Swift has been reignited amid a global pandemic, a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE.
It all started on Friday night, when extended footage of the rapper’s infamous phone call with Swift about his “Famous” lyrics leaked online — four years after Kardashian West originally shared an edited portion of the phone call to her Snapchat. Swift and Kardashian West have both spoken out about the leaked footage since, further stirring up debate on social media.
“Kim and Kanye are both just asking ‘Why?'” the source says. “They seem pretty baffled by the whole thing. Like why rehash, why now and why at all? It doesn’t make sense to them.”
“They don’t think it reflects on them negatively,” the source continues. “Kim only addressed the situation because people keep talking about it.”
In the newly leaked footage, West, 42, is heard asking Swift to release his new song on her Twitter account. “So my next single, I wanted you to tweet it … so that’s why I’m calling you. I wanted you to put the song out,” he tells Swift on the phone.
Swift, however, turns downs West’s proposal, saying: “You know, the thing about me is like, anything that I do becomes a feminine think-piece, and if I launch it … it’ll be less cool ‘cause I think if I launch it, it adds this level of criticism, ‘cause having that many followers and having that many eyeballs on me right now, people are just looking for me to do something dumb or stupid or lame.”
