Here's Everything That's Been Going On With That Taylor Swift, Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber Drama

Eek and now Todrick Hall, Demi Lovato and Cara Delevingne are involved!

So logging into Instagram this morning you might be a bit confused as to what exactly is going on between Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. Two of the world’s biggest pop stars seem to be at odds and the rest of the entertainment world is choosing sides faster than you can say, ‘Kanye West.’

Okay, so here’s a rundown of everything that has happened thus far:

1. Scooter Braun buys Big Machine Records

Basically, Scooter Braun who manages the careers of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Kanye West, has bought Big Machine Records for $330 million. Taylor Swift used to be signed by Big Machine Records, which means that Braun now owns the masters to six of her albums.

Taylor is now signed with Universal’s Republic Records so everything after her upcoming album, Lover will be owned by her. She wrote a lengthy Tumblr post, about her plight to get the rights to her own music.

‘I learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world. All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years…Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated an illegally recorded snippet of a phone call to be leaked and then Scooter got his two clients together to bully me online about it.’

 

She lists other instances, including one such as the below incident by Justin Bieber (read the full story on her Tumblr post):

She also wrote, ‘Thankfully, I am now signed to a label that believes I should own anything I create. Thankfully, I left my past in Scott’s hands and not my future. And hopefully, young artists or kids with musical dreams will read this and learn about how to better protect themselves in a negotiation. You deserve to own the art you make.’

2. Justin Bieber responds to Taylor Swift

The Biebs gave an ‘apology’ to Taylor Swift on Instagram, by saying that the post was a misguided post by Bieber alone and had nothing to do with Scooter. Justin said that Scooter had always had her back since she let Justin open for him all those years ago. He then accuses Taylor of using her fans and influence to bully Scooter and get people to hate on him.

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..

3. Cara Delevingne has it out with Hailey and Justin Bieber

Justin’s wife Hailey (formerly of the Baldwin clan) commented on his post with ‘gentleman.’ However fellow model and a certified member of Taylor’s girl gang, Cara Delevingne responded to Hailey’s comment by saying, ‘Gentleman?…you must be bored. I wish you spent less time sticking up for men and more time trying to understand women and respecting their valid reactions.’

4. Scooter Braun’s wife airs out her laundry

Yael Cohen Braun, Scooter’s wife and the CEO of Fuck Cancer, responded to the allegations with an open letter on her Instagram account. In the post she accused Taylor of having the opportunity to own her masters, and that her father was made aware, and that Scott Borchetta of Big Machine Records notified her of the sale. She also said that Taylor was using her fame to bully Scooter even though she is seen as a role model. And she drew attention to the fact that ‘And girl, who are you to talk about bullying? The world has watched you collect and drop friends like wilted flowers.’ Yikes!

5. Todrick Hall calls Scooter an ‘evil person’ and ‘homophobic’

Singer, dancer, choreographer Todrick Hall who choreographed and starred in Taylor’s latest music video, You Need to Calm Down in a series of tweets accused him of being ‘evil person who’s only concern is his wealth and feeding his disgusting ego’. He said he’s homophobic and notably not a fan of Taylor.

6. A manager at Scooter Braun’s company accuses Todrick Hall of stealing from fans

In response to Todrick’s tweets, Allison Scarinzi, a manager at Scooter Braun’s company, replied and said that they dropped Todrick from the record after he stole from fans on his Christmas tour. Which resulted in a back and forth between the two, arguing about who had to pay the crew members on Todrick’s tour.

7. Todrick Hall then posted receipts

He posted a screenshot of his resignation email to Scooter, thus proving that he wasn’t fired by the company.

8. The former President of Oprah’s network called Taylor a ‘liar’

Eric Logan, who until late last year was the president of Oprah’s OWN network and also sits on the board of Big Machine Records, released a since-deleted series of tweets and says, ‘your power is fading, your shine is dull and this what bullies do, they lash out.’

9. Demi Lovato defends Scooter against Todrick’s accusations 

Demi Lovato who recently signed with Scooter Braun’s company defended him in her Instagram Story, ‘there’s enough hate in the world.’

She then commented on Todrick Hall’s claims of Scooter’s homophobia saying that it is not true:

Todrick then tweeted:

10. Singer Halsey tweeted her support for Taylor

Taylor then retweeted Halsey.

11. Scott Borchetta claims that Taylor had an option to buy her masters back

The President and CEO of Big Machine Records, Scott Borchetta tweeted a response to Taylor’s accusations saying that she was aware of the sale and had the options to buy back her masters.

This is all very messy, can’t wait to see what happens next.
