Usher Fires Manager & Publicist

Posted By on August 8, 2008

    Usher is switching things up. The R&B king recently got rid of both his manager and publicist. In an statement, usher says he has "has dissolved his management arrangement with Benny Medina and has re-engaged Jonnetta Patton as his manager." Medina was hired as his manager after Usher got rid of his previous manager, his mother.

    Reports say that Usher replaced his manager after being upset with the sales of his new album, Here I Stand, which after 10 weeks has sold 948,000 copies. In contrast, his last album, Confessions, sold 3.77 million copies in it's first 10 weeks on the charts.
