Justin Bieber's Manager Scooter Braun Speaks Out After Tour Cancellation

Scooter Braun is speaking out following Justin Bieber‘s cancellation of his remaining tour dates.

The 36-year-old longtime manager took to his Instagram to pen a note about Justin, the tour and to thank fans for their support.

“An incredible run. Congrats to @justinbieber on an incredible tour and thank you to the entire cast and crew for your unending support,” Scooter wrote, before thanking many of those involved in the 16 month tour.

He continued, “And to those that won’t be able to see it…on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry. That was never our intent. But a man’s soul and well being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins. Thank you again…your support for Justin is inspiring. Cheers.”

    Poor Justine. It must be hard to not have a real job that you have to do every day, year after year after. It must be hard to have days off in between each concert. It must be hard to travel the world in a private jet and see things most people only dream about. It must be hard to live in luxury. I can fully understand why Justine has had enough of touring after 18 months. Can you imagine if he had to function in the real world? Poor little thing.

    Oh please… You try 2 years of travelling six continents and suffer the effects of jet lag and time zone differences and then have the energy to do public appearances and rehearsals and then end the day with a concert where you are singing and dancing… Justin is a A+ List mega superstar did you expect him to travel economy class? Even Taylor Swift owns her own private jet so why is Justin any different from her if he travels by private jet? Living in luxury is one thing but if your health is on the line then all the money in the world won’t buy health if you don’t listen to the advice of your doctors… Justin did just that and is taking a well needed break.. He performed 149 concert dates in six continents since March 2016 so don’t try to pretend that was no big deal.

    I bet that the Blind Item about Junkie Bieber is true.

    If that were the case his manager and team would have canceled the rest of the tour. But all reports say Justin wanted to end it.

    I thought the same thing as soon as I saw it and that site is usually right 9/10. If it is him who decided enough was enough, something is going on because usually unless you are at death’s door, management would have encouraged him to carry on especially with all the crap that’s gone on with him and the fans.

    Either way, this is damage control they are doing by going the mental health route, I’m guessing so they don’t get the backlash that Adele got when she cancelled hers.

    How were the tickets sales?? Could that be the reason?? I mean it’s hard to fill up stadiums!!

    lets not exaggerate, it’s been 16 months not two years. he travels in a private jet, stays in 5* hotels, hits the beach pretty damn often for some R&R, isn’t working every day, and there are people who travel every damn day for work, flyinga round the world, hitting meetings all day long, staying in shitty motels with no days off, so Im not gonna cry for him. he had 15 shows to go, and hes given no real explanation for the cancellation.

    He didn’t take a break from curing cancer. It’s a freakin’ concert tour.

    He needs a well needed break??? — look at his tour schedule. He had December and January off, he had 4 dates in Feb, 7 in March, 9 in April, 5 in May,10 in June, and one in July.

    He worked 36 days this year.

    THIRTY SIX!!!

    And let’s not kid ourselves that these are 36 days doing real work for 10 or 12 hours a day. 2 hours on stage (being charitable) and maybe 2 hours beforehand and an hour after the show — he does not need a break he needs to show some professionalism.

    Metallica toured for 3 years, Roger Waters (71 at the time) toured for 2 years. Bieber’s a joke. It shows how little he cares for his fans — (a) that he would plan a tour so long, knowing full well he’d get bored before the end, and (b) cancelling the shows, despite people having made travel and accommodation arrangements.
