Taylor Swift fans attack Scooter Braun for deleted Instagram story

Taylor Swift fans attack Scooter Braun for deleted Instagram story

Taylor Swift has accused Scooter Braun, who manages Justin Bieber and Kanye West, of bullying after he became the owner of most of her music.

Following the news that Swift's master recordings from her 2006 self-titled debut through to her previous album, 2017's Reputation, would be sold to Braun, the singer-songwriter shared a post on her Tumblr page, expressing how "sad and grossed out" the news made her feel.

Taylor Swift lashed out at Big Machine founder Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun after Borchetta sold the label and all of its rights - including Swift's entire past six-album catalog - to Braun for $300 million.

"As you will read, 100% of all Taylor Swift assets were to be transferred to her immediately upon signing the new agreement", Borchetta said, pointing to a document outlining the terms of their proposed deal.

Swift had left Big Machine Label Group in November, signing a new deal with Republic Records and Universal Music Group which allows her to own her master recordings moving forward.

"Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter".

Braun previously represented Swift's nemeses Kanye West - surely I don't need to explain that - and Justin Bieber. He also refuted Swift's claim that Big Machine said she could buy back her albums, and included a screenshot of a different proposed deal in which Swift asked for a seven-year-deal in which the label would assign ownership of her music to her.

Look, I'll be honest; I'm the kind of person who won't openly admit to loving Taylor Swift, but catch me in the shower singing "The Way I Loved You" on repeat. "In perpetuity. That means forever". I wish you spent less time sticking up for men and more time trying to understand women and respecting their valid reaction.

"I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world".

Bieber continues to say in his post "I usually don't rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves [sic] character thats [sic] crossing a line".

Brendon added, "I thought that was illegal, to do a business turn behind the people who write the stuff". Stay strong, ' she wrote in a now-deleted Instagram story. Taylor Swift's spokesperson also tells People that Scott Swift "did not participate in [the shareholder calls] due to a very strict NDA that bound all shareholders and prohibited any discussion at all without risk of severe penalty".

The heated exchange proves that Cohen isn't one to step back and let one say what they want about her husband, even if it is against mega-star, Swift.

Taylor Swift has got some issues with a man you might never have heard of before, but he's a big deal. But the dispute raises big questions about the struggle for many artists to own and profit from the music they create. Swift famously walked away from the label that made her famous after her 10-year contract expired.
