Mariah Carey has clapped back hard at claims that an “explosive row” with JAY-Z led to her departure from Roc Nation management.
Full story below…
Mimi’s exit from the media juggernaut was accompanied by conflicting accounts from different sources.
An initial insider alleged that a disagreement between the longtime collaborators led to the end of the business relationship. Another refuted the claim and stressed that it was totally amicable.
Now, Carey herself has weighed in with firm clarification that there is no drama:
The only “explosive” situation I’d ever “get into” with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song “Heartbreaker”!! To the people who make up these lies I say “Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****”!”

Furthermore, it’s become apparent that Carey’s longtime manager during her tenure at Roc Nation left the company in January to set up the music division at a new company. And the switch is simply down to the fact that the singer has understandably followed her.
A reality that lends credence to the fact that there indeed is no beef.
What’s more, anyone with an understanding of how such companies work would know that it’s highly unlikely JAY-Z (as the literal head of Roc) would ever be that closely involved with the ins and outs of anyone’s project. There are managers in place for that.
Great to see Mimi clear up the confusion.
