“I regret working under your name,” choreographer and professional dancer Emma Portner said of Justin Bieber.
“I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice. For content you made millions off of. While I made zilch,” she captioned her lengthy post on Monday (which was captured by PopCrave; her Story has now expired).
She also alleged that the 25-year-old star “barely” paid her “minimum wage” for the hours she put in.
“I couldn’t afford to eat. I was sweeping studio floors to be able to practice my own craft,” she wrote. “The way you degrade women is an abomination.”
On Sunday, the 29-year-old blonde beauty broke her silence on the “incessant” and “manipulative bullying” she said she endured from the music manager. Moreover, she revealed that he would soon own her entire music catalog, something that made her “sad” and “grossed out.”
“Taylor Swift is a huge reason why I always insisted to write my own music, the “Without Me” singer shared on Twitter. “And it turns my guts that no matter how much power or success a woman has in this life, you are still susceptible to someone coming along and making you feel powerless out of spite. It speaks volumes to how far we have to come in the music industry. The way writers are treated. How as an entertainer you are respected but as a writer you’re walked all over. Even when you are both in one single body. I am standing with her.”
“Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you,” the 25-year-old pop star wrote on Instagram, alongside a throwback photo of him and Taylor. “As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair.”
He added, “What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed.”
While the Drew House founder shared his thoughts on the Taylor and Scooter situation, he has yet to remark on Emma’s claims.
