Harry Styles Drops Modest! Management And Hires His ‘Top US Agent’ Friend Jeff Azoff
The fandom is obviously SUPER upset…
It’s safe to say that when it comes to Modest! Management, the One Direction fandom have some pretty strong feelings.
So we reckon they’ll be quite excited to hear that Harry Styles has broken ties with the company and opted to sign with his friend Jeffrey Azoff.
Don’t panic though, because Jeff isn’t just a pal, he also happens to be a ‘top US agent’ and is apparently even wanting to ‘invest in a new Hollywood management company’ with the star.
According to The Sun, Harry’s pulled this move because he wants to completely break free of One Direction.
But could people just stop pretending that being in 1D was like some kind of five-year long nightmare?
Haz probably just wants to be looked after by someone who he knows has his best interests at heart, because he’s a sensitive little soul.
Anyway, a source has told the paper: “Harry is done with One Direction. He wants to completely disassociate with the band and that includes any professional connection.
“His new team will be about launching him as a solo superstar by around this time next year so the work is starting now.
“The message from Harry to the other boys is pretty clear that he doesn’t see 1D together for a long time if at all.”
Now that Harry’s found a new PR firm and new management, it’s thought his next step will be ditching Syco too and finding a brand new label for his solo career.
And while Simon Cowell is ‘keen’ to sign him, ‘the feeling is that he probably wants a completely fresh start’.
The source added: “Universal and Warner are both likely to make big money bids too and he could end up signing one of the most lucrative record deals in recent history.”
Seriously, is Niall the only person actually chilling out on this hiatus or what?
