She’s copped her fair share of criticism on everything from overexposure to ex-boyfriends, but in a searingly honest column, the superstar has opened up about what really brought her down.

The feud between Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift shows no signs of ending.

In a new column for Elle magazine in the US, the pop megastar accuses Kardashian of launching an “online hate campaign” against her amid their very public 2016 falling out.

Without addressing her by name, the 29-year-old singer said she hit rock bottom after someone called her a “snake” on the internet, reports the New York Post.

“A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet,” Swift writes in the magazine’s April issue.

“The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life.”

Kardashian labelled Swift a snake in 2016 after her rapper husband, Kanye West, called Swift “that bitch” in his track Famous and Swift took him to task for it.

West insisted he got Swift’s approval, which she denied. Kardashian involved herself, releasing videos of phone conversations between the pair and suggesting National Snake Day was a holiday for Swift.

Swift told fans she considered quitting music altogether before reclaiming the snake motif for her sixth album, Reputation.

“I learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh,” Swift wrote.

“I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans.”

In January, Kardashian insisted there was no longer a feud between her and Swift. “I feel like we’ve all moved on,” she said in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

Does that mean things are kosher with Swift’s camp? Hardly.

“It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us,” Swift wrote, “but maybe all we’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.”
