Taylor Swift 'horrified, bewildered' by nude Kanye video

Taylor Swift is reportedly 'horrified and bewildered' by her being depicted as naked and in bed with Kanye West in the rapper's latest music video.

The controversial 'Famous' video, released on subscription service Tidal, features West and a number of lifelike synthetic bodies that resemble celebrities.

The Swift replica is featured alongside West and his wife Kim Kardashian, together with lookalikes of his ex Amber Rose, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Rihanna, George W Bush, Anna Wintour, Ray J and Chris Brown.

"Taylor is livid. Taylor is horrified," a source told Hollywood Life.

"Taylor didn't know what to do when she heard about what Kanye did. She is bewildered, feels betrayed and is beyond frustrated with Kanye. It is like a complete nightmare."

The publication also reports that Swift's new boyfriend, Avengers star Tom Hiddleston, has labelled West "classless" for the stunt.

West and Swift have a troubled history together, which started with his infamous stage invasion of her VMA award acceptance in 2009.

The lyrics to 'Famous' include: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous".

The video was released over the weekend, along with a since-deleted tweet from West taunting: "Can somebody sue me already? I'll wait".

The 'Stronger' hitmaker told Vanity Fair the new video is not "anti" any of the people depicted in it, but is a "comment on fame".
