In wake of disappointing album sales for her Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse project, Mariah Carey has split from manager Jermaine Dupri.
Dupri confirmed news of the split to Billboard, releasing a statement saying he wasn’t allowed to do exactly what was needed for the singer’s project.
“I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on,” he said. “Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”
