Scooter Braun, the guy behind the careers of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and others, has made out wonderfully in his divorce, keeping countless millions in real estate, artwork, investments, and even a private jet, but he also has to pay $20 million to his ex. We have Scooter and Yael’s divorce settlement, which details Scooter’s crazy wealth and investment portfolio.
The scooter will keep the $65 million Brentwood home he bought after he filed for divorce (among other properties), a Gulfstream G450 (about $40 million), over 100 pieces of art (including Warhol and Keith Haring works), retains a slew of investments and bank accounts, and a Porsche and Tesla, according to documents filed by Disso Queen Laura Wasser.
Who Is Scott Samuel?
An American talent manager and record executive, Scott Samuel “Scooter” Braun was born on June 18, 1981. He is the co-owner of the esports team 100 Thieves and the creator of Schoolboy Records and Ithaca Ventures, in addition to managing singers including Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, J Balvin, Demi Lovato, and others.
Ervin and Susan (née Schlussel) Braun, both of the Conservative Jewish faith, gave birth to Braun in New York City. Both of Ervin’s parents were born in Hungary, but they left the country for the United States in 1956. While Susan Schlussel Braun was an orthodontist, Ervin grew up in the borough of Queens and went on to become a dentist.
After being hitched, the pair decided to make their home in Cos Cob, Connecticut. There are four other siblings to Braun. He was the president of his senior class at Greenwich High School, where he studied.
While attending Emory University, Braun began throwing events. Braun was hired in 2002 to organize after-parties for the five stops of Ludacris and Eminem’s Anger Management Tour. Because of this push into the hip-hop industry, Braun was introduced to Jermaine Dupri, the CEO of So So Def Records. Dupri recruited Braun to work in marketing for So So Def when he was only 19 years old; Dupri promoted him to executive director of marketing when he was 20.
Braun was recognized as one of the world’s 100 most important people by Time magazine in 2013. In addition, he was featured alongside Guy Oseary and Troy Carter on the cover of Billboard’s April 20, 2013 edition. Scooter was named “Best Talent Manager” at the 12th annual MUSEXPO in Los Angeles, the site of the 3rd annual “International Music Industry Awards” given by Shazam.
Both Purpose (2017) and Justice (2022) earned Braun nominations for Album of the Year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. Braun was featured on the cover of two different magazines in 2017: the “Hitmakers” issue of Variety and the “Gratitude” issue of Success.
After meeting in 2013, Braun started dating Yael Cohen. This lovely pair tied the knot at Cohen’s childhood home in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, on July 6, 2014. In 2015, they welcomed a son; in 2016, they welcomed another; and in 2018, they welcomed a girl. Braun’s divorce petition was filed in July of 2021.
After seven years of marriage, Page Six reported in July 2021 that Braun and Cohen had split up, albeit we were assured it was amicable. An informant claimed, “They’re pals,” and added that the two were still sharing a temporary residence despite their separation. After hiring celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, Braun filed for divorce around two weeks later.
In their original divorce petition from July 2016, the record executive and the F-k Cancer co-founder revealed that they had entered into a prenuptial agreement. Defending herself, Cohen stated in her December 2021 answer that “irreconcilable issues” were to blame for the breakup.
How Many Children They Are?
She also asked for shared custody of their three children, which Braun had already agreed to. In addition, she asked that he cover her legal costs. Although Braun denied it at first, Page Six said that he had entered into an “intensive psycho-spiritual retreat” months before his split from Cohen.
My wife and I started hearing things like, “[Scooter] has gone wild,” and so on. Nonetheless, it wasn’t the case. Later, on Jay Shetty‘s “On Purpose” podcast, he explained, “It was just feeling like I wasn’t there in my life, and [feeling] like the people around me that loved me, I felt their hurt.”
