Mariah Carey Leaves Roc Nation Management & Partners With Range Media

Sources confirm to Variety that Mariah Carey has parted ways with Roc Nation and struck a partnership with the upstart Range Media Partners, where she will work with Melissa Ruderman, who oversaw her career at Roc Nation and left to join Range in January, as Variety exclusively announced. Ruderman is a managing partner at the firm.

The signing comes after a tabloid media story blaming the parting on an alleged blowout between Carey and Roc founder Jay-Z, which Carey quashed humorously on social media on Monday. She had been with Roc Nation since 2017; the news was first reported by Deadline.

The move is the latest in a long string of management changes for Carey — who has been managed by Roc, Stella Bulochnikov and Kevin Liles in just the past few years — although she has a long history with Ruderman. In 2005, Ruderman’s first job in the music industry was with veteran manager Benny Medina, where she handled day-to-day duties for Carey and helped steer her multi-platinum “The Emancipation of Mimi album.” Over her five years at Roc Nation, Ruderman executed for Carey two consecutive multi-year residencies at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a Christmas TV deal with Apple, and a publishing contract that yielded the New York Times best-seller, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.” Other artists with whom Ruderman has worked include Nicole Scherzinger, Miley Cyrus, Big Sean and Christina Aguilera.

Carey’s previous managers also include her ex-husband Tommy Mottola, Randy Jackson, Red Light Management and Jermaine Dupri, among others

Range Media Partners was founded in Sept. 2020 by Peter Micelli and a group of high-profile defectors from super-agencies, including CAA, UTA and WME. Its clients span film, television, music, literary, and activism and include Naomi Ackie, Michael Bay, Emilia Clarke, Bradley Cooper, Johnny Depp, Taron Egerton, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy, Anna Kendrick, Keira Knightley, Gabrielle Union and the Michael Crichton Estate.
