The privatization of the Justin Bieber Company and Braun is still in good shape. However, rumor has it that Justin Bieber has reportedly split with his longtime manager, Scooter Braun.
Despite recent rumors that the pop superstar has parted ways with his longtime manager professionally, representatives for both Justin and Scooter have denied the claims to E! News on 18 August.
Multiple sources tell Puck News that the Sorry singer and music executive “haven’t spoken for months” and they reportedly plan to end their working relationship after their current contract expires.
According to the report, lawyers are concerned and the pop star is “looking for a new agency or manager”.
It seems like the 29-year-old singer is making a radical change in his team. Since canceling his world tour last year, Justin Bieber has parted ways with his agency CAA, replaced his old lawyer, parted ways with Britney Spears’ former business manager Lou Taylor, and sold the rights to his music catalog for $200 million. Sold for (£157 million).
In June 2022, the Canadian singer had to cancel a series of concerts on his Justice League Tour after being diagnosed with Ramsey Hunt syndrome, which left half of his face paralyzed.
He briefly returned to Trek in July before delaying the rest of the shows, which were subsequently canceled entirely in January. Since then he has existed out from the spotlight.
Scooter famously discovered 13-year-old Justin Bieber on YouTube and signed him to his record label, catapulting him to global stardom.
At the time, Mark Mercuridis, founder and CEO of Hipgnosis Song Management, credited Scooter for helping the singer “build a fantastic catalog”.
“The impact of Justin Bieber on global culture over the last 14 years has truly been remarkable,” he said in a statement. “This acquisition ranks among the biggest deals ever made for an artist under the age of 70, such is the power of this incredible catalog that has almost 82 million monthly listeners and over 30 billion streams on Spotify alone.”
Meanwhile, in a statement, Scooter described the deal as “historic”.
“When Justin Bieber made the decision to make a catalog deal, we quickly found the best partner to preserve and grow this amazing legacy was Merck and Hipgnosis. For 15 years I have been grateful to witness this journey and today I am happy for all those involved. Justin’s greatness is just beginning.”
Since then, the 42-year-old has taken an active role in Justin’s career, including producing his 2011 documentary Never Say Never, the 2013 concert film Believe, and the 2020 documentary Seasons.
