After serving up one of the messiest album campaigns in recent memory, Mariah Carey is cleaning house.
As widely reported, the diva’s latest LP ‘Me. I Am…Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse’ totally tanked on the charts upon release in May. And, though no stranger to career peaks and troughs, the project registered Carey’s lowest selling first week numbers since Nielsen began tallying numbers in 1991.
For many, after Mariah herself, blame was primarily directed at manager Jermaine Dupri – who began steering the star’s career in the latter half of 2013. Indeed, the singer’s loyal Lambs made it routine to slam the hitmaker on social media and often felt the fire of his clap-backs.
All appears to have come to a head. Because, in the newest issue of Billboard Magazine, it’s being reported that Carey and the man who crafted many of her chart triumphs have severed ties managerially.
