Inside Scooter Braun's Divorce

Scooter Braun, who rose to fame after discovering and managing Justin Bieber and who has been in the headlines because of his ongoing feud with Taylor Swift, is making his separation with wife Yael Cohen official. In July 2021, sources told People that the pair, who have been married for seven years and share three kids together, were separating and sorting some things out.

"Their friendship is the best it's ever been, but they're taking some time apart to sort things out," an insider dished to the outlet. "So many couples went through this during the pandemic. They love each other and just need some time apart and will hopefully bounce back for their kids."

Just five days prior to the news of their sudden separation, Braun celebrated the pair's wedding anniversary by penning a sweet, emotional message on Instagram to his soon-to-be ex-wife, accompanying a picture of the couple from their wedding day. "If just for the kids you have given me everything. But thanks to you I have grown, I have been pushed to be the best version of myself and to continue growing and learning. That all happened because you came in to [sic] my life. 7 years," the talent manager wrote. "The adventure is just beginning. Thank you Yae. I love you. Happy anniversary." So with all of that said, what exactly went wrong? 

Scooter Braun officially filed for divorce from Yael Cohen on July 21, 2021

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Scooter Braun officially filed for divorce from Yael Cohen on July 21, 2021, and is seeking joint custody of the couple's three children, Jagger, Levi, and Hart. Braun also agreed to pay spousal support to Cohen, and the court documents make it clear that there is a prenuptial agreement between the two. Page Six also reported that Braun has obtained celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, whose clients include the likes of Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and other A-listers (via The New York Times).

Although neither party has yet to officially comment on their impending divorce, Taylor Swift fans have come for the music manager full throttle on social media, calling it karma for his treatment of the mega superstar. Radar Online also reported that unnamed sources told the outlet that Braun's handling of his feud with Swift contributed to his divorce.

"They're both heartbroken. They realized they were not going to be able to fix things and they decided to move ahead with the divorce," a source close to the couple told People. "They're committed to keeping things amicable for the kids. They don't want to have a messy divorce. They have to co-parent so they're keeping it cool."
