Last night, king of pop and Hailey's hubby Justin Bieber stirred up some major tea when he posted a 'Gram of him and Taylor Swift, calling her out for slamming long-time manager and friend Scooter Braun.

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..
Yikes, Tay! The pic was in response to Taylor Swift's Tumblr post, in which she roasted and toasted Scooter, who essentially discovered mini-Biebs, for acquiring Big Machine Records. Eeks. In the lengthy and majorly beefy post, Taytay says she is "sad and grossed out" by Scooter, as Big Machine Records now essentially OWNS her music, including all of 2017 album "Reputation." Not good, not good at all. Here is a snippet of the post:
“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. I had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past. Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums.
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.
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 below]."
Well, it seems like Tay and Biebs are def on opposite ends of the Scooter Braun fandom train. Taylor has yet to react to Justin's insta post, but since everything went down, Scott Borchetta of Big Machine Records was quick to defend himself, saying "100% of all of Taylor Swift's assets were to be transferred to her."
Could this be the new feud of 2019? Jordyn Woods vs the Kardashians was so February 19.
