Pop Tart Olivia Rodrigo Dumps Manager Who Made Her Famous for Bigger Name in Hollywood
As my late friend, John Connolly used to say, “this doesn’t make her a bad person.”
Pop tart of the year Olivia Rodrigo dumped her original manager last month. Kristen Smith made Rodrigo a star with the song “Driver’s License” and the album, “Sour.” Now Rodrigo is nominated for a bunch of Grammys. She’s 18 years old for a few more days.
Now, after ditching Smith, Rodrigo has signed with a big management company. Lighthouse Management + Media‘s Aleen Keshishian and Zack Morgenroth are taking over. They manage Selena Gomez, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Rudd, among others. Thanks to hitsdailydouble.com for the scoop.
Cue the Disney song, “tale as old as time…” Most new stars struggle along with a manager who devotes themselves to creating fame, buzz, and success.Then they dump them. See: “Broadway Danny Rose.”
