Just a few hours after American pop-sensation Taylor Swift penned a blog claiming music manager Scooter Braun had bullied her, Justin Bieber has issued his own response coming to the music executive's defence.

In his recent post responding to Taylor's blog, Justin shared a photo of the two singers taken at the 2009 Jingle Ball. "Hey Taylor," the singer began. "First of all, I would like to apologize for posting that hurtful Instagram post, at the time I thought it was funny, but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. 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 feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. 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. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..

Justin went on to defend Scooter, claiming that his manager had nothing to do with his Instagram post from summer 2016. "Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you," he added. "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."

The singer continued, challenging Taylor's intentions behind her Tumblr blog. "What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog?" he asked. "Seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully Scooter." Justin's response concluded by telling Taylor that both he and Scooter love her, adding: "I’m sure Scooter and I would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain, or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither Scooter or I have anything negative to say about you; we truly want the best for you."

At the time of writing, Taylor hasn't responded to Justin's apology or defence of Scooter. Her initial Tumblr post described Scooter's acquisition of her former label as her "worst nightmare," suggesting that the music executive allegedly tried to dismantle her career. "Thankfully, I am now signed to a label that believes I should own anything I create," her blog stated, adding, "And hopefully, young artists or kids with musical dreams will read this and learn about how to better protect themselves in a negotiation. You deserve to own the art you make."
