Nicki Minaj’s career is under new management: Diddy.
A source revealed to Billboard.com that the Harajuku Barbie has hired Diddy as her new manager. This news comes about a week after it was reported that Nicki dropped her former manager, Debbie Antney.
Supposedly, Nicki then tried to hook up with Troy Carter, who also manages Lady Gaga. The “Bad Romance” singer threatened to walk if Troy took on Nicki as a client, though.
That’s where Diddy comes in. The hip-hop mogul signed on to handle Nicki, with help from James Cruz, one of his own managers.
Diddy’s going to need all the help he can get as he’ll also have his hands full managing Rick Ross. An official announcement on that development is expected in the coming days.
