Dua Lipa has parted ways with longtime manager Ben Mawson and management firm, Tap Management, and reportedly hired her dad to replace them.

A source confirmed to Variety that Dua Lipa split from her management, who she signed with in 2013.

“Contrary to other reports, the singer is not currently taking meetings with other management companies, although presumably, she will at some point in the future,” the source told the publication.

Daily Mail has reported that her departure is linked to the size of the cut she receives from recording and commercial deals negotiated on her behalf by Tap Management.

The same publication has said that the three-time Grammy award winner will now be represented by her dad Dukagji Lipa.

However, it seems as though Dua Lipa’s ties to Tap management won’t be completely severed, as she still appears on Tap’s publishing division page. Publishing divisions in the music industry help artists create copyrights to protect their intellectual property.

The news comes just days after the singer kicked off her  Future Nostalgia Tour, a tour that is scheduled to come to Australian shores in November of this year.
