Spice Girls to part ways with manager

Fab femmes drop Fuller

LONDON — The Spice Girls said Friday they were parting company with manager Simon Fuller, the man who propelled them to become one of the biggest British pop phenomena since the Beatles.

The group issued a statement saying they were splitting from Fuller’s company 19 Management.

“The Spice Girls are hugely grateful to 19 Management but we feel in our hearts that this is the right decision for us,” the statement said.
