    Mariah Carey has fired producer/songwriter Jermaine Dupri, who was serving as her manager. It was a role he filled for less than a year.

    Dupri spoke to Billboard about the management split, saying, "I'm a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I'm not allowed to do what I do, then I know it's time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future."

    It sounds like Carey and Dupri are better suited as musical collaborators, not manager and client on a biz level.

    Carey's career is in a messy state right now. She has changed managers a few times as of late and she is suffering through her poorest commercial reception EVER with new album Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse.

    Word is she is now working with Kevin Liles, formerly of IDJ.
