Scooter Braun Begs Taylor Swift to Resolve Feud Amid Death Threats
Scooter Braun has urged Taylor Swift to end their feud after his family received death threats.
Hours after the manager broke his silence regarding his ongoing Big Machine dispute with the "Lover" singer for the first time, he shared his own open letter on Instagram to address her directly. In it, he not only shared an alleged threat made against his family but pleaded with Swift to resolve their issues before anyone gets hurt.
“Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family,” Braun wrote. “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.”
“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 way,” he continued.
In the letter, Braun also claims he has attempted to contact the pop star numerous times over the past six months, but she hasn't returned any of his calls leading him to believe she has no interest in resolving their feud.
“It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict,” he wrote. “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."
"Moving forward I would like to find a resolution," he concluded. “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."

As previously reported, Swift accused Braun and Scott Borchetta of refusing to let her perform her old hits at this year’s American Music Awards, where she's set to receive the Artist of the Decade award. They've also allegedly blocked her from using music from past albums in an upcoming Netflix documentary. The Big Machine execs later refuted her claims and reportedly reached an agreement, however, it's clear the conflict is not over.
