Mariah Carey has signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation for management, a source close to the situation confirmed to Variety. The news was first reported by the New York Post. Carey split with her manager of three years, Stella Bulochnikov, earlier this month.
In a statement on Nov. 4, Bulochnikov said: “After working together for almost three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management. During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey’s new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season. Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors.”
A former TV producer, Bulchnikov was responsible for directing Carey’s career towards reality television, launching her “Mariah’s World” show on E!. She was also working with Carey at the time of her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance in 2016. Carey’s previous managers include her ex-husband Tommy Mottola, Randy Jackson, Kevin Liles, Red Light Management and Jermaine Dupri, among others.
The singer cancelled the first few dates of her Christmas concert run at New York’s Beacon Theatre due to a respiratory infection; the first show is scheduled for Monday (Nov. 27).
