[lastfm]Bon Jovi[/lastfm] have announced that they are parting ways with their long-time manager [lastfm]Jack Rovner[/lastfm]. In a statement provided to the New York Post, frontman [lastfm]Jon Bon Jovi[/lastfm] gave no specific reason for the split but says they are parting on excellent terms.
“The boring truth is we decided to go in different directions and thanked both Jack and his team for a great job. He is and will remain a close friend and someone who I will be very grateful to for his dedication,” reads the statement.
Though Rovner’s agency, the Vector Group, also avoided any specific reason for the split, rumors are swirling that the decision was linked to fan unrest over the high ticket prices for the band’s recent 12-night stand in London. Fan anger came to a head after several diehards, who had paid nearly $1,500 for tickets, were denied a meet-and-greet with the band.
A spokesperson from Vector adds: “Jack and everyone at Vector are very proud of the work they did together over the last five years, including their first Grammy Awards, first number one chart debuts globally, and even a number one on the country charts.”
