Dancehall artiste, Gully Bop and his manager, Karl Durrant are today at odds over whether Durrant still holds the above position.
The news follows a revelation made by Bops’ ex-fiancé, Shauna Chin who told the STAR that the entertainer was no longer being managed by Durrant. Chin was being interviewed by the STAR after news surfaced that she and Bop were headed for a re-union.
However, while answering questions regarding her and Bop’s apparent ‘makeup’ Chin let it slip that Bop and Durrant’s work relationship was on the rocks.
“He and Karl Durrant had a falling out and so I’m helping him to get a new manager so he can get back on his feet,” she said.
“Bop and I are not getting back together but I still care about him and want to see things work out for the best for him so I’m helping him out with some things.”
She went on to say that she will not be taking up the job as Bop’s new manager as she doesn’t want to complicate things between the two.
When questioned on the issue at hand, Bop did not get into details. He stated instead that whatever Chin said was the truth. “I am not signed to anyone innu so whatever Chin say a so it go,” he said.
When the STAR contacted Durrant however, he seemed unaware of the recent developments.
“I spoke to Bop this morning and he didn’t say anything to me about that,” he said while explaining that Bop was not officially signed to him as an artiste.
“I have 14 artistes that I officially represent. I did not sign Bop. He asked me to help him out when the whole Chin/padlock saga went down and I agreed. Right now, I’m no longer representing him in any way as far as business is concerned. I have nothing against him and wish him all the best in the future,” he added.
