The social media star is said to be scared that the singer is preparing to strike back on her new single after their explosive feud – that nearly resulted in court action – last year.
And their fans happen to agree with her.
Kim and her husband Kanye West sparked the biggest showbiz drama of 2016 when he released lyrics referring to the singer as a “b***h*” and the pair ganged up on Taylor in the press, releasing a tape recording that seemingly proved she ok’d the track.
The Bad Blood singer’s social media was then swamped with snake emojis from angry Kimye fans.
But after taking some time out of the spotlight, Taylor cleansed her social media – shedding her skin, you might say – and Kim has reportedly put two and two together and fears a backlash is looming on the horizon.
A source said: “One of the few people out there that is not very excited for Taylor Swift’s upcoming music is Kim Kardashian.
“She feels that she will be attacked along with Kanye in a future song over their past differences and she doesn’t want to deal with the fallout of a Taylor Swift song and what that does to people.”

I feel like this album won’t revolve much around Calvin but around the media, Kim, and Kanye. I’m ready for Taylor to fire back.

The 36-year-old beauty and her husband Kanye West were embroiled in a bitter feud with Taylor
over lyrics in the rapper’s ‘Famous’ track last year, in which he referred to the singer as a “b***h*”, and Kim now fears a backlash could be on the horizon.
Taylor has teased her new single by posting a picture of a snake on her Twitter account, prompting fans to speculate the record will be a diss track.
The insider told HollywoodLife.com: “[Kim] doesn’t want to be the focus of anything Taylor related, she hopes that her and Kanye dodge a bullet and Taylor ends up talking about others instead.”
Meanwhile, Taylor has kept a low profile since the feud and the breakdown of her highly publicised whirlwind romance with Tom Hiddleston.
