Karlie Kloss is standing up against tabloids she believes are trying to use her to generate more drama between her bestie Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian.

It all began on Sunday when the Victoria's Secret Angel sat down for an interview with the U.K.'s The Times, and was asked about the feud between the 1989 singer and the reality star.

In an attempt to maintain a semblance of neutrality in their social media war, Kloss was very diplomatic in her response, innocuously complimenting Kardashian and sharing, "I think she's been a lovely person to me in the past."

Of course, this comment was jumped on immediately by tabloids and rumor mills who began spinning the story into a new development of the Swift/Kimye feud.

On Sunday night, Kloss took to Twitter to set the record straight about her relationship with Swift, writing, "I will not allow the media to misconstrue my words. Taylor has always had my back and I will always have hers."

"And I will never be the girl that you can use to pit women against each other," Kloss continued in a following tweet. "That isn't me."
