She released two more records in 2014 and 2016. And in 2019, she released two number one albums (Sweetener and Thank U, Next) within a span of six months. Her international concert tours have generated a significant portion of the “God Is a Woman” singer’s income. Grande became a judge on the competition TV show The Voice in 2021. 

The singer has also had lucrative partnerships with several brands, including Starbucks, Givenchy, Reebok, and MAC Cosmetics. Like Bieber, she has her own line of fragrances, including “Moonlight,” “Sweet Like Candy,” and “Ari by Ariana Grande.”

Scooter Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande 

Scooter Braun is a talent manager best known for working with celebrity clients like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and J Balvin. Braun has cultivated the careers of several stars and catapulted them to the heights of fame, making a fortune for both himself and his clients. 

He once worked with Kanye West, who famously tweeted, “I no longer have a manager. I can’t be managed” after parting ways with Braun. Braun is also known for his feud with Taylor Swift after he acquired the master recordings of her first six albums in 2019. Swift posted a scathing message on Tumblr in which she accused Braun of “incessant, manipulative bullying” and claimed she was never given a chance to purchase her masters.

Since Braun manages so many celebrity clients, fans may be curious about the talent manager’s net worth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Braun has almost more wealth than Bieber and Grande combined, with an estimated net worth of $400 million.
