R&B star Keyshia Cole has fired her manager following poor sales of her latest album.
The singer took to her Twitter.com page this week (beg17Jan11) to announce she has parted ways with her longtime representative, Manny Halley.
She writes, "Would like for u guys to know tht (sic) Manny Halley is no longer my management... Someone said if the people around u (sic) won't change, change the people around you."
The news comes just weeks after her fourth studio album, Calling All Hearts, entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at a lowly number nine in late December (10), selling only 181,300 copies in America as of 9 January (11).
The figures will be disappointing for Cole, whose previous three records all went platinum.
