Taylor Swift went to Tumblr to open up about her charged relationship with music manager Scooter Braun who recently bought her former record label and with it all her old music.
This week broke the news that Scooter Braun – who manages artists such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Kanye West – acquired Scott Borchetta & # 39; s label Big Machine Label Group in an estimated $ 300 million deal.
The 29-year-old singer had some strong words about the purchase and said after she heard of Braun's deal. & # 39; I could only think of the ceaseless, manipulative bullying behavior that I had in his hands for years. & # 39;
The singer then cited her beef with Kim Kardashian in June 2018 and her unwanted cameo in the Kanye West video clip for Famous as examples of the bullying she suffered.
& # 39; Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated an illegally recorded excerpt of a phone call to be leaked and Scooter brought his two customers together to bully me online, & # 39; she said, adding a photo as proof.
Taylor Swift, 29, ripped in music manager & # 39; manipulative bully & # 39; Scooter Braun, 38, in a candid Tumblr post on Sunday, outraged that his company Ithaca Holdings has taken over her old label Big Machine Records and with that her six latest albums
Swift said Scooter has been teasing her for years and has been trying to dismantle her career. She shared this screenshot from Justin Bieber's old Instagram post as proof that he has Facetiming Scooter Braun and Kanye West and the image & # 39; Taylor Swift what up & # 39; subtitled
The photo is an old Instagram post from Justin Bieber, where he is Facetiming Scooter and Kanye with the caption & # 39; Taylor swift what up & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Or when his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge porn video clip that bare my body, & # 39; continued Swift.
& # 39; Now Scooter has stripped me of my life's work, that I have not had a chance to buy. In essence, my musical legacy is in the hands of someone trying to dismantle it, & she added.
Swift said that Scooter is taking over her old music is her worst nightmare.
She explained that she always wanted to have her own music, but entered the music world at the age of 15, sensitive to the swing of the industry.
She signed with Big Machine Records and knew that when Borchetta would sell the label, he would sell her legacy. But she never expected it to be sold to Braun's company Ithaca Holdings LLC.
This week broke the news that Scooter Braun – who manages artists such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Kanye West – acquired Scott Borchetta & # 39; s label Big Machine Label Group in an estimated $ 300 million deal. Braun left and Borchetta exactly on 28 June 2019
Swift said when she heard of the deal & # 39; all I could think of was the ceaseless, manipulative harassment I received for years & # 39;
& # 39; This is my worst scenario. This is what happens when you close a deal at the age of 15 for someone for whom the term & # 39; loyalty & # 39; clearly only a contractual concept. And when that man says, "Music has value," he means it's valuable for people who didn't play a part in it, "she added.
With the purchase Braun wins the six albums that Swift has released so far, as well as the music of Reba McEntire, Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Rascal Flatts and Lady Antebellum, according to Bloomberg.
Swift says that the purchase is a betrayal of her old label.
& # 39; Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer to be Scooter, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; … his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge porn video clip that exposes my body naked, & # 39; Swift said in her Sunday Tumblr message mentioning the famous Kanye video clip

& # 39; Every time Scott Borchetta uses the words & # 39; Scooter Braun & # 39; heard my lips escape, that was when I cried or tried not to do it. He knew what he was doing; they both did it. Drive a woman who did not want to be associated with them. Forever. That means forever, & she wrote.
In 2018, Swift signed with Republic Records, a label under the Universal Music Group.
& # 39; Fortunately, I am now registered with a label that believes that I must own everything I make. Fortunately, I left my past in Scott's hands and not in my future, & Swift said.
& # 39; And hopefully young artists or children with musical dreams will read this and learn how to better protect themselves during a negotiation. You deserve to own the art that you create, & she added.
Her next album Lover will be released on August 23.
