Trouble? Scooter Braun reportedly checked into a ‘spiritual retreat’ in the months before he allegedly ‘separated’ from his wife Yael Cohen; they are pictured last month at the Dave season two premiere in LA
Speaking about why he went on the retreat on the Jay Shetty’s On Purpose podcast he said: ‘My wife and I began to hear all kinds of rumors, like ‘[Scooter] has gone crazy.’
‘But it wasn’t that. It was just feeling like I wasn’t present in my life, and [feeling] like the people around me who loved me, I felt their hurt.
‘Because, one, we’re all coming in with our own trauma, and weirdly our trauma was matching up, and … I couldn’t fix it. And I’m a fixer. Since I was a kid, I was the guy who was going to make it OK for everybody. And I just couldn’t fix things in this moment in time.’

He continued: ‘A very dark thought came into my head — the ultimate ‘I’m not enough;’ the ultimate ‘I shouldn’t be here.’ I immediately thought — what are you doing here? And I’ve never gone that dark. And I signed up for the Hoffman Project the next day.’
Later in the podcast, Braun said that he’d made plans to go to the Napa facility four times in the past and canceled each time, but he explained why he finally decided to go.
‘You know what happened? My wife Yael, and my children,’ he said. ‘I learned I love someone more than me, and loving them made me go do the work.’
A representative for Scooter was contacted by MailOnline for a comment.
The Hoffman Process is popular with celebrities like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato all attending courses.
