Justin Bieber is the latest name to weigh-in on the boiling drama between his manager Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift.
As reported, the music mogul secured the rights to the singer’s master recordings after purchasing her former label Big Machine.
Swift swiftly took to the net to vent – asserting that she knew nothing of the deal until everyone else did and also stressed she’s long had issues with Braun, hence her angst at him specifically owning her life’s work.
With the masses now engaging in heated debate, here’s what Bieber – whose career was shepherded by Braun – had to say (after initially posting and removing a jab)…
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..
