A mere two days after going Instagram official with new bestie Taylor Swift, Brittany Mahomes is starring in Kim Kardashian’s latest Skims campaign.
Ever since Taylor Swift began dating Travis Kelce, the 33-year-old pop star has been building friendships with the Kansas City WAGs, especially the former professional soccer player and wife of quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Not only has Brittany scored multiple invites to outings with Swift’s inner circle, but the pair even has a secret handshake! So imagine Swifties’ surprise when Mahomes popped up in the most recent Skims holiday campaign.
On November 9, Skims launched its 2023 holiday campaign starring the Mahomes family decked out in the brand’s cosiest fair. And while the Taylor Swift fandom can’t deny the cuteness factor going on in these photos, many were confused to see Mahomes team up with one of the figures who allegedly inspired Swift’s Reputation album.
Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian’s tumultuous feud began in 2016 when Kardashian’s then-husband Kanye West released the song “Famous,” featuring the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.” He later included a naked wax figure of Swift’s likeness in the music video, which Swift described as revenge porn.
When Swift made her displeasure with the “Famous” lyrics known publicly, Kardashian took it upon herself to release clips of a phone call between Swift and Ye that appear to show the “Bad Blood” singer giving the song her blessing. This caused a significant amount of backlash against Swift until 2020, when more leaked footage revealed Swift never heard the lyric calling her a bitch. According to BBC, Swift has said the experience “put me, my family, and my fans through hell for four years.”
Because of all this, many fans on TikTok can’t believe Mahomes agreed to partner with Kardashian’s shape-wear brand. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s super cute, but I am shocked,” one user said in a video. “I did not see this coming.” One fan responded to the video, writing, “Why are MY feelings hurt? Ugh. Really Brittany????”
