Usher has parted ways with his manager Benny Medina of Handprint Entertainment and reunited with his mother, Jonnetta Patton of J-Pat Management.
A statement from Zomba Label Group said that Usher “has dissolved his management arrangement with Benny Medina and has re-engaged Jonnetta Patton as his manager.”
Usher ended his relationship with his mother’s management company in May 2007 when he hired Medina, who also manages Mariah Carey. Medina helped launch Usher’s latest album Here I Stand. The album has sold 948,000 copies in the U.S. making it the No. 8 best-selling album of 2008 so far.
