Scooter Braun Pens Open Letter To Taylor Swift Over Rift; Says His Family Are Receiving Death Threats

Published: Friday 22nd Nov 2019 by Sam

Taylor Swift ignited a fire-storm of debate when she penned what functioned as the latest chapter in her spat with Scooter Braun. 

As reported, the Pop force took to social media to allege that the music manager and her former label boss Scott Borchetta were preventing her use of her own music – after brokering a deal between themselves. A deal that excluded her.

Naturally, Swift’s fans rallied around her and took aim at her foes.

Now, Braun is saying it’s too much, penning an open letter about how his family are receiving death threats.

His lengthy letter awaits below…

Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war. However I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go in to the details of this past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breathe and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation ever worth jeopardizing anyone’s safety.

 assume this was not your intention but it is important that you understand that your words carry a tremendous amount of weight and that your message can be interpreted by some in different ways. While disappointed that you have remained silent after being notified by your attorney 4 days ago of these ongoing threats, I’m still hopeful we can fix this.

We are living in a time of pointless violence and as a husband and father I am concerned.

This is a world filled with toxic division where people express their opinions over social media instead of having conversations in person. I want no part in that. To be frank I was shocked and disheartened to hear that my presence in the Big Machine deal caused you so much pain as the handful of times we have actually met I have always remembered them to be pleasant and respectful. Knowing what I know now all I have wanted to do is rectify the situation. I’m open to ALL possibilities. My attempts and calls to have an open discussion with you over the last 6 months have all been rejected. While some on your team and many of our mutual friends have tried to get you to the table, all have had no luck. It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict. At this point with safety becoming a concern I have no choice other than to publicly ask for us to come together and try to find a resolution. I have tried repeatedly through your representatives to achieve a solution but unfortunately here we are. This game of telephone isn’t working.

While I am frustrated with your accusations and respectfully disagree with many of your statements, it is important that I am clear – no artist should ever feel cornered or bullied. I have spent my entire career in service of creatives and artists, never the other way around.

As the world now knows you can and should perform any song you would like at the AMAs. I have never and would never say otherwise. You do not need anyone’s permission to do so legally but I am stating it here clearly and publicly so there is no more debate or confusion.

Moving forward I would like to find a resolution. I will make myself available whenever works for you. Many have told me that a meeting will never happen as this is not about truth or resolution but instead a narrative for you. I am hopeful that is not the case. I’m right here, ready to speak directly and respectfully. But if you would prefer to make large public statements while refusing to work towards resolving things amicably then I just pray that nobody gets seriously hurt in the process. I continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.

Hmm.

Your thoughts?

    Taylor will always be WHITE TRASH

    • Black Jasmine, The REAL Princess Jasmine Okurrr. November 22, 2019

      TROLLmine you’re the worst kind of trash, racist trash.

    • WHERE IS SHE November 22, 2019

      And you will always be a RACIST.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 22, 2019

      Usually I would agree but i do not think the term ‘white trash’ is applicable here! The correct term is manipulative. Taylor is manipulative. She manipulates the public into thinking she is a victim when she is not. The TRUTH is Taylor never wanted to buy her masters from Big Machine Records. Her new 2018 deal is with UHG. In 2018, Billboard stated two factors around her new deal with UHG:

      1. UHG was in the process of buying Machine Records which means all Taylor’s old masters would Be owned by UHG.

      2. Taylor has ownership of all new masters and access to al old masters.

      The acquisition of Big Machine Records by UHG did NOT take place so Taylor’s old masters stay with Big Machine Records. Thus, Taylor never intended on buying her masters From UHG and she is mad that UHG did not buy Big Machine Records like they promised her they would do! Taylor is lying here and manipulating the public!

      • Jasmine The Real Princess November 22, 2019

        Taydolf Swiftler is still WHITE TRASH

    • CUMila November 22, 2019

      Boo hop poor little white man!
      Why do blacks always need to feel sorry for white guys?
      F*** Him, curious to me if she wrote this all of you would be attacking her but since it’s a guy you defend him!

      F*CK HIM! He’s white trash in his own right! HE can go f*ck himself with His bff F*gin Bieber

  2. Bebo p. November 22, 2019

    😂😂😭 im glad I guess he was feeling like he have a lot power

    • Fancy BISH November 22, 2019

      Scooter bought homegirl’s WHOLE back catalog and now he’s gonna act like his heart wasn’t beating fast when he closed the deal and signed the papers lol…he knew EXACTLY what he was doing and WHO he was dealing with…Tay Tay don’t play, she will put her size 20 foot on your neck lmao 🤣 Now he’s throwing the flag and saying ish about a narrative…well, he GAVE her that narrative, now didn’t he? Chile, Tay Tay outside his house right now, car running playing Bad Blood 😂 Has he ever heard Blank Space? Well, he owns the song now…he should listen to it lmao

  3. Clarksooon November 22, 2019

    Scooter dont let her bully u into selling her masters back to her.

