Scooter Braun Says Taylor Swift’s Team “Refused” His Offer to Sell Back Master Recordings

"A few weeks ago, my team received a letter from a private equity company called Shamrock Holdings, letting us know that they had bought 100% of my music, videos, and album art from Scooter Braun," Taylor shared back in November 2020. The letter told me that they wanted to reach out before the sale to let me know, but that Scooter Braun had required that they make no contact with me or my team, or the deal would be off."
The music superstar added, "As soon as we started communication with Shamrock, I learned that under their terms Scooter Braun will continue to profit off my old musical catalogue for many years. "I regret and it makes me sad that Taylor had that reaction to the deal," he shared with the publication. In a new interview with Variety published on June 23, Scooter was asked how he views the situation today and his answer may surprise you. He described the interactions as "really friendly and kind."
"I find her to be an incredibly talented artist ," he continued, "and wish her nothing but the best."Watch: Taylor Swift Speaks Out After Scooter Braun's $300M Masters SaleWhile Taylor hasn't publicly commented on Scooter's latest interview, she previously addressed the situation in a letter to her fans on social media.

I asked for her to sit down with me several times, but she refused."
Scooter continued, "I offered to sell her the catalog back and went under NDA, but her team refused. I don't know what story she was told.

I was hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership with Shamrock, but Scooter's participation is a non-starter for me." class=”article-detail__title article-detail__title–speakable”>Scooter Braun Says Taylor Swift's Team "Refused" His Offer to Sell Back Master RecordingsIn a new interview with Variety, Scooter Braun said Taylor Swift “refused” to sit down with him several times to discuss a deal that continues to make headlines.By Mike Vulpo Jun 23, 2021 5:27 PMTagsMusicControversyTaylor SwiftCelebritiesCeleb DramaEntertainmentScooter BraunGetty ImagesScooter Braun can't seem to shake off this controversial deal.
