Ariana Grande’s manager, Scooter Braun, has said he will honour those who died in the Manchester terror attack by “laughing, loving and living”.

Twenty-two people were killed and dozens of others injured at the pop star’s concert on Monday night when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a bomb as fans were leaving the Manchester Arena.

Scooter said “fear cannot rule the day” in a series of Twitter posts made three days after the atrocity.

In a separate Instagram post, he said the past few days had been “beyond devastating” for him, and wrote that he and Ariana are “with Manchester”.

The US businessman and music manager, who also manages Justin Bieber, shared his experience and thoughts on Twitter.

Ariana, who is reported to have returned to Florida the day after the attack, has remained silent on social media following her message posted directly after the attack.

She had said she was “broken”, adding: “From the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”

The 23-year-old US singer has cancelled her concerts at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday and Friday night, and the rest of her Dangerous Woman tour has been suspended.
