After parting ways with Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina is seeking a new singer and actress to mould into a superstar - and Brandy and Mya are frontrunners for the role.

According to internet news site EURWEB, the singing beauties have met with Medina with a view to signing management deals.

A source says, "It's not a done deal, but let's just say the ink is wet on the contract."

Other sources also claim CHICAGO stunner Mya has been meeting with Medina about representation. Since appearing in Chicago, the MY LOVE IS LIKE... WO singer has landed parts in the films Dirty Dancing 2, HAVANA KNIGHTS and SHALL WE DANCE opposite Richard Gere and, ironically, J.LO.

Lopez ditched Medina last month (JUN03), before filing a complaint with California labour officials claiming he misrepresented her, acted as an unlicensed talent agent and withheld money that was rightfully hers.
