Frustrated with the direction his career was taking, the Brit got “leathered” one night and took his angst out on his manager, and his actions led to a split.
“There is, like, a downside to having a manager that has got such big artists, because you’re not the priority – so you have to fend for yourself quite a lot, and I found that out when I was in L.A.,” Max told Tom Green’s Dangerous Dinners podcast.
“Scooter helped me a lot in certain things, but it was quite a lonely place to be at times,” he went on.
“I remember having an argument with him when I was in New York one night when I was leathered. And I was forever apologising for my actions that night. It was frustration that the band (The Wanted) had ended,” he recalled.
“Oh man, I went into one in a club one night… and our relationship wasn’t great after that to be honest… I couldn’t remember anything either. Andy Brown, who was a friend of mine… he’s the one that dragged me away. And the next day he was like, ‘Mate, you ain’t got no manager now’. I was like, ‘F**king hell, man’,” the singer divulged.
But George had some good times with Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s manager – like the night he ended up playing Cluedo with Tom Hanks at Braun’s home.
“Scooter said, ‘Come for a pint at Rock and Reilly’s (pub)’, which was one of my locals when I lived in L.A., and I was like, ‘Alright’,” he shared, recounting: “And I got there and I ended up going on a full night of drinking with Scooter, Tom Hanks, Ariana and Justin Bieber. Oh and Ed Sheeran.”
He continued: “Then we went back to Scooter’s house. Justin and Ed didn’t but me, Ariana and Tom Hanks went back to Scooter’s house and I played Cluedo with Tom Hanks.”
