Pitbull splits from longtime manager

Rapper Pitbull has parted ways with his manager of eight years.

The I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) hitmaker, real name Armando Perez, recruited Charles Chavez of Latium Entertainment to oversee his career in 2007, but the pair has since amicably ended its business relationship, according to Billboard.com.

Pitbull, who is currently on tour in China, enjoyed huge success during his time with Chavez, collaborating with the likes of Ne-Yo and Afrojack, Kesha, and Jennifer Lopez, and landing the job of host of the American Music Awards in 2013 and again in 2014.

He also joined forces with Enrique Iglesias for a co-headlining tour last year (14), which was extended into 2015, and secured a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which will be unveiled later this year (15).

Pitbull has yet to reveal his new management plans.
