According to TMZ, Braun turned down the offer – choosing to keep his other high-profile clients including Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

After the news broke online, Scooter Braun appeared to respond on Twitter, writing: “A man’s loyalty is truly tested when he is willing to stand by someone who will never show that same respect. 

“Don’t show love and loyalty waiting for reciprocation... do it because your integrity demands it.”

After seeing Scooter Braun’s response, Kanye West fired back with his own series of angry tweets.

“I no longer have a manager,” he said. “I can’t be managed.” 

Interestingly, Kanye West then took shots at a number of US publications including TMZ, The Shade Room and People Magazine. 

Meanwhile, Kanye West’s new album is set to be released on 1st June, while his joint album with Kid Cudi will be released on 8th June.
