MANILA, Philippines - Singer Charice has fired her long-time manager, Grace Mendoza.
Charice made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday, adding that her new “point of contact” is her personal assistant and road manager, Canadian Courtney Blooding.
“A bit of news, Grace Mendoza is no longer my manager. I thank her for the work and time she has spent with me. Courtney Blooding is the new point of contact for me. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org,” she said.
Days before her announcement about Mendoza, Charice vented her anger on Twitter over people who are saying bad things about her.
“I do not like people talking sh** about me, my friends or my family. Specially when you know that they’re lying. I try to respect these people, but sometimes, I just want to talk to each one of them and say, ‘leave us alone, bitches,’” she said.
“At sa mga ayaw pang tigilan ang hate, thank you na rin. Let it go and maybe some of you, please get a nice job. Most of you, Filipinos pa naman. If you can’t respect me, kung ayaw talaga, that’s fine. Just support the girls. Not even me. Just the girls. Now, stop hating… and go to bed. Pahinga ka na.. Seryoso.. Walang mangyayari kung puro hate lang… Tulog na. Madaling araw na.”
In 2010, Charice and Mendoza allegedly had a rift after the latter prematurely announced that the singer is joining the US hit musical series “Glee.”
Currently, Charice is one of the mentor-judges of ABS-CBN's talent reality show "The X Factor Philippines."
