Jermaine Dupri and Mariah Carey go way back. Together they have been responsible for creating some of the Diva's biggest hits- see Always be My Baby/ We Belong Together. But it didn't stop there. The producer was also the Diva's manager for the shortest of time, and like with Janet Jackson, was blamed by fans for "mismanagement" when both flopped while he was captain of their musical ships.
However, it seems JD doesn't want to shoulder the blame for that entirely, spilling some tea while speaking to HipHollywood.
Being so close to the Diva, I'm thinking no lies were told here. But she's older now, and has kids. so I can't blame her for taking a more relaxed approach to her career at this point. It just becomes a problem when people are paying for a substandard product- as is occasionally the case with her live shows.
But what do you guys think?
