What’s the old saying? The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Something like that right? Anyway, fresh off their respective weeks taking shots and calling out Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and the 1989 singer’s ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris found themselves wildin’ out together at Jennifer Lopez’s star-studded birthday bash in Las Vegas.
No doubt grasping the atomic levels of shade that they’d be tossing Swift’s way, the pair decided to take a time out of the festivities and pose for a picture. Maybe even more genius, neither person shared the photo on their respective social media platforms and utilized rapper French Montana as a go-between. A source told US Weekly that, “Kim and Calvin did talk and interact,” while noting that they were both, “Smiling and chatting for awhile.”

The shade didn’t end there either. Harris fired another subtle jab at his ex, and proved his “Team Kimye” bonafides earlier that day when he posted up a pair of videos to his Snapchat showing him lip syncing to Kanye’s verse on ScHoolBoy Q’s latest single, “THat Part.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month, you’re probably aware that both Harris and Kardashian have been at war with Swift for different reasons lately. Kim took issue with Taylor lying about her husband not calling her up and asking for her approval to use a risque lyric on “Famous.” When Swift subsequently refused to back off of her claim, Kardashian then flooded her Snapchat with videos of said conversation as proof of her deception.
On the other end, Harris grew incredibly upset when Swift revealed that she helped write his hit song with Rihanna called “This Is What You Came For.” The Scottish DJ later took to Twitter to say that the act was, “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 🤔.” Then, referencing her new romance with actor Tom Hiddleston, he added, “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do.”
Thus far, Swift’s reply has been limited to a single tweeted out picture of a note fighting back against Kardashian’s video.
