Lady Gaga and her longtime manager Troy Carter are no longer working together, multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard. The news comes some 24 hours after the pop star openly wept through a performance of new song "Dope" at the YouTube Music Awards.
Showbiz411 first reported of the split.
Carter was initially recruited in 2007 to represent Gaga by Vincent Herbert, who handled her A&R at Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope, and continues to work with the singer today. "She was very specific about her vision, all of the music was there, and all she needed was someone to help her translate it to the rest of the world, which is where I came in," Carter said of that first meeting in an interview earlier this year.
