Story highlights

Scooter Braun and Yael Cohen have a prenup in place and Braun has requested joint custody of their three children, which includes sons Jagger and Levi, along with their daughter Hart.

Music manager Scooter Braun has reportedly filed for divorce from wife Yael Cohen Braun. The news comes days after fans first learned about the couple's breakup. 

Scooter represents artists like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. Yael is a Los Angeles-based businesswoman. 

According to reports, Braun and Cohen have a prenup in place and that Braun has requested joint custody of their three children, which includes sons Jagger and Levi, along with their daughter Hart.

Braun`s filing comes just 10 days after a source told People magazine that the couple was separating after seven years of marriage but still working through things.

The source, at the time, said, "Their friendship is the best it`s ever been, but they`re taking some time apart to sort things out. 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."

In January 2014, at his LA home, Braun had proposed to Cohen, who founded and serves as the CEO of the charity health organisation F-- Cancer. They wed that July in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.In March 2020, Braun had raved about Cohen and spoke about his work-life balance on Ashley Graham`s podcast `Pretty Big Deal`. 

He said, "I found that people who have a foundation of family -- whether it be with the family they make with their friends, the family they start, or the family they already had -- they`re able to sustain a lot better because that`s what really matters."

Braun later added, "I don`t think I actually figured it out until I met my wife Yael. "He further continued talking about his wife and said, "There was my insecurities; I was having a lot of success and I was looking for what validated me. And then when I met her, I realized, between her and the kids, I don`t need that validation anywhere anymore."

"I can just do good work and I can try and be kind to people. Other people`s issues are not my issue. I can only control my own actions. But she kind of gave me that comfort that I`m enough," Braun concluded.

Earlier during the summer of 2019, Cohen had defended Braun after Taylor Swift slammed him for alleged "incessant, manipulative bullying" following his purchase of her musical catalogue.
