The fallout between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun is raging on.
As widely reported, chaos ensued when news hit that the mega-manager had purchased the singer’s former label Big Machine – in the process snapping up the masters of her entire catalogue.
Swift reacted with a scathing indictment of Braun and Big Machine – both of whom have denied her take on the episode.
Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta took it a step further and stressed that the star was given the chance to bid on her music.
Her lawyer says otherwise. His words below…
In a brief but to-the-point statement, Swift’s rep Donald Passman said:
“Scott Borchetta never gave Taylor Swift an opportunity to purchase her masters, or the label, outright with a check in the way he is now apparently doing for others.”
While further elaboration wasn’t given, it appears Passman is referring to the alleged situation which saw Swift offered the chance to buy her catalogue on the condition she re-signed a multi-year/multi-album deal with Big Machine. Which she did not. It’s being claimed that the same requirements were not made of others interested in buying – including Braun.
Stay tuned as the seismic story unfolds.
