From the moment Scooter Braun purchased Taylor Swift’s old record label, Big Machine Records, and acquired ownership of all the singer’s master recordings, things have been tense between the two…and for good reason.
But now, in a new interview, Braun seems to be speaking out about the feud, and signaling that this might be just some horrible miscommunication.
“It’s hard when you get attacked and it’s not based on any truth, but for that other person it may be based in truth but they don’t have all the information,” he explained during an interview on Tony Gonzalez’s Wide Open podcast and reported on by People magazine. “And that’s why I am always open to communication and having a conversation with someone and saying, ‘Maybe this was a misunderstanding and I am happy to have the conversation with you.’ But not everybody is willing to do that and you can’t go through life thinking you’re going to be friends and everyone is going to like you.”
For now, the talent manager who has worked with artists such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato says he is trying his best to not let the hate spewed on him by Swift and her loyal legion of fans take him down.

“I don’t really carry it,” he said. “I used to get really angry, but now I am at a place where this is just an opportunity for me long-term to really truly show my truth.”
