Published on June 5, 2021

Mariah Carey has reportedly severed her business relationship with rapper Jay-Z, just three and a half years after signing with his management company Roc Nation.

The superstars allegedly had a ‘blazing row’ about the future of Carey’s career, which reportedly inspired the star to look for a new manager with ‘full belief in her.’

‘Mariah and Jay had an explosive meeting which did not go well at all. She has made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him and has called it quits with Roc Nation,’ a source told The Sun on Friday.

The insider continued: ‘She will formally depart in the next few weeks. It is a shame because they had done some great work in the last few years. But this meeting couldn’t have gone much worse.’

Carey is said to have already begun ‘talking to other managers’ and is not letting anything ‘stand in her way.’

Roc Nation has already removed the performer from their website, which lists the talent they represent.

A source close to the situation refuted earlier claims by telling DailyMail.com that reports of a ‘row’ between Mariah and Jay-Z are ‘simply not true.’

‘Mariah’s relationship with Roc Nation ended amicably and Mariah and Jay-Z are on great terms,’ said the insider.

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Mariah and Jay-Z for comment.
