The Kid Laroi leaves Scooter Braun after just three months and is moving on to Adam Leber’s Rebel Management


The Kid Laroi’s stint with Scooter Braun’s management company SB Projects has come to an end after just three months.

The 18-year-old Australian rapper (real name Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard) signed with Braun in early June, after his song Stay with Braun’s most famous client, Justin Bieber.

That partnership has come to a swift end, with Billboard reporting that Laroi and Braun have parted ways ‘amicably,’ with Adam Leber’s Rebel Entertainment now managing Laroi.
