Carly Rae Jepsen Is Also No Longer Being Managed by Scooter Braun

Carly Rae Jepsen knows what to do in a situation. The pop star is among the latest to be confirmed as part of the mass exodus — which we've dubbed the Great Skeet — from the high-profile artist manager who famously played Hot Potato with Taylor Swift's masters, Scooter Braun.

Representatives for Jepsen, as well as Asher Roth and BabyJake, have now confirmed to the Associated Press that their artists are no longer working with Braun, and haven't been for a while. Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato parted ways with the industry mogul earlier this week, after having worked with him for about 10 and four years, respectively. Idina Menzel was quick to follow suit, while a rep for Ava Max said she is still represented by Braun.

Jepsen got involved with the manager after his client, Justin Bieber, helped propel her 2011 indie-label pop juggernaut "Call Me Maybe" to new heights by tweeting that it was "possibly the catchiest song" he had ever heard "lol."

Last week, it was rumoured that Bieber had cut ties with the grown man named Scooter, who had found him on YouTube in 2008. Billboard reported yesterday (August 24) that their contract is supposed to run through to 2027 — but Bieber has apparently hired a new lawyer to help extricate him, so he may be looking to free himself after all.

Nobody really knows what's going on, but Braun did become the sole CEO of HYBE America earlier this year. Perhaps he's shifting his focus, or it's just some karmic street-cleaning.
