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."
I will not allow the media to misconstrue my words. Taylor has always had my back and I will always have hers.
Earlier this month, Swift commemorated Kloss' 24th birthday with an adorable selfie she posted to Instagram, sharing in the caption, "I LOVE YOU KARLIE! You're such an exquisite person, always trying to make things better for others. Every day I'm inspired by how giving, loving, and thoughtful you are. Happy 24th Birthday!!!"
Swift also helped her best friend ring in her special day at a wild party in the Hamptons where the "Blank Space" singer joined rapper Nelly on stage for a performance of his hit single, "Dilemma." Check out the video below to see more.
