Hits Magazine Tip of the Week

Manager Rob Kahane's split with client George Michael has drastically increased music industry speculation over a possible settlement between Michael and his record label, Sony. Michael lost a much-publicized British court battle with Sony after he sued to be released from his contract. Kahane's exit had been anticipated for some time, and there's been more than a little chatter over the long-term effect of his testimony in the court case. Meanwhile, various people are already jockeying for position as the singer decides who his next manager will be. Note: Hits magazine is a weekly music industry trade publication.
