Justin Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun are not splitting up despite rumors claiming their relationship hasn't been the same. 

According to a report from Page Six published on Friday, sources from both parties have confirmed the rumors of the alleged breakup were untrue. Fans were driven into hysteria after Puck News reported Bieber and Braun hadn't "spoken in months."

The report claimed that although Bieber and Braun didn't confirm their breakup, they were indeed headed in separate directions, with lawyers getting involved.

Multiple sources also denied the rumors telling ET, "Justin and Scooter are still working together. Justin is not taking meetings to look for new management. The two recently worked on something together."

Justin Bieber and Scooter Braun first met in 2006 when the manager found the singer's YouTube videos. The following year, Braun flew the Canadian superstar to Atlanta for a meeting that resulted in them becoming close friends and working side-by-side on Bieber's chart-topping albums.

Braun's relationship with Bieber isn't the same one he has with Taylor Swift. The two were engaged in a feud over the singer's master recordings in 2019. In an interview with NPR, Braun revealed he learned an "important lesson" from that whole situation. 

Scooter Braun purchased the Big Machine catalog from Scott Borchetta in 2019, which included Swift's first six studio albums. In 2020, Braun sold Swift's catalog for $300 million, and she wasn't happy. Swift ended up taking matters into her own hands and began re-recording those albums.

2008's "Fearless," 2010's "Speak Now" and 2012's "Red," have all been re-released, while "1989 (Taylor's Version)" is arriving on October 27. 

"The regret I have there is that I made the assumption that everyone — once the deal was done — was going to have a conversation with me, see my intent, see my character and say, 'Great, let's be in business together,'" Braun said. "I made that assumption with people that I didn't know … [and] I can never make that assumption again. I can't put myself in a place of, you know, arrogance to think that someone would just be willing to have a conversation and be excited to work with me."
