ICONIC R&B Singer Stephanie Mills FIRES Manager Hiriam Hicks because he Mishandled Her Money!
According to NYDN reports, Iconic Grammy winning R&B star Stephanie Mills has ended her working relationship with music mogul Hiriam Hicks, citing financial discrepancies as the reason.
The 60-year-old vocalist, who headlined a sold-out Mother’s Day concert at the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, N.J., on Sunday, tells us Hicks was fired the following day.
“Often times when this happens to an artist, they’re embarrassed and don’t want anyone to know,” Mills told Confidential. But according to Mills, as a single mother raising a special needs son, she feels a need to show strength where she feels that she’s been wronged. She says she’s disappointed because she’d “trusted” Hicks.
Hicks, the former president of Island Black Music, had been managing the singer for 3 1/2 years. Mills says Universal Attractions will oversee all of her performance dates and concert bookings for the time being. The Brooklyn native tells us she’s weighing her legal options against Hicks and plans to use this opportunity to teach younger artists about the industry.
The singer share this on Instagram confirming the situation.
However, Hicks denies the story."Your information is incorrect," he wrote in an email. "Ms. Mills and I have an ongoing working relationship"
