Dupri 'Forced Out' Of Virgin

Hip-hop producer JERMAINE DUPRI has reportedly been forced out of his job at Virgin Records after disappointing sales of his girlfriend JANET JACKSON's comeback album. Dupri, who was head of urban music at the record company, was partially credited with relaunching MARIAH CAREY's career with monster hit THE EMANCIPATION OF MIMI, but his work on Jackson's 20 YO has only shifted 500,000 copies three weeks into its release. According to Fox News' ROGER FRIEDMAN, the CD also dropped an astonishing 77 per cent in sales in its second week, prompting Dupri to quit the company under pressure from management late last week (ends22OCT06).
