A passionate Kim Kardashian has revealed why she decided to trash Taylor Swift in that scandalous interview and, of course, it all comes down to having her husband's back.

The conversation takes place in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where Kourtney asked Kim why she got her claws out on the "Bad Blood" singer and 50 percent of Kimye replied:

"I never talk s--t about anyone publicly, especially in interviews. But I was just like, I had so had it. I just felt like I wanted to defend him in it because it's like, she legitimately, quote, says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet I'm gonna tell all the press. Like I was in on it.'"

As previously reported, Kim has claimed that Taylor Swift knew all about controversial lyrics about her in Kanye West's song "Famous." For those of you who have been spending your summer vacation under a nice smooth pebble, the lyrics in question read:

"I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”

Although Kim insists the conversation where Taylor agreed to the lyrics was recorded, TayTay's squad claims that they had no idea about the misogynistic rap until there was a listening party for The Life of Pablo.

Taylor then fired back by making blatant references to Kanye in her Grammy acceptance speech and calling him out for using her name to steal her thunder.

Kim added that she believed Taylor was simply dissing Kanye for attention and sympathy from her fans and alluded to the now infamous stage-invasion incident, she explained:

"And you know, [it's] just another way to play the victim. It definitely got her a lot of attention the first time."

The reality star also opened up about her feelings on how her husband is portrayed in the media and it turns out all of those negative column inches really effect her, she told Kourt:

"I feel like I've had it with people blatantly treating my husband a certain way, making him look a certain way; Kanye is always so honest and speaks his mind. And you know, when we were first dating, people would always talk s--t and he always had my back. At this point, I really don't give a f--k, so I'll do whatever to protect my husband."
