Minogue Splits With Management

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue has split with her long-time manager and indicated that at least for now, she's going to focus on her acting career.

According to Billboard, Minogue split with her manager Terry Blamey right around the New Year and according to Blamey, was an amicable parting. Blamey, a native of Melbourne, who is now based in London, has been managing Minogue for 25 years.

"After the self-imposed demands of K25, an incredibly successful year spent celebrating Kylie's 25 years in music, throughout the world, and indeed after twenty-five years of hard work and undeniable dedication to create one of the most successful global music careers, Kylie has decided to pull back slightly from the pressures of her career and devote more time to herself and her acting. This is not to say she will be retiring from music, just taking a bit of a break," Blamey wrote in a note to colleagues on New Year's Eve.

Blamey is the only artist that Blamey manages. He told Billboard that he will be pursuing other opportunities and spending more time with his family. As of yet, no announcement has been made regarding new management for Minogue. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
