Nicki Minaj made an executive decision and fired Diddy as her manager.
Nicki Minaj made an executive decision and decided to fire Diddy as her manager.
Well, that was quick: The Pink Friday rapper announced yesterday that she and Diddy have professionally parted ways.
It was big news when the Bad Boy mogul announced in April that he’d be taking Nicki and Rick Ross on as clients. Seven months, later the Harajuku Barbie said she wants out because “I feel like I’m being managed by my mother.”
“I am really strict when it comes to my representation,” Nicki explained in a statement. “I had sympathy for Sean however I feel as if I haven’t gotten the guidance the manager is supposed to give his clients.”
Diddy’s notorious in the music business for letting promising acts like Danity Kane languish and fizzle out. While, Nicki is grateful for what he has been able to do for her.
“I’d like to thank him for everything he has done for me; for taking me under his wing,” she said. “But now that my album is about to drop, it’s time to get serious and stop playing games.”
