Music mogul Scooter Braun has filed for divorce from his wife, Yael Cohen – nearly two weeks after Page Six broke the news of their separation.
Braun, 40, has retained the services of a famous divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, whose previous clients include Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds.
Court documents filed in Los Angeles on Wednesday make it clear that there is a prenuptial agreement between the businessman and the 34-year-old Fk Cancer co-founder.
Braun is seeking joint custody of his and Cohen’s three children: Jagger, 6, Levi, 4, and Hart, 2. He also agreed to pay spousal support.
Braun – the fiery music director who discovered Justin Bieber and was at the center of a very public feud with Taylor Swift after buying the rights to his early works – married Cohen in July 2014.
Despite having their anniversary publicly celebrated on Instagram on July 6, days later we revealed the couple were breaking up.
“They are friends,” an insider said, adding that Braun and Cohen still lived together.
While sources said at the time that there were no plans to divorce, we are told that Braun was the one who ultimately ended her marriage.
Page Six also revealed this month that Braun had secretly signed up for an “intense psycho-spiritual retreat” months before his split from Cohen.
