Swift's confrontation with her former label has intensified recently, as the singer lashed out at her previous managers, claiming they "won't allow the pop star to sing her own songs".

Days after Taylor Swift's scorched-earth statement blasting her former label and its new owner for allegedly refusing to allow her to perform any of her earlier hits at the American Music Awards, the label has made a stunning reversal. The deal was worth roughtly $300 million, according Billboard. Or you'll be punished.

Taylor Swift will be receiving a tremendous accolade next month. "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".

Borchetta and Braun released their own statement on Friday about Swift's claims, disagreeing with her claims.

"Out of courtesy, I personally texted Taylor at 9:06 p.m, June 29 to inform her prior to the story breaking on the morning of June 30 so she could hear it directly from me", Basden told CNN. In the case of the latter, it stands to reason that original master recordings would be needed if she wanted to play portions of music from her first six albums.

In short: Warren's plan could cost the musician far more than she's claiming in unpaid royalties.

Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid, Lily Allen and Halsey have also publicly supported Swift.

The dispute set off a firestorm on social media and dragged in politicians including senator Elizabeth Warren and congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who attacked Big Machine's private equity backers.

Meanwhile, singer Halsey, director Joseph Kahn and Iggy Azalea have shown themselves to be Team Taylor. Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film. Both are artists with whom Swift has an issues in the past.

Braun also manages Ariana Grande and the Zac Brown band. That's it. I've tried to work this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything.

Big Machine contended the opposite - that "since Taylor's decision to leave Big Machine last fall, we have continued to honor all of her requests to license her catalog", though it is unspecific to the AMAs or the doc.
