Taylor Swift Lost Her Music Catalog to Scooter Braun, and She’s Livid

This was not a happy weekend for TAYLOR SWIFTScooter Braun, who’s best known for representing JUSTIN BIEBER and KANYE WEST, bought Big Machine Records.  And with it, all the music she released on that label.

In a long Tumblr post, she said she lost, quote, “Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums.”

What stung more than anything was WHO bought it.  She called it her “worst case scenario,” and said she’s been the subject of Braun’s, quote, “incessant, manipulative bullying” for years. 

And she gave some examples . . . quote, “Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated an illegally recorded snippet of a phone call to be leaked and then Scooter got his two clients together to bully me online about it. 

“Or when his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge porn music video which strips my body naked. 

“Now Scooter has stripped me of my life’s work, that I wasn’t given an opportunity to buy.

“Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it.”

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..