    U paid for something, its ur property and u have every right to use it the way u like.

    Taylor ur bullying and harassing tactics will never work. U have met ur match
    Scooter is just as petty as u are and can play dirty just like u

    • I love big black cox November 22, 2019

      I’m surprise your Idol Cumila didn’t defense or say something good for her queen taylor, instead of kissing her a-s-s all the time. Now u can see who’s your true sis, Taylor!

      • only facts November 22, 2019

        Camila and Taylor aren’t friends anymore 🙂

      • Clarksooon November 22, 2019

        U are so misinformed

        Camila issues a statement on her Instagram supporting Taylor.

        if Taylor and Camila are no more friends, what’s they big deal?
        The way this iduot @ only facts idolises Taylor swift as if she’s a mini god.

      • only facts November 22, 2019

        Since when do I “idolise” (I think you mean idolize) Taylor Swift? I cannot stand this trollop. But I think it’s HILARIOUS that ever since Taylor threw Camila aside, Camila cannot get a top 40 solo hit. And Taylor is being shady by collaborating with Shawn lol.

        Camila wants Taylor back because she gives her relevance. But as we know, once Taylor is done, so is your career (see Katy)

      • Clarksooon November 22, 2019

        Ur mentality is off

        Camila scored a number one this year, Taylor didnt. All taylor singles failed to hit number one.
        Camila is more successful than Taylor on the hot 100 this year cause she scored a number one and that song has not left the top 5 since the day of release.

        Ur so stupid. The way u reason is silly

        Taylor, Selena, Camila and shawn are all sitting together front row at the American music awards. We have seen the sitting arrangements .
        4 main pop artistes ruling the charts. All 4 of them have number 1’s. Camila and Taylor have multiple number 1’s. Shawn and Selena only have 1 number one song.

        Normani is not nominated
        Normani is not invited
        Normani will never sit front row
        Normani doesnt have a number one
        Normani has never won an AMA ever and she will never win.
        Normani doesnt have a Grammy nomination to her name
        Normani doesnt even have a top 5 song to her name, her highest charting song peaked at number 8.

      • CUMila November 22, 2019

        And where are CUMila’s solo singles on the hot 100 you dumb f*ck?

      • D November 22, 2019

        @only facts: it’s spelled ‘Idolise’ in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. A ‘z’ is used in the US spelling of the word.

      • Clarksooon November 22, 2019

        @D
        Thanks for educating that uncultured fool.
        So many words have different spelling

        Colour
        Color

        Organisation
        Organization

        Idolise
        Idolized

        Gurl u need to go back to high school
        Uneducated trash.

        Liar has more streams than motivation

        Liar- 150 million streams
        Motivation- 114 million streams

        Shameless has more YouTube views than motivation
        Shameless 70 .million views
        Motivation 68 million views

        After all the hype normani received
        I read she spent 1.5 million dollars to shoot the motivation video and still the video hasn’t reach 100 million views. How sad

  4. PinotNoir November 22, 2019

    Never liked her music.

    Except Bad Blood.

    Thought her carefree.

    Now I see she is …

    A vindictive $ grabber.

    Out her, Scooter!

    • Fancy BISH November 22, 2019

      How do you like a song called Bad Blood and think she’s carefree? 🤣 She’s an open book, and honest! He can’t do ish lol…imagine if Suge Knight was an artist and someone bought his whole catalog! Now you’ve got PROBLEMS, and I don’t think you can SOLVE ‘EM 😂

  5. I love big black cox November 22, 2019

    Wonder why white gurl love drama And play as a victim so much???

  6. Boytoy1814 November 22, 2019

    Tay Tay fans are RUTHLESS.

    • Jasmine The Real Princess November 22, 2019

      Are you surprised? Her fanbase mostly consists of Trump supporters 🤷‍♂️

      • Besty November 22, 2019

        Shut up Jasmine, The slavery maker that you are has no right to judge anyone. Your big troll ass needs to take a break.

      • Jasmine The Real Princess November 22, 2019

        Shut it, white trash!

      • Lanafan1 November 22, 2019

        She hates Trump. And how would you know who her fans voted for? I’m one of them and I don’t support Trump.

  7. Hkkkk November 22, 2019

    Ohhhhhhhhhh so now you want write and be able to reason. Whilst I do not condone or support any viiokence ( sorry about that hat part ) but Let’s face facts ,bottom line , GREED AND THE NEED FOR POWER and THE NEED TO HAVE SOMEONE BENEATH your gaze is what got you here. Not Taylor swift. She told her story about what was going on with regards you. You should have thought of this before doing your dirt. (Whatever it was you did that got you both here.) Don’t come like you are a victim now. GROW THE F*** UP. Put your big boy pants on and BE SAFE.

