Almost five years into her marriage with Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber has reportedly become a big voice in his business dealings. Amid rumors that Justin may be parting ways with his longtime manager Scooter Braun, sources spoke to Page Six about how Hailey has amassed more power over his brand.
“Hailey has taken control and is heavily involved. She’s a part of meetings and she’s talking a lot for him,” a source said. “She’s the voice. They’re becoming this power couple. She’s a big part of everything he’s doing.”
Reps for Justin and Braun denied that they split and that Justin was looking for new management. A source told Page Six that “of course, there are issues [between them, but] they definitely did not split.”
The rumor of Justin looking for new management came Thursday from Puck News. Multiple sources told the outlet that Justin and Braun hadn’t spoken in months, although Justin has time left on his contract, and neither side is confirming a split.
The outlet described it as being “part of a larger house-cleaning that Justin and wife Hailey Bieber have undertaken amid his recent health issues and canceled tour: CAA was just fired as his agency, per three sources, longtime lawyer Aaron Rosenberg has been replaced with David Lande at the Ziffren firm, and Justin’s now working with business manager Lou Taylor, last seen starring as the villain in the Britney Spears conservatorship drama.”
Of course, Justin’s rep has since denied the Scooter news.
