The “Kelly Clarkson Vs. A Lot Of Record Industry Types” saga continues: Us Weekly is reporting that the singer has fired her manager, Jeff Kwatinetz, only two weeks before the release of her album My December:
A source confirms to Usmagazine.com that Clarkson has fired LA-based Jeff Kwatinetz, of the management company The Firm. “It is true. It just happened. It is a total shock but she wasn’t happy,” says the source, who adds that Clarkson has not yet decided on a new manager. Another source adds, “They majorly disagreed over the album and the direction and Kelly had enough.”
Those reports of friction are intriguing to us, since Kwatinetz has an executive producer credit on the album, which Kelly has been defending to every interviewer she’s sit down with recently. We’re honestly stumped as to what this might mean for December‘s June 26 release date. Thoughts?
