Kris Jenner launches defence of Taylor Swift

Kris Jenner launches defence of Taylor Swift

Kris Jenner thinks Taylor Swift is "lovely".

The 60-year-old showbiz matriarch has come out in support of the under-fire 'Blank Space' hitmaker, but she admitted she doesn't know if Taylor's burgeoning relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston is entirely authentic.

Kris said: "I don't know any of the details about her relationship or any of that, but she's lovely and I'm sure just like anybody else, when you date somebody in this town, everything becomes a photoshoot and there are people following you around and taking pictures."

The reality TV star admitted "only Taylor and whoever she's with knows what's going on in that relationship".

However, Kris admitted she has sympathy for Taylor given the amount of interest in her personal life.

She told the 'Kyle & Jackie O' radio show: "Like anybody else, it's just like my girls, I want everybody to find whatever makes them happy.

"When you're young or dating and you have a very public life, it's got to be really hard. She has an amazing family and a wonderful mom and she's just trying to navigate, trying to date in this public eye just like everybody else."

Kris' words of support come as her daughter Kim Kardashian West and son-in-law Kanye West are currently feuding with the chart-topping star.

Taylor is apparently upset at Kanye for his depiction of her in the 'Famous' music video, as well as the lyrics in the song in which he calls her a "b***h".

Kanye raps: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that b***h famous."

The duo fell out in 2009 after Kanye interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech for a gong at the MTV Video Music Awards, claiming Beyonce was more deserving of the accolade.
