Wow, this is the last thing we saw coming! Not only has Kanye West been spending quite a bit of time mentoring Justin Bieber but now he’s just hired his manager, Scooter Braun, to represent him. Does this mean Kanye and the Biebs might go on tour together?
Kanye West is making moves and they involve Justin Bieber! The rapper has been working closely with the man responsible in discovering Justin, Scooter Braun, and he enjoys his creative vision so much that he wants to make it permanent! HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source who who tells us he’s hired the LA-based manager who also reps Carly Rae Jepsen, Tori Kelly and Madison Beer.
HollywoodLife.com has confirmed Billboard‘s original report that Scooter will work alongside Kanye’s longtime rep, Izzy Zivkovic. There is reportedly no “formal management agreement” but that “Scooter is a friend and confidant and is consulting with Kanye.” This is really exciting news because we told you that Kanye helped Justin with his Purpose album and he even admitted that “Where Are You Now” was his favorite song of 2015. We also caught him dancing to Justin’s music at his LA Staples Center concert, which you can watch right here.

There was also a press release with the announcement that read: “In the months to come, Kanye will release new updates, new versions, and new iterations of the album.
