Scooter Braun Engaged to Yael Cohen
Manager Scooter Braun, best known for guiding the career of Justin Bieber along with pop stars like Ariana Grande and Carly Rae Jepsen, has proposed to girlfriend Yael Cohen.
Cohen, the CEO of F--k Cancer, a nonprofit organization she founded following her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in 2009, said yes on Jan. 5, Us Weekly reports, and alluded to the proposal on Instagram. The two had just returned from vacationing in the Caribbean when the 32-year-old Braun popped the question at his Hollywood Hills home.
While Bieber, undoubtedly Braun’s biggest client, has yet to respond to the news officially, the 19-year-old singer told The Hollywood Reporter during an interview in November that Braun had "found a really great girl.” Speaking of Cohen, he added, “She's made him a lot better. He's really happy … and when he's happy, I'm happy."
Jepsen did let the cat out of the bag, however, in a tweet on Monday.
Cohen is a native of Vancouver, while Braun grew up in Connecticut.
The news comes on the heels of the Christmas release of Believe, Bieber’s second concert-documentary, which was self-financed by the singer and Braun and tells the continuing tale of the pop star's astonishing success -- and the growing pains that come with it.
