Benny Medina's client roster has been shrinking for quite a while now. In 2003, he was fired by Jennifer Lopez, who later filed suit against the Hollywood power-manager for misappropriating money. He lost another major client last year when Tyra Banks dropped him amid rumors success had gone to his head. ("His perk list is bigger than hers. Everything from private jets and votive candles that the staff has to light before he gets to the set," said one source.) Last month, Usher dumped him; last week, Page Six reported that Benny's biggest remaining star, Mariah Carey, pushed him to the side, reportedly because she caught wind that he was courting former client (and Mariah rival) Jennifer Lopez. Benny denied the rumors and headed off on vacation. And it turns out Mariah wasn't acting crazy after all!
Lopez was spotted in St. Tropez today walking with an unidentified man. We're happy to report that it's none other than the founder of Handprint Entertainment himself, who, we now hear, flew over to France with Lopez. The duo appear to have put the past behind them. They've been hanging out on Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's yacht and been spotted in town shopping. Clearly Benny will travel the globe for his clients, although it's probably a lot easier now that he has so few of them.
