J. Lo Drops The Firm's Kwatinetz As Manager

9/25/2006 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez leaves manager Jeff Kwatinetz.TMZ has learned exclusively that Jennifer Lopez parted ways over the weekend with her manager of over a year, Hollywood heavyweight Jeff Kwatinetz, head of management company The Firm.

The actress-singer-fashion icon's last year has been less than fruitful professionally: Her 2005 album "Rebirth" was a disappointment, and though her role in "An Unfinished Life" with Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman was critically praised, the film itself failed to generate the expected awards-season buzz.

The split comes just before a flurry of professional activity for J.Lo. "Bordertown," in which she plays a journalist investigating the murder of young female factory workers and stars with Antonio Banderas, will be released in October, and "El Cantante," a biographical account of one of the pioneers of salsa (the dance, not the condiment), Hector Lavoe, in which she stars alongside her husband Marc Anthony, just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, where it received positive reviews and is scheduled to be released in the next several months. Her album of Spanish-language ballads "Como Ama Una Mujer" ("The Way A Woman Loves") is also scheduled for release in November.

In the last year, several managers have left The Firm, taking with them such high-profile acts as the Dixie Chicks, Orlando Bloom and Natalie Portman. The Firm issued a statement to TMZ, saying, "Jennifer is a dear friend of The Firm and will remain so regardless of the business relationship. This was a decision based on differing styles and expectations and we wish her the absolute best."

A rep for Lopez tells TMZ they have no comment at this time.

Aye caramba she looks old!! I know Marc Anthony just turned 48...I wouldn't put her age too far behind that. Sad really she has gone down big time in looks since being with him, not that she was ever anything great...

jlo's career is failing because she SUCKS! She can hire and fire all the agents she wants- she cant act or sing and we all know it so we dont go see her movies or buy her crappy records- she should open up a dance school and forget about it!

If J Lo gets one more shot of Botox she'll be frozen with that emotionless look forever.

Jennifer Lopez keeos firing her agents, managers, hairstylists, make-up people,etc. When she gets bad media and news coverage, she starts FIRING anybody she can think of. I have never seen anyone so talentless make sooo MUCH MINEY!! She cant sing, she cant act, she cant speak, dancing is ok, BUT she just doesnt have GOD-given talent.

Tom Cruise & JLO have same professional habits: They both start FIRING people when media is mean or when their movies BOMMB. we are sick of both of them!!

GO AWAY JLO & TOM!

I love JLo - can't wait to see her new movies; glad to hear she's getting good reviews for her work - took a while, but I knew she was a good actress.
