Report: Mariah Carey Parts Ways With Manager

Published: Saturday 4th Nov 2017 by Sam

Mariah Carey has reportedly extinguished her relationship with fiery manager Stella Bulochnikov.

Full story below…

According to The Blast, the pair parted ways recently.

It’s not immediately clear why, however.

For Bulochnikov, who was introduced to Mimi by embattled film director Brett Ratner, the singer is said to have become “too difficult to manage” due to her “erratic behavior.”  It’s also being touted that her dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka is starting to have a heavier than necessary presence in her professional day-to-day endeavours.

On Carey’s end, there’s been incessant calls from fans and industry figures alike for her to sever ties with the Russian.

An understandable, but prickly predicament.

See, on the one hand, Bulochnikov has been instrumental in bringing in bigger bucks – by way of various TV, film, and touring ventures.

However, several missteps have also taken place on her watch. Namely the car-crash E! reality series, the aftermath of Carey’s NYE scandal, ill-advised interviews, and a slew of odd brand alignments. All of which have been detrimental to the diva’s public standing.

In any case, though confirmation is pending, it’s worth noting that Bulochnikov hasn’t posted anything related to the songbird on her social media in weeks. Nor was she in attendance at Carey’s recent hand and footprint ceremony this week.


Whatever the case, there’s clearly a lot of brand rebuilding that needs to take place with Mariah. Something she needs to be both aware of and contribute to herself. In an era where artists are taking the reigns of their own careers, gone are the days of blaming managers exclusively.

Here’s hoping the weeks, months, and year ahead bring about the right kind of change for Mimi.

    STELLA should have Never allowed the New Year’s Eve disaster to happen, then the bad press over the interview and also the horrible reality series and the Anthony Burrell situation all bad. There is no focus on music just drama. FIRED

    honestly one of the best decisions mariah has made. stella did help to bring mariah back to the public eye, but for all the wrong reasons. she relied too much on shock value. honestly i believe that she could manage herself and still do very well.

  6. Lynn Williams November 4, 2017

    For god sake stop the drama. We are fed up of it. Fab singer but get a personality

    Stella was stealing her money and doing other shady things. She and her “expensive habits” need to run along and leave Mimi alone.

  8. hell naw November 4, 2017

    Ding dong the witch is gone!

  9. Kendrick Slaymar November 4, 2017

    Thank god that lady was running Mariah to the ground but she should find an actual manager to manage her and not her boyfriend

  10. Jason November 4, 2017

    Our prayers were answered! Look a Gwawd!! ??

    • Fancy BISH November 4, 2017

      Ain’t God something?! Yaaaaaaas lol

    Sadly, Mariah needs more help than just a new manager…she needs real help to get get her prescription drug and alcohol addictions under control.
    People think she’s just doing the most but really, she’s vulnerable, not mentally well and needs help and support – not vultures like Stella.

  12. Fancy BISH November 4, 2017

    Bye Stella! And you won’t be getting your groove back! Mimi was like, “She ain’t getting a DIME of my Christmas coins!” lol ?

  13. Jasmine November 4, 2017

    Next up. Dump that roach Bryana and go to rehab. Bryana is undercover gay and just using Mariah because she is an easy target. Shes too old to be wasting time with somebody who is not going to be there for her in the longrun. She needs to go to rehab yo detox and get mental help.

  14. Amber November 4, 2017

    Maybe she need a better management in her career.And not her private life,sometimes mngmt take advantage of thieir famous bosses ?

  15. #JACKIE November 4, 2017

    And? Moo fans are always pointing the finger at everyone but Moo. Maybe if Moo wasn’t such a high-strung Champagne addicted delusional diva, her career would be in a better place. #NoVocals #NoShade

    • yonceTHAqueen November 4, 2017

      Not a fan of mariah like that but i respect her as the legend she is. i wont fake cry like many of you thots out there when she is gone.

      also funny how a ciara stan is talking about vocals when your girl has NONE.

      Mariah careys season is upon us, get those COINS.

      i know alot of people hate on stella not just the lambs but also industry people.

  16. Anne November 4, 2017

    I don’t know Mariah and I never will so It doesn’t make a difference to me !

    • Desdemona November 4, 2017

      Then why are you here?!?!

  17. truthteller November 4, 2017

    Great news. It was clear from Mariah’s World that Stella was fame hungry and didn’t have Mariah’s best interests at heart.

    When their collabo first started it definitely was a change for the BETTER. Mariah lost the weight and looked her best since 2013 (I´m talking 2015-16) plus her vocals were good. She did a fantastic Xmas special (the one for TV where Baby Face collaborated) and the European tour was a success too. However at some point it started to become too over-sexualized and Mariah gaigned weight again. Seemed like the focus was lost again (although the girl doesn´t stop working. Maybe what she needs most is a real break for months. She needs it or at leats deserves it. And take care of her voice, not drink). Overall, the last decisions didn´t seem to be that good at all plus this manager was appearing too much, when the iconic superstar ios NOT her.
    So this sounds good.

    • Faf November 4, 2017

      But I think that’s what Mariah wants to be tho

      Hence the jealousy over j lo

      U can sing circles around her but u can’t outperform, our style, or outwork her and that’s what defines a performer

      Mariah to maintain her legacy should be in a legendary lane she’s trying to stay too current

      Why is she performing in leotards when she doesn’t dance ?

      • JOHNVIDAL November 4, 2017

        Probably. But again, some decision were great at the beginning, and some have been really bad this last year and a half. I think it was time to fire her regardless of how Mariah is or wants to live her life.

  19. Charlie November 4, 2017

    Finally! Bring back the true Mariah! New music, bigger endorsements, more live music.

  20. SANDY EDIE November 4, 2017

    Hello there. I’m a big fan of Mariah Carey. I WISH her the best. She has a most beautiful voice. Hope you find a way to make things work the best for your business. Love you. Mimi.

    The lames were blaming JD a few years ago, it’s not management, it’s Mariah being a lazy entitled diva.

  22. ??? November 4, 2017

    Lol now she needs to fire her stylist lmao.

  23. The Wig Snatcher November 4, 2017

    HALLELUJAH!!! Make Mariah Great Again!!!

    • makemariah greatagain November 19, 2017

      Truth to A&R by Joey Arbagey (Mariah dance remixes A&R) and Business Affairs Jerome Farley (a manager, C&C and Jr Vazques)??? Seem to be from the LA Reid camp and possibly coincidentally in LA near Kardashian place, doubt that’s where they were headed though. ???
      Good guy-bad guy plot? There definitely needs to be a bad guy to clean up this mess.
      So this means that LA Reid’s the one who calls the shots? I guess the big man don’t want no more reality show “stunts”? haha bring back the music

    At Mariah’s stage in this music game, deserves more appropriate management that could display the decades of music instead of trying to keep Mimi in 90’s while having the industry moving on disregarding music just unfortunate actions.
