His response was to laugh it off, because a story where he woke up one day and decided to quit his managerial role to save their friendship just wasn't a juicy angle from a tabloid standpoint.
It had to be that Mariah sacked him instead. Makes for a more interesting read, and further validates the belief that she's a bonafide diva. Too bad this was realised AFTER her album flopped and fans went in on his ass for the poor mishandling and lack of promo the project encountered. Coincidence? I think not. If the album was a success, he'd be giving a totally different interview. By the way, how ya feeling the throwback pic?
"I wasn't dropped. I chose to do this because me and Mariah are friends first and foremost...I have a relationship with her (this is the ongoing joke) I have a relationship with Mariah better than her and her husband. I've known her longer than her and her husband have known each other...with that being said you don't want to f*ck that up, right? I saw a lot of things happening inside of me being her manager that could've f*cked that up."
