Influential pop artist manager Johnny Wright ('N Sync, Britney Spears) has inked a co-management deal for Sean "P. Diddy" Combs with Phil Robinson, Billboard Bulletin reports. Combs is planning to tour mid-sized venues and possibly arenas starting next spring, but beforehand, he will open the final two shows on Spears' current North American arena tour, Dec. 19 in Miami and Dec. 21 in Washington, D.C.

Wright has also signed a new management deal with Def Jam artist Christina Milian, who will also tour next year, possibly as part of a multi-act pop package. Milian's "AM to PM" is No. 6 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Sales chart this week.

In other news from Wright's camp, Spears will follow up her current tour with more dates next spring and summer, likely a combination of sheds and arenas, Wright says. As first reported here last month, 'N Sync will play arenas starting in March.
