Singer Charice had recently fired her manager, Grace Mendoza. The X-Factor mentor-judge made the announcement via her account on the social networking website Twitter on August 7.
"A bit of news, Grace Mendoza is no longer my manager. I thank her for the work and time she has spent with me. Courtney Blooding is the new point of contact for me. You can reach her firstname.lastname@example.org," read her tweet.
According to an article by ABS-CBNNews.com, Courtney Blooding was Charice’s former personal assistant and road manager. It was also revealed that Charice and Grace had a fallout when the latter revealed in advance that the singer will be joining the TV show Glee.
A few days before her announcement, Charice had also ranted about her bashers on Twitter.
"I do not like people talking sh** about me, my friends or my family. Specially when you know that they’re lying. I try to respect these people, but sometimes, I just want to talk to each one of them and say, 'leave us alone, b*tches,'" read one tweet.
"At sa mga ayaw pang tigilan ang hate, thank you na rin," she wrote in a another tweet. "Let it go and maybe some of you, please get a nice job. Most of you, Filipinos pa naman. If you can't respect me, kung ayaw talaga, that's fine. Just support the girls. Not even me. Just the girls. Now, stop hating…and go to bed. Pahinga ka na... Seryoso... Walang mangyayari kung puro hate lang… Tulog na. Madaling araw na (And to those who won’t stop hating, thank you as well. Let it go and maybe some of you, please get a nice job. It’s a shame that most of you are Filipinos. If you can’t respect me, if you really don’t want to, that’s fine. Just support the girls. Not even me. Just the girls. Now, stop hating… and go to bed. Get some rest, seriously. Nothing’s going to happen if we keep hating… go to sleep. It’s early morning already.)."
