Mariah Carey Responds to Rumored 'Explosive Meeting' with JAY-Z
There’s no love lost between Mariah Carey and JAY-Z.
Over the weekend, it was reported that the singer split with her management team at Roc Nation after an “explosive meeting” with JAY-Z. According to The Sun, the stars had a “huge fight” about the future of Carey’s career, which reportedly led her to seek new management.
But the two remain on good terms despite the rumors. Taking to Twitter on Monday, Mariah shut down claims of a fallout while sharing a video clip from her 1999 collaboration with JAY-Z, “Heartbreaker.”
“The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” tweeted Carey before referencing JAY-Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” lyric. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! –Vamoose, sonofa*****’!”

While reports of a riff are false, Carey has seemingly parted ways with Roc Nation after three and a half years. She is no longer listed on the company’s website and is said to have already begun “talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her.”
She is reportedly working on a “heavily R&B-influenced album” as well as an accompanying world tour for next year.
But first, Mariah is set to release new music. She has teamed up with production duo Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis on their new single “Somewhat Loved,” which debuts June 10.
