Over the weekend, a report from British tabloid The Sun sparked rumors that Mariah Carey had split with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation management after an “explosive meeting which did not go well at all.” The Sun reported that a source said that Carey is working on a new album and was seeking other management. However, Mariah herself shut down the rumor on Twitter this morning, quoting her longtime business partner Jay-Z and sharing a clip from their 1999 collaboration “Heartbreaker” to remind followers just how deep the roots of their partnership run.

Jay Z might be able to fuck with a lot of people, but he can’t fuck with Mariah Carey. Not the woman who gave him his first number one single. https://t.co/QSGRLsMATP

I’m not really surprised at the split between Mariah Carey and Jay Z’s Roc Nation because while “Caution” served as her most critically acclaimed work, I feel like the era was just mishandled. From the singles choices to the live performances and Queen Mariah deserves the best. pic.twitter.com/1K7bsszubk

WHO COULD’VE SEEN THIS COMING: Mariah Carey allegedly leaves Jay Z’s management company Roc Nation after allegedly having an explosive meeting that did not go well. Mariah allegedly made it clear in the meeting she wants nothing more to do with Jay. pic.twitter.com/3M73E8OVO7

“The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker!!'” she wrote. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****”!'” The final quote of her missive comes, of course, from Jay-Z’s 2001 Blueprint single “Izzo (H.O.V.A.),” on which Jay addressed naysayers and detractors: “He who does not feel me / Is not real to me, therefore he doesn’t exist / So poof – vamoose, son of a b*tch!”

Clearly, Mariah Carey has similar feelings toward The Sun and its unnamed source. It wasn’t the first time the longstanding pop-R&B icon used her social platforms to clear up misunderstandings. In May, she jokingly teased a Baltimore rapper who sampled her 2005 hit “Shake It Off,” but eventually revealed she had allowed the use of the sample after Questlove got in touch. Meanwhile, Jay-Z is said to be expanding Roc Nation’s already extensive list of services to include television and film production sometime in near future.
