ICM Partners has dropped Celine Dion as a client, after she failed to pay commission on her concerts stemming from a deal signed in 2017, according to an internal memo obtained by Billboard.
Dion, 50, has been represented by Rob Prinz, currently partner/co-head of worldwide concerts at ICM, for 30 years, since the beginning of her career. According to the memo, ICM will no longer be representing Dion, and will be initiating legal proceedings in order to receive that compensation.
"As many of you are aware, Rob Prinz has represented Celine Dion for over 30 years (since the beginning of her career), including her unprecedented $500 Million, multi-year touring and performing deal which she signed in 2017," the memo reads. "Unfortunately, Ms. Dion is refusing to pay the balance of commissions she owes the agency on this historic deal. Please know that we have made every effort to amicably resolve this matter. While we continue to admire and respect her extraordinary talent as an artist, regrettably we are left with no choice but to initiate a legal proceeding to secure the compensation we are owed, and as such we will no longer be representing her."
