The 38-year-old manager took to Twitter early Friday morning following the release of Swift’s seventh studio album, Lover.
“Regardless of what has been said the truth is you don’t make big bets unless you are a believer and always have been. Brilliant album with #Lover,” Braun tweeted. “Congrats @taylorswift13. Supporting was always the healthier option. #brilliantalbum #brilliantcampaign congrats.”
Swifties quickly slammed Braun in the comments, telling him to “get a job” and “stay away from her.”
This comes after Braun made headlines for purchasing Swift's former label, Big Machine, for a reported $300 million through his company, Ithaca Holdings, and thus received majority ownership of Swift's master recordings. Swift publicly slammed the deal and has widely praised Lover for being the first album she has owned.
“For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my own work,” she wrote in a Tumblr post back in July. “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.”
She went on to call out Braun for “incessant, manipulative bullying,” pointing to Kim Kardashian West recording a phone call between her and Kanye West and accused Braun’s clients, Justin Bieber and West, of bullying her.
“Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it,” she wrote at the time.
