There’s been a lot of break-ups in Hollywood as of late. And the music industry isn’t safe either! Today we heard about two big artists breaking it off with their managers—Rihanna and Justin Bieber. But are the rumors true?
Let’s start with Rihanna. Rumor has she has parted ways with her manager Marc Jordan and is now being managed by none other than Roc Nation Management, owned by Jay-Z.
So is the rumor true? The answer is yes, and Rihanna told the AP in a statement today that she’s “so excited to take this next step in my career.”
The 22-year-old is also launching a new company called Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will “merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures.”
Damn, you go girl!
As for Justin Bieber, rumors have been circulating the internet that JB’s mom wants to fire his manager Scooter Braun. But he can breathe a sigh of relief, because this is 100% false!
Biebs’ mom Pattie Mallette took to her Twitter today to dispel the rumor, saying:
“How absurd. Heard the "news" today. Lol Just rumors. Don't believe everything you hear.
Not looking to change the any of the Bieber team. @scooterbraun & the rest of the team we love you!”
