2018 Roc Nation THE BRUNCH

Mariah Carey denies reports of ‘explosive’ meeting with Jay-Z

“The only ‘explosive’ situation I‘d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent”

 Mariah Carey isn’t letting the rumors surrounding her professional relationship with Jay-Z go on any longer.

The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer took to Twitter on Monday to respond to reports that circulated over the weekend, which claimed she departed from her management deal with Roc Nation because of a “blazing row” during a meeting about the future of her career.

Carey had the perfect response to the rumors, completely shutting them down while citing her number one song with Jay-Z, “Heartbreaker,” before quoting one of his famous lines from his hit, “Izzo (H.O.V.A).”

“The only ‘explosive’ situation I‘d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ”Heartbreaker”!!” she tweeted on Monday morning. “To the people who make up these lies I say ”Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****”!”


These rumors all started from an exclusive report by The Sun over the weekend, claiming the singer left Jay-Z’s Roc Nation–which she signed with in 2017–after a “blazing row” during a meeting about the future of her career.

“Mariah and Jay had an explosive meeting which did not go well at all,” a source close to the situation reportedly told The Sun. “She has made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him and has called it quits with Roc Nation. She will formally depart in the next few weeks.”

The source added, “It is a shame because they had done some great work in the last few years. But this meeting couldn’t have gone much worse. Mariah has been talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her as she takes her next steps.”

But now that Mariah has spoken out, we know those reports aren’t true.

With that being said, Carey is no longer listed as a represented artist on Roc Nation’s website. So, whatever the status of their personal relationship, the fact that they parted ways professionally seems to true--but luckily, according to Mariah, things are still good between her and Hov.

No matter what rumors are going around about Mariah Carey, we can always count on Mimi herself to set them straight.
