Just how much bad blood is there between Kanye West and Taylor Swift?

An internet theory holds that Swift is intentionally releasing her upcoming album, “Reputation,” on Nov. 10 — the 10th anniversary of the day West’s mother, Donde West, died.

Nope, says Swift’s record label, Big Machine.

A label rep told BuzzFeed on Friday that “there is no correlation,” adding: “It is standard practice that releases come out on Fridays and we locked in this release date based on other Universal Music Group releases.”

But don’t worry, internet: You can still get your Swift v. West fix with plenty of hot takes speculating that her new song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” is all about him.
