AceShowbiz - While Scott Borchetta remained silent, Scooter Braun wrote an open letter to Taylor Swift. The manager of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande claimed his family received threats following his public interview at Entertainment Industry Conference where he broke his silence on his ongoing bitter feud with the "Lover" singer.
"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," Braun said. "I have been at a loss."
"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," he added, referring to her public post in summer when she slammed him after he acquired Big Machine Records and then another one recently when she claimed he blocked her from performing her old songs.
He addressed her criticisms over his deal with her former label, "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."
"All I have wanted to do is rectify the situation. I'm open to ALL possibilities," he continued. However, he claimed, "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."
Accusing her of having "no interest in ever resolving the conflict," he said, "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," he went on. "Moving forward I would like to find a resolution. I will make myself available whenever works for you."
He also mentioned speculations that she would never agree to meet him because it was only "a narrative" for her. He said, "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."
