Taylor Swift's former record company denies she's been banned from singing her own songs

Taylor Swift's former record company has hit back at the singer for making 'false' claims that the label banned her from singing her own songs on television.

In a Friday morning statement, Big Machine Label Group also alleged that Swift owes 'millions of dollars' to their label and that her social media posts are threatening the safety of their employees.

'As Taylor Swift’s partner for over a decade, we were shocked to see her tumblr statements yesterday based on false information. At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special,' a statement released by Big Machine Label Group reads.

The statement was shared on the company's website just hours after Swift made the claim on Thursday.


'In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere. Since Taylor’s decision to leave Big Machine last fall, we have continued to honor all of her requests to license her catalog to third parties as she promotes her current record in which we do not financially participate.

According to Big Machine Label Group, which is run by Braun and Borchetta, Swift has admitted to 'contractually owning millions of dollars' to their company.

The company went on to say: 'Taylor, the narrative you have created does not exist. All we ask is to have a direct and hones conversation.' Taylor Swift's former record company has hit back at the singer for making 'false' claims that the label banned her from singing her own songs on television.
