Scooter Braun recently broke his silence regarding the controversy over Taylor Swift’s masters, and while he initially said he was “not going to participate” in airing their grievances out on social media, he has now changed his mind.
The manager took to social media to share an open letter to Taylor, saying he did so because of death threats that he received that involved his family, and even shared a screen grab of one of the threats he received.
“Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family,” he writes, sharing that his wife recently received a phone call threatening his family. “I 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.”
He adds that he’s “disappointed: she has “remained silent after being notified by your attorney 4 days ago of these ongoing threats,” he notes, “I’m still hopeful we can fix this.”
Scooter went on to note that he was “shocked and disheartened to hear” that his purchase of Big Machine “caused you so much pain.” He adds he’s attempted several times to contact her in order to “rectify the situation” but says Taylor refused to speak to him, noting, “It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict.”
Scooter says he’s “frustrated” by Taylor’s accusations and says he “respectfully” disagrees with “many of your statements.” “Moving forward I would like to find a resolution. I will make myself available whenever works for you,” he offers. “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 continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.”
