Taylor Swift accused Scooter Braun, now-owner of Big Machine record label, and Scott Borchetta, founder of Big Machine, of not allowing her to play or use her old songs. She issued a statement on Twitter on Thursday.
Braun issued a statement, saying that he was “shocked” to see Swift’s accusations and that they’re “based on false information.”
Part of the statement read:
“The truth is, Taylor has admitted to contractually owing millions of dollars and multiple assets to our company, which is responsible for 120 hardworking employees who helped build her career. We have worked diligently to have a conversation about these matters with Taylor and her team to productively movestarted to see progress over the past two weeks and were optimistic as recently as yesterday that this may get resolved.
“However, despite our persistent efforts to find a private and mutually satisfactory solution, Taylor made a unilateral decision last night to enlist her fanbase in a calculated manner that greatly affects the safety of our employees and their families.”
