Ariana Grande Joins Demi Lovato, Splits From Manager Scooter Braun: Report

Says Ariana Grande “Thank you, next” to her manager, Scooter Braun?

Puck News reported on Monday that the 30-year-old Grandee is following the example of his pop star Demi Lovato in parting ways with the famous manager, whose roster also includes Tori Kelly, Carly Rae Jepsen, Dan + Shay and most importantly Justin Bieber.

Also unknown sources Confirm Billboardbut an insider told The Post that the Grande rumor just wasn't true.

The Post has reached out to representatives for Grande and Braun, 42, for comment.

Grande began collaborating with Braun in 2013 with the release of her debut album, Yours Truly.

Meanwhile, the duo goes backstage "Dangerous woman" Tour kicked off at Talking Stick Resort Arena on February 3, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona.

“The reason I signed with him is because we had a meeting at my house and he was just as passionate about my project as I was, if not more so,” Grande said said Elle in 2013 he called Braun “an incredible businessman”.

But their working relationship wasn't perfect. Grande temporarily fired Braun in February 2016 — a move Braun later referred to as “s—y buddies.”

He told Variety in 2018: “There was a lot I could have said with Ariana, and in fact my team wanted me to do it because they were pissed.”

“But I said, ‘We're not going to say a word, and this is going to happen again,'” he continued. “They said, ‘Never take her back!' but I just said, ‘Let's be silent and let our actions depend on our truth.'”

He added: “And as her friends leave, she's starting to shed some light on some things, and one day I got a call. She said, “Can I see you tomorrow?” and I said, “No, I'm busy” — I actually couldn't, so I said, “I could see you on Thursday,” or whatever, and I walked over there and we had a very honest conversation.”

He was also instrumental in organizing a benefit concert in Manchester just two weeks after the deadly terrorist attack in May 2017, which occurred outside of Grande's concert.

“That relationship that we had, from divorce to reunion, really gave us the strength for what he never expected to happen in the year that followed,” Braun told Variety.

A source close to Lovato, who turned 31 on Sunday, told The Post that while she's grateful for her time at Braun's SB Projects company, the former Disney star wants to pursue a new direction.

She split from Braun last month.
