New York (ANI): American socialite Nicole Richie has dropped former manager Benny Medina, after she got fed up with his meddling. Medina had shut down his Handprint Entertainment in January, but Richie kept his associate Michael Baum as her manager, with her former manager staying on as a consultant.
Last week sources revealed that Richie, who had had enough of Medina's meddling, let him go. “I closed a deal on a clothing line for her but I'm a pay-for-play consultant. A gun for hire," the New York Post quoted Medina, who still works with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, as saying.
“If something comes across my desk, I'll call, but I'm not holding purses anymore," he added.
Richie's representatives have declined to comment on the matter.
