Kanye West has phoned Taylor Swift and personally apologized for dissing her at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards — and she has accepted, Usmagazine.com has confirmed.

A rep for The View tells Us that West, 32, called Swift, 19, Tuesday afternoon after she appeared on the ABC show and said the rapper hadn't yet "personally reached out" to her." 

Swift later told ABC News Radio: "Kanye did call me, and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology."

West also apologized live on Monday's premiere of The Jay Leno Show.

"I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt — and I don't try to justify it because I was just in the wrong," he said.

He added, "I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life, how I'm going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that's something I have to deal with."
