Pop music is serious business! Mob type shit apparently! As the ongoing feud for the rights to Taylor Swift‘s music continues, Scooter Braun pleads with the singer to make a public announcement calling fans off from threatening his family’s life! Yikes. Check out his full statement after the jump!


Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war. However I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go in to the details of this past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breathe and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation ever worth jeopardizing anyone’s safety.

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. While disappointed that you have remained silent after being notified by your attorney 4 days ago of these ongoing threats, I’m still hopeful we can fix this.

We are living in a time of pointless violence and as a husband and father I am concerned.

This is a world filled with toxic division where people express their opinions over social media instead of having conversations in person. I want no part in that. To be frank I was shocked and disheartened to hear that my presence in the Big Machine deal caused you so much pain as the handful of times we have actually met I have always remembered them to be pleasant and respectful. Knowing what I know now all I have wanted to do is rectify the situation. I’m open to ALL possibilities. My attempts and calls to have an open discussion with you over the last 6 months have all been rejected. While some on your team and many of our mutual friends have tried to get you to the table, all have had no luck. It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict. At this point with safety becoming a concern I have no choice other than to publicly ask for us to come together and try to find a resolution. I have tried repeatedly through your representatives to achieve a solution but unfortunately here we are. This game of telephone isn’t working.

While I am frustrated with your accusations and respectfully disagree with many of your statements, it is important that I am clear – no artist should ever feel cornered or bullied. I have spent my entire career in service of creatives and artists, never the other way around.

As the world now knows you can and should perform any song you would like at the AMAs. I have never and would never say otherwise. You do not need anyone’s permission to do so legally but I am stating it here clearly and publicly so there is no more debate or confusion.

Moving forward I would like to find a resolution. I will make myself available whenever works for you. 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’m right here, ready to speak directly and respectfully. But if you would prefer to make large public statements while refusing to work towards resolving things amicably then I just pray that nobody gets seriously hurt in the process. I continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.

  1. So the snake in the grass has come grovelling. Where was his moral compass when he encouraged Kanye and Justin to bully tag team swift? As I remember he actually “liked” a post when Justin tweeted “when your friends own Taylor swift” oh I see Scooter, words only carry weight when they’re directed at you. And it’s so nice of you to offer to come to the table now, well after your stabbed her in the back. Too little, too late.

  2. Scooter is a businessman, what ya’ll like to do? Be a sweatheart like Taylor is showing off? She is a faker and a manipulative human being.

  3. Of course he blames her of that, not thinking about his acts or his responsability of the business he’s doing.
    He’s disgusting.

  4. So he bought her catalog knowing she would hate that, participated in online bullying of her with Justin and Kanye then is suprised she was upset he bought her catalog? I don’t condon the threats but they are Swift fans, what are they going to do? Knit them a death mask? He did something shitty and now wants Taylor to come to the table?? Fuck him. IF you cared about the safety of your family so much turn over the entire catalog to Swift and eat the 300 million.
