[Megathread] Taylor's Lawyer: Scott Lied About Masters

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. (See photo) Or when his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge **** music video which strips my body naked. 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.

Omg its such a ****ty feeling when people just take what all of your hardwork like that.

 

But she still gets royalty and can perform her old catalogue, right? Since she is the main writter of all those songs?

Yes but it would be annoying know someone you do not like owns your music and is making money off it

Any time Scott Borchetta has heard the words ‘Scooter Braun’ escape my lips, it was when I was either crying or trying not to.

Why???

Oh my god she went in :deadbanana4: expose his trashy ass! Why the hell did Demi sign with him. Ariana adding more tour dates is also a nightmare.

At the end of the day though, she's one of the lucky ones. She's rich af already, she'll always earn royalties, and her tour money is also there. Apart from the sentimental value, she'll be fine. This kind of thing is more tragic for the artists that end up broke.

Maybe Ariana should have kept him FIRED. What a terrible man - who's entire client base sans Ariana continues to FLOP into oblivion. He overworked Justin Bieber to the point where Justin was "on the brink of death" from drugs and partying only to milk it for a movie in 3D.

How did Scooter bully her? As far as I know, he's been one of the best managers in pop. Ariana's and Justin's careers have been managed so well. I never knew he was such a bad person. I feel so bad for Taylor

Scooter, Kanye and all the Trump supporting privileged men's evil knows no boundaries.

She still gets performing, songwriting, and producing royalties, yes.

 

And Scooter wouldn't see a dime of her performing any of her old material since he only owns her recordings.

Can somebody explain to me how this affects her music career please? Does Scooter have the power to not allow Taylor to perform her old songs now?

I mean he still helped her throughout her first 10 years or so.

But as she has said in her post, she never expected him to sell her masters to someone who bullied her for many years

That's true, it's just confusing to say you're thankful and now it's like she left with bitterness and didn't trust him at all to lead her into the future. But I guess that's the way I would feel too...

Not surprised since Demi seems to absolutely hate Taylor, and it makes it even worse that Taylena is a thing

This explains why she is releasing such a long album. I can see her never perform her catalog in the future.

Tragic. I feel bad for ol' Taylor.

 

For real though, this is sad.  How she's being taken advantage of like this.

I'm glad my fave had people like JAY-Z and Beyoncé, other black artists who went thru the struggle, to show her the value of ownership of her material.  :clap3: 

Taylor knew the value as well. They just didn’t allow her the opportunity to buy it. She could even have bought the whole label (it would have been easy for her to get investors/partners and raise the 300million if it came to that). 

 

The fact that they did this knowing how she feels about it, with their history, and without reaching out to her to at least try and smooth things over, is shameful.
