In the second verse, Swift sides with a woman whose husband has wronged her. He addresses the man, telling him she gave his wife the proof that he cheated.She had the envelope, where you think she got it from?
Now she gets the house, gets the kids, gets the pride
Picture me thick as thieves with your ex-wife
Swifties have speculated that this verse may be about her beef with Kanye West
over the rapper's "Famous
" lyrics and his divorce from Kim Kardashian. Though they agreed to joint custody of their four children, West has complained about not seeing them enough. She also kept their Hidden Hills mansion in California.
An alternative theory has this section about Swift's feud with Scooter Braun
after he gained control of her back catalog. The music industry megastar filed for divorce from ex-wife Yael Cohen in July 2021 in part because of his rumored infidelity. Swift comes into the equation as apparently Cohen tired of her husband's treatment of the pop superstar.
