Braun's feud with Swift has ended his interest in future public service

The 38-year-old record executive claimed he's no longer interested in running for public office following the backlash in an interview published earlier this week by British GQ. At the time, Swift claimed she had previously tried to purchase her master recordings but had been denied the opportunity because of an onerous counteroffer.

Recently, Big Machine released an archival live recording from the singer's early days that she didn't approve.  In addition to owning Swift's masters, Braun manages other high-profile clients, including Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The song's video featured images of fans and other celebrities quarantining with family and friends, and proceeds from the single will be donated to the First Responders Children's Foundation.  Gallery: Bad blood- Meet Taylor Swift's many enemies (StarsInsider)