    • Jasmine The Real Princess November 22, 2019

      STFU you stupid piece of shîît
      Taydolf Swiftler had the chance to buy her masters and she didn’t. She has no one to blame but her ugly white trash self 🤷‍♂️

      • Hkkkk November 22, 2019

        Okay Okay lets do it like this…. so what do you want me to say to you now? Reply you ? This is all you are going to get unfortunately. Sorry boo! 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️ LOOOOOL

      • Jasmine The Real Princess November 22, 2019

        That’s because I won this argument
        Now go back listening to your white trash music

  8. only facts November 22, 2019

    “Many have told me that a meeting will never happen as this is not about truth or resolution but instead a narrative for you.”

    Scooter is throwing SHAAAAAAADE!

    But Taylor definitely needs to address this. It’s out of hand 100%. This victim sh*t is played out. It worked ten years ago, but girl, not anymore.

    • PinotNoir November 22, 2019

      Address it, she won’t.

      Needs material for next album.

      Her woes are worthless …

      … if she makes no $ off of ’em.

      Financial genius?

      Maybe.

      Pop culture loser?

      Uh huh.

  9. Nicky November 22, 2019

    And we’re supposed to feel sorry for you because?

  10. Tyty November 22, 2019

    Taylor is a liar and manipulater *looks at kanye and Kim phonecall that girl is full of s***. She is a vicious snake.

  11. JustIgnoreMe November 22, 2019

    Taylor Swift is such a Snake. Even the Ama’s said an artist doesn’t need approval for live performances on television or other live media. Taylor wanted her fans to harass that man.

    • CUMila November 22, 2019

      Don’t you f****** lie Ama’s said what show receipts c’mon…
      Scooter and big machine records consider the televise live performance of her singles like a re-recording of the songs, that’s why she wasn’t able to perform her old singles.
      She could perform them since they weren’t televised do your dumb face understands this?

  12. WHERE IS SHE November 22, 2019

    Then sell Taylor’s songs to Taylor. Easier than anything else. These long letters are unnecessary.

  13. 1988 November 22, 2019

    Taylor Swift might be a Boss when it comes to album sales and money, but she failed to be a Boss as a business woman. How do you have $360 million (more money than Braun and Borchetta combined at the time) yet you didn’t buy your own masters? Now Scooter has a net worth of $400 million thanks to your mistake.

    Michael Jackson bought The Beatles catalog after learning Paul would not be bidding by his entertainment lawyer….John Branca (ironic last name isn’t it…lol?). It’s even more ironic that Taylor Swift actually signed and re-signed with Sony/ATV. Anyway, Paul was the one to teach Michael how lucrative it was to own other artists catalogs as Paul owns some catalogs of other artists. Michael bought The Beatles catalog for $47.5 million dollars in 1985. Paul caught feelings (like Taylor) to the point of not talking to MJ for years. The Beatles are still the biggest musical act of all-time in terms of hits to this very day. Michael Jackson was smart! Scooter Braun was smart! And her grown fans need to understand how the law works. Taylor is turning 30 years old this December. They will lock your 30 year old behinds up if you want to be Thug Swifties. You guys are not teens with computers anymore. Scooter legally can blow ya’ll backs out Scarface style if you so choose to roll up to his house threatening the safety of his family. 🙂

    Read this for all the details (and current details) about the legendary buying of The Beatles catalog now worth in excess of $1 Billion:

  14. Ghetto Housewife Has Spoken November 22, 2019

    not a Swifty WHATSOEVER but i’m less of a fan of men taking from women… he’s knows he just has to sell her back her masters to be done with this mess. he’s making his bed and lying in it. i hope his wife is paying attention..

    • Fancy BISH November 22, 2019

      This! 😂 Now Scooter’s in a robe, towel head wrap and Chinese slippers penning Dear Taylor letters in the wee hours of the morning! 🤣 This ain’t the 80’s! Social media is real, these kids all have phones and they’re plum dumb crazy lmao…they’ll do anything for clout! And yes, her fans are ridiculous but he’s banking on THEM to stream her ish and buy the greatest hits packages that he’s surely gonna put together! 💯

  15. J November 22, 2019

    I’d honestly be showing out the same way if I were her. He might as well sell it back to her.

  16. Lanafan1 November 22, 2019

    Taylor for the win!

  17. Ropeburn November 23, 2019

    This dud needs to understand that Taylor wouldn’t even need to mention his name if he wasn’t trying to screw her behind the scenes. Just stop playing games and let that girl make a clean break. It’s just that simple. He could’ve kept that dissertation to himself.

    • Yeah I said it November 24, 2019

      IF Taylor ends up like Aaliyah. Accidentally in An accident scooter will Ben a billionaire she need to be careful or he will sacrifice her Music INDUSTRY style . PRAY FOR TAYLOR

  18. Yeah I said it November 24, 2019

    WE need to watch of For Scooter Braun if anything happens to Taylor he will become a billionaire. I don’t trust him one bit . He didn’t do a good Job protecting JUSTIN or Demi they are JUNKIES . He pimps artist he doesn’t have help them .
