Well, this might explain Kanye West's recent Bieber fever.

The 38-year-old rapper has been working with Justin Bieber's longtime manager, Scooter Braun, for a month now, a source confirms to ET. The news comes after West has been spotted out with the 22-year-old singer a number of times. West also revealed that his favorite song of 2015 was "What Do U Mean?"

Billboard, who broke the news, say that there is "no formal management agreement," but report, "Scooter is a friend and confidant and is consulting with Kanye."

Braun has yet to comment, officially, but posted a picture with West backstage during Bieber's Purpose Tour. "The quiet before the storm.... :)," he captioned the photo, which also features Sean "Diddy" Combs.

West released his new album, The Life of Pablo, exclusively on Tidal last month, but has begun uploading songs to platforms like Spotify and Apple Music this week -- including his controversial track, "Famous," in which he says of Taylor Swift, "I made that b*tch famous!"

Braun also works with artists like "Gangnam Style" singer Psy and Carly Rae Jepsen, and he previously managed Ariana Grande. ET previously reported that Grande's decision for her and Braun to go their separate ways had "nothing to do" with Bieber and that it was simply "the best professional decision for her."

Kim Kardashian West recently Snapchatted her husband adorably singing and dancing at Bieber's L.A. concert. Check out her Snaps in the video below.
