Singer Ed Sheeran finally broke his silence on the conflict between Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun after online commenters called him out for not backing Swift. “Why aren’t you publicly showing your support of Taylor?” one asked. Wrote another: “So you, a songwriter and one of the most successful and influential musicians in the world, are just gonna stay silent on the fact that taylor swift, one of your friends or so we think, got robbed of 11 years of her own work.” Sheeran finally commented after one Instagram user defended him by writing, “Just because he didn’t post anything it doesn’t mean he is not supporting her." He wrote in response, “I have been speaking directly to her, like I always do." Swift and Braun are feuding over the music mogul's $300 million purchase of the Big Machine Label Group, which means Braun now owns the singer's back catalog.
