Ed Sheeran has revealed he has been offering Taylor Swift his support through her feud with Scooter Braun.
Swift recently claimed that Braun had been bullying her after telling fans that he had bought her back catalogue, which includes every single, photo and all other assets of her working ranging from her 2006 debut to her 2017 album Reputation.
Fans have since called on Sheeran to support his fellow pop star and close friend, but the Castle On The Hill singer has refrained from supporting her on social media.
However, Sheeran has since revealed that he’s been offering Swift support by speaking to her directly.
Replying to one of his followers on Instagram, Sheeran cleared up the situation by revealing that he is constantly in contact with Swift.
He wrote: “I have been speaking directly to her, like I always do.”
Swift recently spoke out about Braun – who is also Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s manager – buying her former label Big Machine as part of a $300million (£240million) deal.
The singer claims she was never given the opportunity to buy the label, which owns her back catalogue. She’s insisted that was a result of her signing a deal at the age of just 15, and that she’s been bullied by Braun throughout her music career.
In a lengthy post of her Tumblr page, Swift wrote: Any time Scott Borchetta has heard the words “Scooter Braun” escape my lips, it was when I was either crying or trying not to.
“He knew what he was doing; they both did. Controlling a woman who didn’t want to be associated with them. In perpetuity. That means forever.”
