Justin Bieber and long-term manager Scooter Braun are reportedly bringing their over-a-decade-long business relationship to a close. According to reports, the pair have been in the music industry together for more than 17 years, since Bieber’s first debut. It looks like lawyers have already gotten involved as the duo is said to be ending their current contract and exploring options for a new agency or manager.
Sources say Bieber and Braun haven’t spoken to each other for some time now. If this split is true, it will undoubtedly mark one of the biggest changes in the music industry. Will this be the end of a fruitful and successful partnership, or will Justin and Scooter find a way to mend fences? Only time will tell.
Justin Bieber has recently caused a stir in the industry following a number of significant decisions he has made – particularly with his sudden split from his longtime manager. While the reason behind his separation from CAA remains a mystery, rumors are spreading that this is only one part of a larger reorganization the 29-year-old singer and his wife Hailey have been undertaking.
The last year saw Bieber cancel his worldwide tour, and now he’s taking action with regards to his career. Bieber has changed long-standing legal advisors, gone into business with Lou Taylor (who’s been involved in the highly controversial Spears conservatorship), and he recently sold his music to Hipgnosis Songs Capital for a reported sum of $200 million. It looks like Bieber is well on his way to creating an empire of his own.
Hours ago, the news broke that Justin Bieber and his manager, Scooter Braun, may have parted ways, leading to speculation that this could be the ‘split of the year’. However, Braun and Bieber’s representatives have quickly moved to definitively put an end to the rumors, confirming: “Reps for all parties confirm this is not true.”
For well over a decade, Braun has been the one looking out for Bieber. He first found the singer when he was just 13-years-old and helped him get signed with his first music label. Throughout his career, Bieber has always had the support of his trusted mentor and, with calm waters returned, we expect their close relationship to continue.
