Scott’s Texts to Taylor
After explaining the call that occurred between shareholders, Borchetta then said that, on June 29, he texted Taylor personally to let her know of the deal, as he thought it was the right thing to do. However, the music exec also acknowledged that, while unlikely, the pop star may have never seen his text, and may not have been notified by any of the shareholders she was in contact with or associated parties.
“Out of courtesy, I personally texted Taylor at 9:06pm, Saturday, June 29th to inform her prior to the story breaking on the morning of Sunday, June 30th so she could hear it directly from me,” he said. “I guess it might somehow be possible that her dad Scott, 13 Management lawyer Jay Schaudies (who represented Scott Swift on the shareholder calls) or 13 Management executive and Big Machine LLC shareholder Frank Bell (who was on the shareholder calls) didn’t say anything to Taylor over the prior 5 days. I guess it’s possible that she might not have seen my text. But, I truly doubt that she ‘woke up to the news when everyone else did.'”
