J.Lo and Manager -- Who Fired Who?

1/14/2008 3:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer LopezIt's all over between Jennifer Lopez and her manager, music biz legend Irving Azoff. Our Azoff sources tell TMZ he just fired J.Lo for being "unprofessional" and for allowing hubby Marc Anthony to "constantly meddle."

The mama-to-be got a letter from Azoff last week, we're told, detailing "in blunt terms" why he was ditching her as a client after less than a year. There was also a "heated phone call" last week between Jenny's handlers and Azoff.

But Lopez's rep tells TMZ stories of a bitter split are completely untrue. The rep says "she let him go on Friday with no drama." As for the letter? Jen's camp has no knowledge of it.

Stay tuned ...

Lopez has nobody to blame but herself for her last 3 disasterous albums, beginning with "Rebirth".

TYPICAL LATINO WOMEN ALWAYS TAKE A BACK SEAT TO THEIR MEN. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WOMEN'S LIBERATION EVEN MEANS. JUST COOK THE RICE AND BEANS AND HAVE THE BABIES.

JLO'S ALMOST 40 YEARS OLD ANYWAY HER MOVIE CAREER IS SOON WASHED UP WHICH IS WHY SHE NEEDED TO TOUR TO MAKE MONEY IN 2007 AND GIVE HER ANOREXIC UGLY LATINO HUSBAND SOMETHING TO DO TO EARN MONEY!

After further review... you're just Jenny from the block.

Some like you a little, nobody a lot.

Just go back where you came from.

BTW, your husband looks like a nasty hobbit with AIDS.

I am thinking that Jennifer is going to get twins but not give birth to them. Any other woman having twins are usually HUGE and on bed rest the last trimester. She does not look pregnant. Her face looks normal. The big clothes are just to throw us off.

It's not like it's the first time. When she let's her lame-ass hubby stick his nose in, she always gets burned. Her career has been lookin' real shakey for some time now. His? In Puerto Rico only.

Let's just hope the baby looks like her and not the daddy.

Let's just hope the baby/babies look like her. Her hubby is a control freak and it is too bad she gave up a great career for him.

Standards are badly needed.    

He*l, yeah, her face looks so pregnant here I thought it was Leeza Gibbons in this photo. J-Lo doesn't have to worry about anything but those babies; she makes more interest on her money in a week than most of you make in 10 years. If she wants to cook rice and beans, they'll be the best damn beans on the market. Lol.

She's not musically talented enough to have him represent her. All of her vocals are the result of studio magic!

#15 not like the rest of the girls . . . well you can hardly call JHO a girl, and in her time she busted some relationships and not just her own.

This report sounds like spin from her camp. He let her go, most likely, and she wants to save face. None of her acting gigs in the last 5 years have left an impression (she showed early promise in "Selena" and also starring opposite George Clooney--but what of substance has there been since then?). Time to re-evaluate what direction she'd like to move in. Her music may sell, but I can't say I like it much.
I don't care for all the bigoted remarks against Latinos. Her talent is at issue here, not her ancestry.

Irving Azoff has managed The Eagles since 1974 and its members' solo careers. He also manages Christina Aguilera, Journey, Van Halen and Boston. He also briefly managed Styx around the release of Kilroy Was Here before he stepped down to become President of MCA Records in 1983 and his assistant Howard Kaufman took over (he oversees the careers of Chicago, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Fleetwood Mac and many others). Irving is one of few managers that are not stupid. Other great managers were the late Peter Grant (Led Zeppelin's old manager), Bill Curbishley (The Who, Judas Priest, the members of Zeppelin now), Tony Smith (Genesis and its individual members since 1973 and now one of Pink Floyd's managers) and the late Steve O'Rourke (who managed Pink Floyd from 1968 until his death in 2003). J-Ho Ho Ho deserves to go-go-go.

I guess just because Marc Anthony looks like a 12 year old, he must still have the napoleon complex big time.
Why do people make these people feel like they are talented. They all get huge heads.

So many of these lip syncers think they are all that. The Jonas Brothers, all the Disney High School Musical Kid, the Simpson Sisters. Of and now there is that little money machine Miley Cyrus.

Save your money and support someone with talent!
