Mariah Carey Becomes Her Own Manager

Mariah Carey has relieved Benny Medina as her full-time talent manager. According to E! Online, Medina’s Handprint Entertainment will continue to develop content for projects including Carey’s upcoming tour, an HBO Christmas movie, and a variety music show for CBS.

“Benny Medina and I will continue to work together on projects both present and in the future. I’m looking forward to working with Benny on what we have been developing, and to his continued involvement in my creative life,” the singer said in a statement.

Carey’s own Maroon Entertainment will be managing her career.

Medina, who has been working with Carey for over five years, recently parted ways with Usher and Tyra Banks.
