Taylor Swift dragged Justin Bieber into her mess with music manager Scooter Braun - and he was not having it.

T-Swizzle took to her Tumblr page to slam "bully" Scooter after she learned that he now owns all her music.

Scooter's company Ithaca Holdings LLC reportedly finalised a contract to buy Big Machine Label Group, which owns her entire music catalogue, for $300-million.

Big Machine Label Group is Taylor's former record label. She left the company in 2018 and signed a new contract with Universal Music Group.

The deal means Scooter's company will get all six albums she released with the label, including 'Red', '1989', and 'Reputation'. Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum, and several other A-list star's music will also now be in the hands of Scooter's company.

Taylor is less than impressed with the move, as she says she has tried unsuccessfully in the past to own her music.

The 'Me!" singer says she is "sad and grossed out". 

"For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in. I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future," she wrote on her Tumblr.

Taylor added that she had to make the "excruciating choice to leave behind my past".

"Some fun facts about today’s news: I learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world. All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years."

So, where does Justin fit into all of this? Well, Scooter just happens to be Justin's manager and Taylor used him as an example of how she was bullied.

"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 porn 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."

Justin did not waste time defending Scooter, who also manages Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and J Balvin.

He apologised to Taylor for the "hurtful" 2016 post she mentioned but slammed her for trying to get people to hate Scooter.

"Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you! As the years have passed we haven't crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on Scooter isn't fair.  What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I'm sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed,' Justin wrote on Instagram.

Needless to say the drama has many, including Cara Delevigne, taking sides. She's team Taylor all the way! Are you team Justin or team T-Swizzle?
