According to a report from Entertainment Tonight, fans of Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber can go to sleep easily tonight knowing that she and the Biebs are no longer feuding, if they ever really were in the first place. The 25-year-old Purpose artist was seen out in the city by paparazzi on Thursday and when he asked if he and Taylor were still feuding, the singer stated that they were “always homies.”
Justin stated, “I’m done with all that other stuff, other people’s drama is not my drama.” Fans of the celebrity duo know this is the first time he has talked openly about Taylor Swift since he made fun of Swift’s reaction to Lasik-surgery during an IG live video shared by Hailey Bieber – his wife.
As it was previously reported by Entertainment Tonight back in June of this year, Swift called out Scooter Braun as well as the former owner of Big Machine Records, Scott Borchetta, for supposedly taking advantage of her.
Taylor took to her Tumblr account to share a short essay in which she accused Scott of selling her back catalog of master recordings to Scooter Braun. Swift insinuated that Scooter and Scott did this intentionally to mess with her.

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..
Swift said before her fans on the social media platform that the only time Scott had ever heard her utter Scooter’s name was when she was crying about him because according to Taylor, Scooter was a manipulative bully.
Moreover, Taylor accused Justin and Kanye West of playing a part of it as well. On IG, Justin responded to her claims directly stating that he was sorry for the message he once put on his IG account that made fun of her, however, he noted that Scooter never once told him to bully her.
Justin went on to claim that Scooter has had Taylor’s back since she first gave Justin the opportunity to open up for her. The Biebs went on to say that both he and Scooter want the best for her.
