Jennifer Lopez Dumped by Record Label

This must be a big blow for
Jennifer Lopez!

It was just announced that J.Lo and her record label, Sony Music Epic Records were parting ways. Lopez has been with Sony for the majority of her singing career so this is a big shocker.

“Sony Music execs aren’t sure who her audience is anymore,” a source told Deadline. “Where once she had little girls, she’s been supplanted by Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.

“Lots of fighting going on between Benny Medina (who, of course, is spending their money like it’s 10 years ago) and the label.”

Her manager Benny Medina, confirmed the split from the label stating that it was the right time to party ways.

“Jennifer had a wonderful relationship with the Sony Music group, and they have shared many successes together, but the time was right to make a change that best serves the direction her career as an actress and recording artist,” he said in a statement.

“She is grateful and appreciative to everyone Sony for all that they accomplished together.”

Lopez has been going around promoting some album she has coming out, but that album doesn't have a release date anymore due to the departure. She is currently in talks with bosses at Island Def Jam in L.A.
