Speculation Regarding Scooter Braun’s Involvement In CL’s Music Delays Arise Online Amidst His Controversy With Taylor Swift

This story may go deeper than we think.

CL fans have been (not so) patiently waiting for her new music for quite some time now, and fans (and CL herself) have often pointed to YG Entertainment as the reason for the delays. Fans now believe that Scooter Braun may be an added cause given his ongoing controversy regarding the purchase of Taylor Swift‘s music catalog.

For those who may not be aware, CL is signed to Scooter Braun’s company for her American promotions. CL has said that she’s recorded 200+ songs that have never seen the light of day even though her comeback has been teased by both Braun and YG Entertainment since 2015.

On June 30, she began liking posts defending Scooter’s character online. One such post was Justin Bieber‘s open letter to Taylor Swift regarding the controversy.

Although CL was liking posts in support of Scooter, a tweet from musician Jaime Brooks hinted that Scooter may have actually had a hand in the lockdown of certain K-Pop stars in America.

Fans immediately began to speculate that this was referring to CL, as she is the only K-Pop idol that is directly connected to Scooter Braun.

Other fans, however, think this statement refers to non-YG Entertainment affiliated K-Pop acts.

Fans believe that YG Entertainment and Scooter Braun have been using their influence to block the success of K-Pop artists in America. In 2018 Ariana Grande liked tweets about Scooter being involved in getting Kris Wu‘s album removed from iTunes charts which fans are looking at as proof for this speculation. Since BTS is the biggest K-Pop act in the world right now, some think that this may point to them specifically.

So far none of the parties involved have spoken on the matter, but fans of Taylor Swift and K-Pop stans are ready to band together in support of their faves.
