Justin Bieber has appeared to take a dig at Taylor Swift in a recent Instagram post following the singer's beef with Kanye West.

The pair recently fell out after Swift claimed to have not known about controversial lyrics that featured in the rapper's song 'Famous' prior to its release. West's track includes the lines: "I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous."

However, Kim Kardashian leaked a phone call last month showing Swift seemingly enthusing over the first lyric, while not being informed about the latter line. The dispute led to an online backlash against Swift, which some arguing that the incident may have killed her career.

Now Bieber has waded in, posting a screenshot of himself on a FaceTime call with West, along with the caption: "Taylor Swift what up". See that picture beneath.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Swift can't sue West and Kardashian over the leaked phone call.

Despite the call seemingly leaking without Swift’s permission, it has emerged that local California privacy laws mean that Swift will be unable to take any action against West or his wife.

Swift appeared unaware that her conversation with West was being taped, and California law states that releasing “confidential communication” online is illegal. However, that law does not apply if the conversation “may be overheard” – and the full conversation between West and Swift sees other parties, including leading producer Rick Rubin join the couple’s discussions.
