"Usher has dissolved his management arrangement with Benny Medina and has re-engaged Jonnetta Patton as his manager," his representative said in a statement Wednesday.

According to a last month story in The New York Daily News, Usher was disappointed that his CD "Here I Stand" sold just 433,000 copies in its first week. As a result, the idea of making up with the woman that brought him into this world was broached.

"People have been telling Usher to listen to his mother," an insider told The New York Daily News. "Nobody knows how to sell him better than she does."

Wife Tameka Foster may take issue with that statement; but fans of Usher have taken issue with Foster since she had the gall to marry their heart throb.
