Taylor Swift Throws A Wobbly After Scott Borchetta Merges Big Machine With Scooter Braun’s Company

Taylor Swift has initiated a rift with Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande manager Scooter Braun that could create waves with her father Scott Swift.

Braun has orchestrated a merger with his company of Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Records of which Scott Swift was a shareholder and all Taylor Swift’s catalogue through to her 2017 album ‘Reputation’.

Taylor Swift claims she knew nothing of the merger and heard about it like everyone else so Borchetta has issued a “breadcrumb trail” of correspondence suggesting Taylor is just throwing a public tantrum while knowing what was happening all along.

Borchetta claims it is highly unlikely Taylor didn’t know what was going on as her father was a shareholder in Big Machine and all shareholders were advised of the merger on June 20.

Borchetta also writes that Taylor was offered the rights to her catalogue prior to the merger announcement and she declined.

Scott Borchetta has documented the dates and times of his correspondence with Taylor Swift advising her by text message on June 29 at 9:05pm of the sale ahead of the Wall Street announcement the next day.

Taylor was offered all rights to her catalogue owned by Big Machine (which includes her father). She told Borchetta in a text message dated 19 November 2018 and timestamped at 8:57am “Owning my masters was very important to me, but I’ve since realized that there are things that mean even more to me in the bigger picture. I had a choice whether to bet on my past or to bet on the future and I think knowing me, you can guess which one I chose.”

Borchetta has published the timeline that Taylor should have known what was happened starting on June 20 when her father was altered along with the other shareholders. She claims she knew nothing.

Here is a transcript of the correspondence between Taylor Swift and Scott Borchetta.

Swift will release her new album ‘Lover’ on 23 August as a joint venture with Universal’s Republic and her own Taylor Swift Productions Inc.
