UPDATE: Amid conflicting reports about Ariana Grande‘s status with manager Scooter Braun, a source close to the situation tells E! News she is moving on.
“They are friendly but Ariana has outgrown him and is excited to go in a different direction,” the insider says. “Yes there are negotiations happening because of contracts. But this is her choice. It’s time for something new.”
Ariana Grande seems to be going with a different pov in her professional life.
One day after Demi Lovato was confirmed to have split from manager Scooter Braun, the “Thank U, Next” singer has also parted ways from the longtime executive after 10 years of working together, according to multiple reports.
“All of Scooter Braun’s clients are under contract and negotiations have been going on for several months as Scooter steps into his larger role as HYBE America CEO,” the source shared. “People are spreading rumors based on what they know, but they are off. Scooter’s team at SB Projects are still handling both Justin and Ariana as they work through what this new structure looks like.”
As for Scooter himself, he responded to the speculation publicly with a tweet shared on X, formerly known as Twitter Aug. 22, that read, “Breaking news… I’m no longer managing myself.”
E! News has reached out to Ariana’s reps and hasn’t received a comment.
