It looks like this friendship is officially in the toilet. Though Karlie Kloss had remained silent about the demise of her friendship with Taylor Swift during Swift’s initial feud with Scooter Braun — it appears that Karlie Kloss has an opinion about this whole thing, and it’s quite surprising.
If you remember, Kloss and Swift used to be extremely close. They went to various events like the Met Gala together, they hung out all the time and were pretty epic sister friends. However, by 2017, fans noticed that the ladies stopped appearing on each other’s social media accounts as much. In fact, they hadn’t been spotted out and about together in over a year.
The final nail hit the coffin in June 2019 when Swift did not show up for Kloss’ second wedding. She didn’t attend the first one in Oct. 2018 because it conflicted with her Reputation tour, but there seemed to be no excuse for the more recent one. Though neither of the ladies have said anything publically about one another, Kloss just inadvertently made her opinion known.
Inside Taylor Swift’s feud with Scooter Braun
This past summer, Swift ignited a very public and bitter feud with entertainment executive Scooter Braun. In an open letter, the Lover songstress accused Braun of bullying her and trying to derail her career. Braun had purchased Big Machine Label Group — Swift’s former music label. When he bought it, Braun also acquired the masters to Swift’s first six albums.
Swift says that Braun nor Big Machine have ever allowed her to purchase her masters and that this was essentially a “worst-case scenario” for her. Things got even more intense when Justin Bieber (managed by Braun) jumped in to try to defuse the situation. Later, Braun’s wife –Yael Cohen, accused Swift of lying and bullying. She also said that Swift did have the chance to buy her masters, and she declined. The most damning part of all was when she accused the “Cornelia Street” singer of collecting and dropping “friends like wilted flowers.” Interestingly enough, Karlie Kloss is managed by Scooter Braun.
Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun’s feud has just escalated
Many of us all thought this had settled when Swift declared that in 2020, she would rerecord all of her old music. However, things have taken a drastic turn. On Nov. 14, the songstress published another open letter. In the letter, she says that Big Machine Records’ Scott Borchetta and Braun are preventing her from playing any of her old music at any recorded events or for her forthcoming Netflix documentary. She explained,
Guys, it’s been announced recently that the American Music Awards will be honoring me with the Artist of the Decade Award at this year’s ceremony. I’ve been planning to perform a medley of my hits throughout the decade on the show. Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year…Scott Borchetta told my team that they’ll allow me to use my music only if I do these things: If I agree to not re-record copycat versions of my songs next year (which is something I’m both legally allowed to do and looking forward to) and also told my team that I need to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun.
Swift explained that she went public with the news because she doesn’t know what else to do.
Karlie Kloss just reacted to the Taylor Swift and Scooter Bruan drama
Up and until now, Kloss has stayed out of the ongoing issues between her current manager and former friend. However, she just inadvertently revealed how she really feels. Kloss just liked (and quickly unliked) a tweet calling Swift out. The tweet read,
You sold “your” music, and became filthy rich by doing so. It’s not “yours” anymore, it’s the record label’s. If I sell my car to someone else, and they won’t let me to drive it anymore, it’s because that’s how things work.
