Reports state that Halle Berry abruptly dumped her manager of 20 years he was appropriating an inordinate amount time and resources to promote Taraji P. Henson, dubbed the Entertainer of the Year, mostly due to her groundbreaking and culturally impactful Cookie character on the blockbuster “Empire.”

Page Six of the New York Post confirmed that she has officially parted ways with Vincent Cirrincione.

The split happened about a year ago but a Page Six source claims that at least part of the reason she decided to bounce was due to him devoting more of his focus to Henson.

“Taraji’s on a hit show and it’s her moment right now. Halle has had a bad run with films, and her TV show was canceled,” said the source.

Berry’s rep denied that angle, telling Page Six:

“That’s completely false. They’re friends.”

Another insider added, “It was just time to change gears. It’s all amicable. She was just ready for new management.”

Berry recently signed with Suzan Bymel’s Management 360. Hopefully, this fresh start will reignite the Academy Award-winning actress (Monsters Ball).
