Katy and Taylor were friendly with one another until 2014, when the country-turned-pop singer revealed her song Bad Blood was about another woman she was “straight-up enemies” with and fans realized it was Katy.

The two feuded for years until it came to an end in 2018, after Katy extended a literal olive branch, and then they appeared together in Taylor’s You Need To Calm Down music video.

Now, the American Idol judge, who’s currently expecting her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom, spoke with Capital Breakfast about rumors claiming the singers are actually “ninth cousins.”

Upon hearing that theory for the first time, Katy responded: “Well, we fight like cousins.”

She said it was all just “fan fic[tion],” but host Roman Kemp said the fan story he read had a lot of links and that they supposedly use a “heritage site” that showed the familiar connection.

With her interest piqued, the 35-year-old replied: “Wow. I’m going to have to ask her if this is true, or if we should get blood tests together.”

Taylor and Katy might go from having bad blood to being blood relatives, but it will all just remain a theory unless the starlets follows through with getting tests done.

Between 2014 and 2018, fans were split between Katy and Taylor after they made many cryptic digs at done another, and it wasn’t until later on that Katy revealed during her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden what it was truly all about.

Katy revealed the fallout was over back-up dancers, with Taylor thinking Katy tried to sabotage her tour by recruiting some of her dancers to go and join the Daisies singer’s tour.

The TV personality claimed that wasn’t really what happened and that Taylor refused to talk to her about the matter.

Eventually, in May 2018, Katy sent over an olive branch and an apology letter to Taylor, and the Look What You Made Me Do singer posted about the apology package on Instagram.

A year later, Katy cameoed in Taylor’s You Need To Calm Down video.

In the video, the pair dressed up as french fries and a burger and hugged and looked at each other adoringly.

All of this proved to fans that their longstanding feud had finally ended.
