"Congrats @taylorswift13," Braun tweeted. "Supporting was always the healthier option."

Scooter Braun is praising Taylor Swift's new album "Lover" following their feud over her masters.

Only a couple of hours after the pop star dropped her seventh studio album, Braun took to Twitter Thursday night to offer his congratulations to Swift and called her latest music "brilliant."

"Regardless of what has been said the truth is you don't make big bets unless you are a believer and always have been," he tweeted. "Brilliant album with #Lover."

"Congrats @taylorswift13," he added. "Supporting was always the healthier option. #brilliantalbum #brilliantcampaign congrats."

Swifties weren't buying Braun's words and slammed the music manager in the comments.

"GET A JOB! STAY AWAY FROM HER!" and another added, "Leave her alone."

Another fan bluntly pointed out, "if u support her then you would've gave her her masters."

The feud began back in June when Braun acquired the rights to Swift's music after he purchased the singer's former music catalog from her old label, Big Machine Label for over $300 million.

The "ME!" singer, who said she wasn't informed of Braun's purchase before it went public, then took to Tumblr, where she slammed Braun in a lengthy blog post and claimed he's been bullying her for years.

"Scooter has stripped me of my life's work, that I wasn't given an opportunity to buy," Swift wrote. "Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it."

"I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world," she later added. "All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years."

The story caught the eyes of both Swifties and celebrities alike, all who voiced their opinions on the subject. While some artists including Alessia Cara, Halsey and Brendon Urie took Swift's side, Braun's longtime client, Justin Bieber, sided with his manager and consequently ignited his own feud with Swift.

Meanwhile, Swift recently announced she plans to re-record her first five albums.

"One thing about this album that's really special to me is that it's the first one that I will own of my work, which is a concept that they're very supportive of," she told Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" Thursday.

"It's something that I'm very excited about doing because my contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again," she continued. "I'm very excited about it. I just think that artists deserve to own their own work. I just feel very passionately about that."

"Lover" is out now.
