Correcting his “last mistake”: The Kid LAROI returns to Scooter Braun for management

Looks like The Kid LAROI really did think it was a mistake to leave manager Scooter Braun‘s stable.

Not long ago, the “Stay” singer teased his new single, “Thousand Miles,” by encouraging fans to “show me ur last mistake.” He then posted images of Braun, leading many fans to believe that he was dissing the superstar manager, but it turns out it was a prank that Braun was a part of.  It also now appears that LAROI’s post contained some truth: Billboard reports that he’s re-signed with Braun for management. 

LAROI first signed with Braun last June, before leaving in September to sign with another manager, Adam Leber.  But earlier this month, LAROI left Leber, and Billboard reports that he and his mother got back in touch with Braun and hammered out a new deal.

As previously reported, LAROI initially left Braun because the manager wasn’t directly involved in his career, leaving that to his associates. But now, Billboard reports, Braun will look after LAROI personally.

It was while he was in Braun’s stable last year that LAROI teamed up with Braun’s superstar client, Justin Bieber, for “Stay,” which became the Australian artist’s first U.S. number-one hit.
