Hours after saying that he didn’t want to address Taylor Swift’s very public complaints about him and his recent acquisition of her former label Big Machine, Scooter Braun took to Instagram to address Swift in a very public way.

In a lengthy, four-page post, post, he writes:

“Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family,” he said, sharing a screen shot of one of them in the last page of the post. “This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war.¬†However, I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children, as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go into the details of this past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breath and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation ever worth jeopardizing anyone’s safety.”

He adds, “While disappointed that you have remained silent after being notified by your attorneys four days ago of these ongoing threats, I’m still hopeful we can fix this,” he added. “We are living in a time of pointless violence and as a husband and father I am concerned.”
