Latin star Marc Anthony has axed the manager who launched his wife Jennifer Lopez' career - in favour of his brother.

Tommy Mottola, the former head of Sony music and ex-husband of Mariah Carey, masterminded Lopez' rise to fame and hoped his close links with Anthony would lead to him working with her again.

But Anthony has rehired his brother BIGRAM ZAYAS as manager, renewing the partnership they enjoyed before Mottola.

A source tells gossip website PageSix.com, "Marc missed (his brother) so much and he doesn't trust anyone else."
