Jermaine Durpi and Mariah Carey parted ways professionally a few weeks ago after her last album didn’t perform well, but JD isn’t happy that most assumed Mariah did the dumping.
In a recent interview with VLAD TV, Jermaine talks about parting ways with Mariah but also jokingly shades her marriage to Nick Cannon in the process.
“That’s the story that people make because that’s what people…People think in their minds that that’s exactly how it has to happen. It can’t be…It just can’t possibly be that Jermaine woke up one morning and didn’t want to do it no more. That just can’t possibly happen, right? That just can’t possibly be the thing. Like he had to get dropped because that’s what happens in the world. N*ggas get dropped. But nobody else has a mind to say ‘You know what? I don’t really wanna do this sh*t no more. I got other sh*t I want to do. But I’m not that smart, right? I couldn’t do that. That’s impossible.’ That’s what I’m saying. It’s crazy that people just make these stories. I wasn’t dropped. I chose that…I chose to do this because me and Mariah are friends, right? First and foremost. And we make hit records in the studio…This was the ongoing joke. I have a relationship with Mariah better than her and her husband. I’ve known her longer than her and her husband known each other. With that being said, you don’t want to f*ck that up. I saw a lot of things happening with inside of me being her manager that could have f*cked that up.”
