Taylor Swift Accuses Scooter Braun Of Using Kanye West & Justin Bieber To "Bully" Her
Monday morning has barely started and the tea is already PIPING HOT!!!
Yesterday, Taylor Swift took to Tumblr to accuse Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber and Kanye West of "manipulative bullying," after she found out Braun had purchased the record label that owns her music catalog.
In the lengthy post, Taylor wrote, "some fun facts about today's news: 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," Taylor added, sharing a screenshot of a FaceTime call Justin Bieber once posted to Instagram.
In the pic, Justin can be seen chatting to Scooter and Kanye. He captioned it, "Taylor swift what up." Over the top of the screenshot, Taylor wrote, "This is Scooter Braun, bullying me on social media when I was at my lowest poin. He's about to own all the music I've ever made."
Taylor continued, "Or when [Scooter Braun's] client, Kanye West, organised a revenge porn music video which strips my body naked," referencing the rappers 2016 video for 'Famous,' in which Taylor lies naked in a bed with other celebrities including Donald Trump and George Bush.
"Now Scooter has stripped me of my life's work, that I wasn't given an opportunity to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it," Taylor wrote.
Taylor went on to explain that "never in my worst nightmares," did she ever expect her record exec Scott Borchetta to sell it to Scooter Braun. "Any time Scott Borchetta has heard the words ‘Scooter Braun’ escape my lips, it was when I was either crying or trying not to. He knew what he was doing; they both did. Controlling a woman who didn’t want to be associated with them. In perpetuity. That means forever."
Tay said, "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."
The singer signed off her Tumblr post, "sad and grossed out," with the broken heart emoji.
Justin Bieber has since responded to Taylor's post, writing on Instagram, "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."
Biebs said Scooter had nothing to do with his caption, "Taylor swift what up," and Scooter was the one who actually told him "not to joke like that."
Justin said Taylor's decision to take her beef with Scooter to social media "isn't fair."
"What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? Seems to me like it was to get symptahy you also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully Scooter," he wrote.
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..
Justin ended his Instagram post by explaining that "both Scooter and I love you."

Justin's wife Hailey Baldwin showed her support in the comments section, simply writing, "gentleman."
Taylor is yet to respond to Justin's apology but stay tuned as this beef HEATS UP!
