Clip video 'Play' Jennifer Lopez STORYLINE: JENNIFER LOPEZ SPLITS WITH MANAGEMENT TEAM Jennifer Lopez has parted company with ICM, after four years with the management agency. International Creative Management confirmed to APTN that the star is no longer with the agency, but declined to state whose decision was behind the split. The star has worked with several different ICM agents since 1998, but has been represented solely by president and vice chairman Ed Limato since he took her on as a client in June. On Monday night, Limato withdrew from personally representing Lopez, - reports claim he and others at the agency found the star to be frequently unavailable for consultation. Lopez left the agency on Tuesday. Industry insiders claim Lopez was given the push. An internal e-mail sent by Limato to staff, then leaked to the Daily Variety read: "We have decided that we no longer wish to represent Jennifer Lopez, and we have so informed her manager. " Sources confirm the reports in the trade press are correct - despite other claims that a spokeswoman for Lopez insists the decision was a mutual one. The singer has yet to sign up with a replacement. Talent agencies are vying to step in, but according to sources, while the star has been meeting with agencies over the last few months, she has not met with individual agents. Lopez will continue to be represented by Handprint Entertainment's Benny Medina and attorney Barry Hirsch, as will her newly launched Columbia Pictures based production company Nuyorican Prods. During the past four years, Lopez she has worked with four different business managers and two talent managers, one of which is her current partner Medina. The star has enjoyed huge success as a recording artist, selling millions of albums, but her attempts to cross over into acting have had mixed results. While Lopez starred in moderate box office hits 'The Cell' and 'The Wedding Planner' she also featured in less well received features including 'Angel Eyes' and 'Enough.' The star will soon be seen again on the big screen in December in Made in Manhattan" with Ralph Fiennes. More film releases are due next year, with "Gigi" and "Jersey Girl", both with real life boyfriend Ben Affleck. Jennifer Lopez releases her new album 'This Is Me... Then' in November.
