Ariana Grande Is Back With Manager Scooter Braun After 7 Months Apart!

no title

Well this news is just grand(e)!

Ariana Grande shocked the entertainment world back in February when she announced that she was terminating her business relationship with Scooter Braun after three years together.

However, it seems as though Ari felt a tad greedy over Justin Bieber getting all the talent manager's attention… because she just re-hired him after just seven months apart!

According to reports, the pop star and businessman have been working together again since early September — but Republic Records only just confirmed the reconciliation on Friday (coincidentally the same day Ariana's new song They Don't Know off the Trolls soundtrack dropped)!

However, this partnership isn't exactly news to diehard Arianators… Scooter was spotted at Ariana's appearances at both The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week, after all.

It's currently unclear what led to their reunion, but we're just glad he's back in time for Hairspray Live!

Do U think Scooter and Ariana work in harmony??
