One Direction star Harry Styles has announced his split from his longtime managers. Incidentally the announcement coincided with his 22nd birthday. The One Direction star is currently on a hiatus from the boy band, but he is keeping busy by signing a new deal with Creative Artists Agency’s Jeffrey Azoff, the son of music industry mogul and longtime Eagles handler Irving Azoff.
Executives at Modest Management confirmed the big news in a statement which reads, “We wish Harry the very best. It has been a real pleasure working with him. “Harry is a total gentleman, and we know our good friend Jeffrey Azoff will look after him. We look forward to sharing some great wine with them next time we are in LA.”
Several reports suggest Style’s management move is similar to that of his former bandmate Zayn Malik, who recently launched his solo career after quitting the band last year.
