Ariana Grande did NOT fire Scooter Braun because of “Justin Bieber incidents,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

According to RadarOnline, Grande has “terminated” her contract with Braun, and Bieber’s “aggressive behavior” could be the “reason.” The site explains, “In recent months, she got caught up in bizarre incidents with the troubled teenybopper who was Braun’s first discovery and is still managed by him.”

Such “incidents” supposedly include Bieber being “a little too hands-on” when he performed at one of Grande’s concerts last year. More recently, the webloid points to Bieber allegedly commenting on one Granda’s Instagram posts, “D*mn Ariana u look so good.” So, is that why Grande “dumped” Braun?

RadarOnline doesn’t actually seem to know. Other than quoting a source as supposedly confirming Grande is no longer working with Braun, it merely recites old Grande-Bieber interactions. But the outlet doesn’t provide any proof that they’re connected aside from the fact that Braun has worked with both stars.

Content to speculate rather than provide facts to back up its headline, it seems that, more than anything, the webloid just wanted to do a sensational piece that would reflect poorly on Bieber. Gossip Cop has confirmed that Braun and Grande have indeed parted ways and she will continue to work with her longtime co-manager, Stephanie Simon. But the notion that this is somehow Bieber’s personal fault is untrue.
