Taylor Swift's attorney has insisted she was not given the "opportunity" to buy back her master recordings or purchase Big Machine Records.
The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker herself posted a lengthy statement after she found out Scooter Braun had purchased the record label - which she was signed to from 2005 to 2018 - from Scott Borchetta over the weekend for a reported $300 million, and with it acquired the 'ME!' hitmaker's back catalogue of master recordings.
The 29-year-old pop star, who has previously accused Scooter of "bullying" her, said she felt "grossed out" by the business deal, and insisted she never got a chance to buy back her assets.
Former Big Machine Records boss Scott disputed Taylor's account and insisted she was offered a new record deal which would have given her back all her "assets", including the master recordings and implied she knew about the deal before it was announced, something which the 'Bad Blood' hitmaker's representative later insisted wasn't the case.
However, her lawyer Donald Passman has told PEOPLE.com: “Scott Borchetta never gave Taylor Swift an opportunity to purchase her masters, or the label, outright with a check in the way he is now apparently doing for others."
