The termination came as a surprise to Debbie Antney who recieved a letter of susepnsion from Nicki last week.
“I received a letter, which was (a) suspension,” says Antney. “The next letter that came in was a cease and desist in doing all business with Nicki Minaj from Nicki’s attorney. I love Nicki. I wish her the most success. It’s not about the music, she’s like one of my children… I wish her no harm, only much success.”
Debra Antney currently is Gucci Mane‘s manager and CEO of So Icey/Mizay Entertainment which is an Asylum/Warner Bros affiliate.
The firing of her manager comes just days after Nicki turned down the opportunity to go on tour with Rihanna so she could complete her debut album.
“*sighs* how…how do i say this…hope the barbz will understand…hate letting them down. *sighs again while in deep thought*,” she wrote. ” Barbz I’m sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi’s tour. I’ve decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand. Barbz, Thx 4 understanding. And Thanks to Rihanna 4 being a sweetheart and extending this great opportunity 2 me. Support the show! Luv, HB
