Justin Bieber Sets the Record Straight: No Split from Longtime Manager Scooter Braun

Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber longtime manager, is not leaving him. Representatives for all parties told Page Six on Friday that rumors that the two had split up were false. Fans went crazy after Puck News reported that Bieber and Braun hadn’t “spoken in months.” Neither has officially addressed the report. Braun, 42, appears unconcerned by the allegation, posting photos on Instagram of himself living his best life abroad with friends including Usher. “Love,” he said in the caption. Fans naturally flocked to the comments area to ask about Bieber, 29, and to chime in on the rumors. As for Bieber himself, he has not uploaded anything to his Instagram account since congratulating Hailey on the launch of her Rhode UK brand on May 18.

Braun has been close to the “Baby” singer since the management saw his videos on YouTube in 2006. Braun was instrumental in Bieber’s meteoric rise and has collaborated with him on all of his chart-topping albums to date. Braun has made countless headlines in recent years due to his ongoing fight with Taylor Swift over ownership of her master recordings. He recently said that he learnt an “important lesson” from the experience, admitting that believing Swift, 33, would talk to him amid the acquisition came from a “place of arrogance.”Braun purchased Swift’s master recording rights, which he sold in 2020 for more than $300 million, and the “Blank Space” singer has been in the studio re-recording them. She has previously re-released “Fearless” from 2008, “Speak Now” from 2010, and “Red” from 2012, with “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” on the way.

Justin Bieber Denies Rumors He’s Splitting Up With Longtime Manager Scooter Braun

Justin Bieber has denied parting up with long-term manager Scooter Braun following 16 years together. The artist, 29, who was spotted and signed by Braun, 42, as a 13-year-old, reacted angrily to accusations that he had been looking for new management, that the duo hadn’t communicated in months, and that ‘lawyers were involved.’ Bieber was a young teen in Stratford, Ontario when Braun discovered him on YouTube doing covers and hunted him down at his school theatre. Braun asked his mother, Patti Mallette, for permission to travel to Atlanta and record demo tapes. Within a week of being snatched from obscurity, Bieber was performing for Usher. Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint company between Braun and Usher, quickly signed Bieber. Justin Bieber was signed to Island Records in 2008 after an audition with L.A. Reid of The Island Def Jam Music Group, and Braun became his manager that year. The celebrity is currently estimated to be worth $300 million, has sold 150 million records worldwide, and has won two Grammy Awards, making him one of the most lucrative recording artists in history.

His most popular singles include Baby, Sorry, Peaches, Love Yourself, and What Do You Mean? He has ten Billboard Hot 100 number ones to his credit. Braun has made a number of headlines in recent years as part of his continuing fight with Taylor Swift for ownership of her master recordings. He recently said that he learnt an “important lesson” from the experience, admitting that believing Swift, 33, would talk to him amid the acquisition came from a “place of arrogance.” “The remorse I have there is that I made an assumption that everybody — once the deal had been sealed — would want to have a conversation with me, see my motives, see my character, and say, ‘Great, let’s be in business together,’” In September 2022, Braun said on NPR’s “The Limits with Jay Williams” podcast that he made the assumption about individuals he didn’t know. “I won’t make that mistake again.” As much as I would like to believe that someone would simply be willing to talk to me and enthusiastic to work with me, I cannot put myself in the position of, well, arrogance.” Following Braun’s purchase of Swift’s masters, which he sold for more than $300 million in 2020, the “Blank Space” singer has been diligently at work re-recording her first six albums. She has recently re-released “Fearless” from 2008, “Speak Now” from 2010, and “Red” from 2012, with “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” on the way.
