Demi Lovato splits from her manager, Scooter Braun The Independent understand.
The news comes a week after rumors circulated that Justin Bieber would also be leaving the Browns management after 16 years together. Representatives for Bieber and Brown have since denied the reports.
On Monday (August 21), painting It was first reported that Lovato was looking for new management after parting ways with Braun’s SB Projects last month.
The Independent Brown’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
The 31-year-old “Heart Attack” singer signed with Brown in 2019, writing on Instagram at the time: “Dreams have come true for me. I officially have a new manager. And not just any manager, only Scooter Braun.”
She continued, “I couldn’t be happier, more inspired, and excited to start this next chapter.” “Thank you for believing in me and being a part of this new journey.”
Lovato joins famous Colombian singer J Balvin, who also left Brown’s management in May this year.
Brown has been locked in a feud with pop star Taylor Swift since 2019 when he bought her longtime label Big Machine Records, as well as the rights to the master recordings of her first six studio albums. Later, in November 2020, Brown sold the Masters to an investment fund in a deal believed to be in excess of $300 million.
At the time of the sale, Swift, who wanted to purchase the art herself, denounced Brown as a “bully” and “the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry”.
She has since launched a campaign to re-record her albums to ensure that the new owners of her masters will not take advantage of her music, encouraging her fans to listen to Taylor’s hugely successful “Releases”.
In an interview with NPR’s Jay Williams last year, Brown said the controversy was a “lesson learned”.
“What I regret is that I assumed that, once the deal was done, everyone would talk to me, see my intentions, see my character and say, ‘Great, let’s work together.'” He said.
In November 2020, Swift said:[Braun] I will never offer any price to my team” and that she was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement that would “silence [her] Forever.” The Brown team disputed that claim.
“I can’t bring myself to be arrogant enough to think that someone would be willing to have a conversation and be excited to work with me,” he told NPR. “I don’t know these people.”
He went on to say that he still believes he was “treated unfairly” in the aftermath of the purchase, but understands “from the other side” how Swift thought it was unfair as well.
“So I choose to look at it as a learning lesson, a growing lesson, and I hope everyone gets along well,” he concluded.
