Taylor Swift can be locked and loaded to go after Scooter Brown Sunday at the AMAs, but we found out he would be talking to an empty chair because Scooter would be thousands of miles away.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Scooter is not afraid of what Taylor might do … the fact is that he never planned to appear on the show. He'll be in Tampa, Florida, supporting one of his artists performing there … in case you don't know what his name is Ariana Grande.
As we told you first … The scooter is coming death threats from loyal Taylor fans their idol claims Scooters and other Big Machine greats held her top 6 albums hostage.
Our sources say that Taylor – who receives the Decade Artist Award – plans to weave her anger according to Scooter and Big Machine in her acceptance speech, but she won’t be clumsy Scooter and that kind of throws a bubble.
And, there's more intrigue … Ariana and Taylor have both been nominated for Artist of the Year and the most beloved female artist Pop / Rock at the AMA. It will be interesting if Ariana wins given she is straight into Scooter's corner.
