Ronan’s mother defends Taylor Swift against Scooter Braun: “he now owns the rights to my dead son”.
In 2012 Taylor Swift released a song called ‘Ronan’. She wrote this song as a tribute to a 3-year-old boy Ronan, who suffered from cancer and passed away. She sang the touching ballad when she came across Ronan’s mother, Maya Thompson’s blog. His mom wrote about losing her boy due to neuroblastoma that year.
Taylor Swift is known for her autobiographical songwriting and she got a lot of people emotional with this one. The song starts as, “I remember your bare feet down the hallway, I remember your little laugh.”
She made a lot of people stand up for cancer with her moving lyrics. She writes, “Race cars on the kitchen floor. Plastic dinosaurs. I love you to the moon and back.”
The We are never getting back together singer not only sang the song but also donated money to the cancer foundation.
However, in light of the recent news that has spiraled up about Scooter Braun owning Taylor Swift’s songs has Maya Thompson furious with anger. The mother of the 3-year-old took to her Twitter account to show her support.
She tweeted, “Disgusted is an understatement”.
As 100% royalties of the song, Ronan, was donated to cancer research treatments. With Scooter Braun owning the song, he will benefit from it. So in another post, Maya replied to Yael Cohen, Braun’s wife for posting hurtful comments on Taylor Swift.
Scooter Braun’s wife called out on Taylor Swift to get her facts straight. She stood up for her husband as she shared an Instagram post.
She wrote, “You were given the opportunity to own your masters, you passed. Interesting that the man you’re so “grossed out” by believed in you more than you believe in yourself. Your dad is a shareholder and was notified and Borchetta personally told you before this came out.”
She continued, “And 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.”
Yael further explained, ” He’s a manager. Not God. He cannot control the actions of other humans, even ones he manages. Don’t blame him because Kim caught you in a lie, it’s embarrassing, I know but adults own up to their mistakes. ”
She also wrote, “What you haven’t seen is what happens behind closed doors, when he has supported and stood up for you. When he has challenged his clients to be kind. Scott (Scooter) was so excited to work and build with you. ”
However, in the end, Yael also tells Swift to stay away from their family. She said, “Lastly, if you think he can control his clients, please control your fans. Leave our personal life and kids out of this. You don’t understand yet what line that crosses, but one day you will. And I hope you have the dignity, class and kindness to leave your fans out of this and have an open discussion.”
Taylor Swift is releasing her new album “Lovers” on August 23.
