Taylor Swift isn't remaining quiet over the sale of her masters to Scooter Braun. In a scorching Tumblr post over the weekend, the pop hotshot wrote that she is sad and netted out that her music inventory presently has a place with Braun, whom she blames for exposing her to long stretches of relentless and manipulative harassing, referencing conflicts with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. “This is my worst case scenario,” Swift composed. Braun's Ithaca Holdings reported Sunday that it is acquiring Big Machine Label Group, which released the majority of Swift's studio collections and owns her masters. 

“When I left my masters in (Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta’s) hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them,” she writes. “Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter.”

Braun, she asserts, got two customers, including Justin Bieber, to bully her online about a released and unlawfully recorded bit of a telephone call she had with Kardashian. She additionally references when West, a Braun customer, organised a “revenge porn music video which strips my body naked.”

She said that now Braun has "stripped her" of her labor of love that she "wasn't allowed a chance to purchase." 

“My musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it,” she writes.

In an announcement posted Sunday night on the Big Machine Label Group's site, Borchetta said he disclosed to Swift's dad, Scott, and different investors on June 25 of the up and coming arrangement with Ithaca Holdings. Borchetta said he messaged Taylor Swift about the arrangement on Saturday “to inform her prior to the story breaking on the morning of Sunday, June 30th so she could hear it directly from me.”

“I guess it might somehow be possible that her dad Scott, 13 Management lawyer Jay Schaudies (who represented Scott Swift on the shareholder calls) or 13 Management executive and Big Machine LLC shareholder Frank Bell (who was on the shareholder calls) didn’t say anything to Taylor over the prior 5 days. I guess it’s possible that she might not have seen my text. But, I truly doubt that she ‘woke up to the news when everyone else did,” Borchetta said.
