Mariah Carey has denied that her split from Roc Nation followed an ‘explosive’ fight with Jay-Z.
Carey signed with Roc Nation back in 2017 after she fired her former manager Stella Bulochnikov. The Sun then reported that Carey had decided to leave the company following a dispute with label boss Jay-Z. A source told the outlet, “Mariah and Jay had an explosive meeting which did not go well at all. She has made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him and has called it quits with Roc Nation.
“She will formally depart in the next few weeks. It is a shame because they had done some great work in the last few years. But this meeting couldn’t have gone much worse. Mariah has been talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her as she takes her next steps,” the source added. “She isn’t letting this stand in her way.”
However, Carey has now come out and said there’s no truth to her leaving Roc Nation because of an argument with Hova. “The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” Carey tweeted. She added: “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! — Vamoose, sonofa*****’!”
The tweet also quoted a clip from a 2001 single by Jay-Z titled ‘Izzo (HOVA)’, which refers to her hit ‘Heartbreaker’, which the two artists collaborated on in 1999.
Despite Carey stating there’s no truth to the ‘explosive’ falling out, she is no longer placed on the roster on Roc Nation’s website.
