Swift said she had attempted to actively regain control of her master recordings over the past year in a Twitter post Monday evening, following a report from Variety that Braun sold the assets for 300 millions of dollars.
But although she tried to negotiate with Braun, she said her team had “received a letter from a private equity firm called Shamrock Holdings” announcing that they had purchased his music, videos and album art. ‘album.
“This was the second time that my music was sold without my knowledge,” she wrote, adding that she had started re-recording her previous songs. Braun has yet to respond to Swift’s tweet.

The dispute between Swift and Braun simmered for months last year after the industry mogul bought Big Machine, the singer’s label for more than a decade.
“I couldn’t believe who he sold it to because we had endless conversations on Scooter Braun. And he’s got 300 million reasons to conveniently forget about those conversations, ”Swift told CBS“ Sunday Morning ”last year.
At one point, the singer said Big Machine banned her from performing her songs on television or releasing a Netflix documentary – claims the company has denied.
