The feud between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun is at a standstill, with no signs of a resolution in sight.

The Lover songstress claimed that she was blindsided by the deal, and in an open letter that she posted on Tumblr, she called the entire ordeal a "worst case scenario" for her.

A new report from Page Six says that the country-turned-pop star had months to inquire about buying her master recordings.

Swift called out Braun on Sunday for purchasing her former record label, Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Records, which gave Braun's Ithaca Holdings ownership of a majority of her masters.

On Sunday night, Borchetta himself addressed the back-and-forth with a bold move at transparency and shared "a few very important deal points" and a contract document on the Big Machine Label Group site.

"This Scooter Braun shit".

But, according to the "Shake It Off" singer, never in her worst nightmares did she think Braun, whom she puts on blast for all the "incessant, manipulative bullying" she's received "at his hands for years", would be the one who would end up owning her musical legacy.

The power of the "unfollow" button is deadly, I'm tellin you!

"Now Scooter has stripped me of my life's work, that I wasn't given an opportunity to buy". He knew what he was doing; they both did.

"When Taylor decided to make a deal for future records someplace else, she. certainly knew that Big Machine would be sold probably sooner than later", said Larry Miller, the director of the music business program at New York University's Steinhardt school.

Emma Portner is the creative genius we can thank for the choreography on Bieber's 2016 Purpose World Tour. "You religiously go to a church that does not support the LGBTQ+ community", she added of his Hillsong church. "This is what happens when you sign a deal at fifteen to someone for whom the term "loyalty" is clearly just a contractual concept", she wrote. Even country singer Kacey Musgraves jumped in the ring by liking the Instagram post by Braun's wife.

Many fans are also wondering if fellow star Ariana Grande will take a side in the battle.

Swift will release a new album called "Lover" on August 23. He wanted to share the shock and he felt when Taylor Swift publicly blasted him. She said that she was being paid "less than minimum wage" while working, and was "sweeping studio floors to be able to practice [her] craft".

Who does Scooter Braun represent?
