That afternoon, Swift wrote she was blindsided but not surprised by the sale, but felt Borchetta betrayed her by selling her catalog to Braun. “All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years,” Swift wrote of Braun, who she claims coaxed and egged on the feud between her and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

“As you will read, 100% of all Taylor Swift assets were to be transferred to her immediately upon signing the new agreement,” Borchetta countered alongside a photocopy of the proposed contract. “We were working together on a new type of deal for our new streaming world that was not necessarily tied to ‘albums’ but more of a length of time.”

While Swift expected Big Machine Label Group would be sold following her exit, she felt “sad and grossed out” that Borchetta sold to Braun. “When I left my masters in Scott’s hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them. Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter,” Swift wrote. “Any time Scott Borchetta has heard the words ‘Scooter Braun’ escape my lips, it was when I was either crying or trying not to. He knew what he was doing; they both did.”

@taylorswift, I’m here to talk privately anytime.

In his post, Borchetta defended the sale to Braun and the music manager himself while simultaneously throwing Swift under the bus, saying the singer declined Braun’s invitations to perform at a pair of high-profile appearances.

“As to her comments about ‘being in tears or close to it,’ anytime my new partner Scooter Braun’s name was brought up, I certainly never experienced that. Was I aware of some prior issues between Taylor and Justin Bieber? Yes. But there were also times where Taylor knew that I was close to Scooter and that Scooter was a very good source of information for upcoming album releases, tours, etc, and I’d reach out to him for information on our behalf,” Borchetta wrote.

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..

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

“Scooter was never anything but positive about Taylor.  He called me directly about [the] Manchester [benefit concert] to see if Taylor would participate (she declined). He called me directly to see if Taylor wanted to participate in the Parkland March (she declined). Scooter has always been and will continue to be a supporter and honest custodian for Taylor and her music.”

In the aftermath of Swift’s Tumblr note, artists have taken sides, with many allegedly unfollowing Braun on social media. Halsey penned a lengthy letter in of support for Swift on Twitter, while Bieber both apologized to Swift but defended Braun, his longtime manager, in an Instagram post.

While Braun himself has remained quiet following Swift’s Tumblr post, the manager’s wife Yael took to Instagram for a “public airing of laundry.” “You were given the opportunity to own your own masters, you passed,” Yael Cohen Braun wrote. “And girl, who are you to talk about bullying? The world has watched you collect and drop friends like wilted flowers.

“Beyond that, it’s easy to see that the point of putting this out was to get people to bully him,” she added. “You are supposed to be a role model, but continue to model bullying.”
