Yael Cohen Braun and Scooter Braun attend the MOCA Benefit 2019 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA on May 18, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Pop stars like Halsey and Justin Bieber have already picked sides after Taylor Swift spoke out today (June 30) about Scooter Braun acquiring her Big Machine catalog, and now Braun's wife Yael Cohen Braun has taken to Instagram to call out Swift and share her side of the story.   

In a post captioned, "@taylorswift, I'm here to talk privately any time," Cohen Braun alleges that Swift was given a heads-up about the deal, writing, "Your dad is a shareholder and was notified, and Borchetta personally told you this before it came out. So no, you didn't find out with the world."   

A spokesperson for Swift denied that her father Scott knew of the deal in advance, telling People"Scott Swift is not on the board of directors and has never been. On June 25, there was a shareholder phone call that Scott Swift did not participate in due to a very strict NDA that bound all shareholders and prohibited any discussion at all without risk of severe penalty." Billboard has reached out for additional comment.   

Cohen Braun also responds to Swift's comment about Braun's "incessant, manipulative bullying," writing, "Girl, who are you to talk about bullying? The world has watched you collect and drop friends like wilted flowers. My husband is anything but a bully, he's spent his life standing up for people and causes he believes in."
