Big Machine Label Group’s headquarters was allegedly forced to shut early this week amid Taylor Swift scandal.
The record company closed down its offices in Nashville, Tennessee, before lunch time on Friday after employees reportedly received “direct and hostile death threats,” according to Entertainment Tonight.
The company is currently engaging in a public row with former client Taylor Swift.
Big Machine Records have countered claims made by Taylor Swift that they have “blocked” her from performing at the American Music Awards.
The company have responded to the star’s explosive statement, which reads that Taylor’s professional commitments have been jeopardized.
The ownership of the master recordings of her work before the year 2018 are owned by Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records.

In her statement, Taylor asked her fans to “let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this.”
In a statement the company has claimed: “At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere.”
Both Taylor’s reps and Big Machine Records maintain that the other side is misrepresenting the situation.
