Mariah Carey has reportedly dropped her American Idol co-judge Randy Jackson as her manager, with insiders claiming the pair's "hectic" schedules was the reason for the split.

The 'Touch My Body' singer has now allegedly signed to Red Light Management which represents acts such as Alicia Keys, Steven Tyler and Radiohead, just as she premiered her new single '#Beautiful' earlier this week.

Randy and Mariah first met in the 1990's when the producer was working as an A&R man for Columbia Records and helped the diva get her staggering $18 million 'American Idol' contract.

However, the singer's first run on the show has been met with explosive disagreements both on and off the show and rumours have recently surfaced that after just one season the star could be leaving the show being replaced by former judge Jennifer Lopez.

The biggest conflicts from the show seemed to be a clash of the divas as both Mariah and Nicki Minaj never appeared to see eye to eye since a dramatic argument during the early auditions which was leaked on the web before the show had even aired.

If anything, Randy seemed to be Mariah's best friend on the show, never appearing to show any signs of friction.

Mariah released her new single '#beautiful' this week featuring Miguel after teasing fans with new music for months. Her new album is expected to be released later this year.
