Justin Bieber ‘hasn’t spoken to Scooter Braun in months’ following split from manager

Justin Bieber has allegedly not spoken to his longtime manager Scooter Braun in months following rumours that the two have gone their separate ways.

People has reported that Justin has been working on new music without Scooter’s involvement despite being “still managed” by him.

The publication has also said the two have not spoken in almost a year.

A source said: “Justin’s been working on his new record for the last six months. Scooter and SB Projects have not set up one session or done one thing for this [new] record. The relationship with Scooter has run its course.”

Justin first signed with Scooter in 2008, a year after he discovered the Canadian singer on YouTube and the two have worked together since.

It was reported last weekend that Justin also parted ways with the talent manager entirely, but the news was quickly cleared up when representatives for both Justin and Scooter denied the rumours.

The news comes after Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato have also both reportedly split from Scooter.

Billboard has reported that Ariana has cut professional ties with Scooter after ten years of being signed to his company SB Projects.

While reports of their split are hitting headlines, a source told Page Six that the two are still working together.

The news came only hours after the same publication reported that Demi had also made the decision to drop Scooter as her manager last month and is still yet to find new management.

Scooter has been managing Justin since he discovered him on YouTube back in 2007, signing him to the record label in 2008. He then took on Ariana in 2013.

Justin has seen all of his eight albums hit number one since being signed with Scooter, while Ariana has seen all four she has released while signed to Scooter’s label hitting the same spot.

Demi has been signed with Scooter since 2019 and has sadly not seen as much success, with her 2021 album Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over reaching number two in the US and her 2022 album Holy Fvck reaching number seven.

Scooter was the face of much controversy back in 2019 when he made the decision to sell Taylor Swift’s masters to a private equity company.

After obtaining the masters when his company Ithaca Holdings acquired Big Machine Label Group in June 2019, it was reported in 2020 that he had sold the rights of Taylor’s first six albums for a whopping $300 million.
