Taylor Swift is being flooded with support by fans and fellow artists on Twitter.

After Taylor Swift shared a statement claiming music managers Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta aren’t allowing her to perform her old music, the pop star is urging fellow artists to speak out.

The ‘Lover’ singer also had to announce she’s been working on a Netflix documentary, as Scott and Scooter allegedly “declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project even though there is no mention of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film”.

So far, Taylor has had a number of stars speak out in support – here’s who, and what they’ve said.

Taylor and Selena have been best friends for 13 years, so the former Disney star shared an impassioned social media tribute in support of her pal.

The 'Lose You To Love Me' singer posted to her 161 million Instagram followers: "My heart is so heavy right now. It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don't mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion."

"It's greed, manipulation and power. There is no heart or though of anyone elses. No respect the words my friend has written since she was a 14 year old in her bedroom. You've robbed and crushed one of our best song writers of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with fans and the world."
