‘Manager, may I?’ it is once again

From the Associated Press

Usher’s mother is back as his manager following a much publicized split.

The 29-year-old superstar announced Thursday that he has ended his partnership with celebrity manager Benny Medina, whose clients include Mariah Carey, and has rehired Jonnetta Patton.

Patton had managed her son’s career since he was a teen star. But the multi-platinum performer broke with his mother in 2007, saying he just wanted her to focus on being his mom.
