Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato both split from music manager Scooter Braun
Written by laserteam on August 22, 2023
A source close to the situation confirmed to EW on Monday that Grande has parted ways with Braun, after signing with the mogul back in 2013. The two first started working together on Grande’s first album, Yours Truly, which marks its 10th anniversary next week. The split was first reported by Puck News co-founder Matt Belloni on social media.
A representative for Braun declined to comment.
Singer and songwriter J Balvin, who like Lovato signed with Braun in 2019, parted ways with SB Projects in May and has since signed with Roc Nation.
Braun previously made headlines for a yearslong dispute with Taylor Swift over the rights to the master recordings of her first six albums, which Braun’s Ithaca Holdings acquired in 2019 and later sold to private equity company Shamrock Holdings. Swift ultimately decided to re-record her albums in a bid to own them for herself, with the next release, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), slated for Oct. 27.
Braun’s current roster includes Ava Max, Black Eyed Peas, Dan + Shay, Tori Kelly, and more.
