Banks Parts Company With Manager

Former supermodel TYRA BANKS has fired her manager BENNY MEDINA, according to reports. The star confirms she has parted company with manager Benny Medina and his agency Handprint Entertainment, but claims the split is amicable. A joint statement issued by both parties reads, "Tyra Banks is a highly regarded artist, entrepreneur and producer, and I respect her vision for developing her own bankable brand." "Tyra and Handprint Entertainment look forward to the opportunity to work together on existing or new ventures. This is a great thing for everyone involved." However, a source from TelePictures - which syndicates Banks' talk show - tells the New York Daily News she was angry "his (Medina's) perk list is bigger than hers. Everything from private jets and votive candles that the staff has to light before he gets to the set. He forgot who the star was." But a representative from Telepictures has refuted the claims, and insists Medina will continue to have a say in Banks' career: "We have a good relationship with Benny, and we appreciate his contributions to the show. He will continue as an executive consultant on the show."
