We just learned that Chris Brown has fired manager Tina Davis. According to the New York Post, Brown is “looking for a whole new team” to replace his current crew, “starting with his manager, Tina Davis.”
Davis was cited as the “other woman” who sent texts to Brown the night before the Grammys, causing the fight in the Lamborghini. Police reports stated Brown had a “previous sexual relationship” with Davis, who’s managed him since he was 16. Davis blasted “rumors” of any texts or sex, saying she and Brown were strictly “manager and client.”
But it isn’t just Davis – Brown is said to be “upset with his whole team,” including publicity-loving lawyer Mark Geragos and p.r. man Mike Sitrick.
The insider added: “Chris wanted to apologize [for the alleged beat-down] much earlier . . . and he was upset when the apology was finally released because it sounded so insincere.” Brown’s business attorney, Kenny Meiselas, said, “We are very happy with Chris’ team and there are no changes.”
Meanwhile, don’t believe reports that Rihanna is recording a song with Brown. Our insider says, “She hasn’t seen him since they got back from Miami.” However, “she hasn’t made up her mind yet . . . she’s not completely sure she’s done with him yet.”
Rihanna’s people, including her management and label, are pressuring her to drop him, says the insider. “They want her to stand her ground. If she goes back to him, it would be a classic abuse case and impact her ability to be the strong, independent woman that her fans think she is and that her songs say she is.”
UPDATE: Chris Brown’s manager, Tina Davis, rumored to be the woman whose text message played a role in the Feb. 8 altercation between Brown and Rihanna, has flat-out denied, via her attorney, ever having had a romantic relationship with the R&B star.
According to the New York Daily News, Davis broke her silence Wednesday to deny she’s sleeping with her teen client and shoot down reports she sent a racy text message that preceded Rihanna’s brutal beating.
“The relationship between Ms. Davis and Mr. Brown is that of manager and client,” said Davis’ lawyer Marshall Grossman. “There has never been any other relationship. The rumors in circulation are false.”
He insisted that “there are no e-mails between Ms. Davis and Mr. Brown of the type which have been described in media reports.”
