After he split with his longtime manager...
Rolling Stone reports that John Mayer has hired Lady Gaga's former manager Troy Carter.
The two reportedly knew each other through mutual friends and got together after Mayer parted ways with his longtime manager Michael McDonald in December. Mayer and McDonald did not give a reason for their split after working together for more than 10 years. Carter and Gaga split days before the release of ARTPOP in 2013.
Carter is said to feel "liberated" after the split with Gaga, which was reportedly due to "creative differences." Gaga didn't make a statement, but she did recently release an open letter where she criticized former aides and said she was mismanaged over ARTPOP. She wrote: "Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result...It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you."
Mayer recently released his sixth album Paradise Valley in August 2013.
