Azealia Banks - Azealia Banks Parts Ways With Lady Gaga's Manager

Up-and-coming rapper Azealia Banks has ditched Lady Gaga's manager, less than two months after signing to his roster.
Troy Carter offered the rising star a management deal in April (12) and Banks, who signed to Universal Music in January (12), revealed she was excited to work with the man who has helped take the Poker Face hitmaker's career to new heights.
Announcing the news on Twitter.com, she wrote, "a whole new set of resources to take advantage of... We're gonna vamp this up and make it official... No more ghetto mixes and closet recording... I have a budget now!"
But it appears the partnership has not worked out for the pair - according to the New York Daily News, Banks has parted ways with Carter and hired her boyfriend Dave Holmes to represent her.
The publication reports Banks has been dating Holmes for a few months. He also manages British rock stars Coldplay.
