London (ANI): Alicia Keys has apparently parted ways with her long
time manger in order to take complete control of her career. The
R&B singer has worked with Jeff Robinson since her early days
in the music industry, but the pair has now ended their
professional relationship by "mutual agreement".
Keys will still consult Robinson on her future albums, but will
now personally handle more important decisions on touring, music
licensing, and film and TV deals.
"This decision will allow Alicia more control over all aspects
of her career from singing and songwriting, to leading many
business ventures and social causes. (The decision was) mutually
agreed upon and amicable," the Daily Star quoted a statement
released to Billboard.com.
