EXCLUSIVE! Madonna Did Not Abandon Former Manager, Friends Reveal What Really Happened

| Filed under: Exclusives!Madonna


Those close to Madonna' are very hurt that the sister of her former manager is making false allegations against the Queen of Pop and even blaming Kabbalah for Caresse Henry's death.

The truth of the matter is, Caresse Henry committed suicide a year ago, and she is the only one responsible for her death.

Sources tell us that towards the end of her tenure as Madonna's manager, Caresse developed a drug problem. Madonna attempted to get her help, but Henry refused.

"M even offered to pay for her rehab, but she wouldn't go," an insider tells us. "Caresse took advantage of Madonna, spent money she shouldn't have and was just not able to do her job anymore. M had no choice but to fire her."

Yes, Henry began a romantic relationship with one of Madonna's bodyguards, but we're told that the singer had no issue with that. It was everything else that was rightfully weighing heavy on the Queen of Pop.

Those close to her tell us that after being fired by Madonna, Caresse eventually spiraled out of control and did go to rehab. Unfortunately, as is the case with many addicts, things did not end well for Henry.

Sad all around!

    After Madonna she went to work for Ricky Martin almost immediately.. that job didn't even last 6 months. This woman had a lot of problems

  2. M: says – reply to this


    exactly caresse was known for her big depressions. madonna was always there for her. she worked for ricky martin after that. maybe she wasnt happuy with her life anymore. its not madonans fault or ricky martin faults.if she wasnt able to keep her job she has to be fired. amdonna loved caresse a lot. amdonna has many ppl working with her since the day 1 ,since the beginning. they love to work for madonna but they have to be serious cause she doesnt let ppl abuse. she abused she was a troublemaker at that time she was fired. but amdonna fired her in 2004 he cummited suicide last year. she could had a fight with a friend or a boyfriend. MADONNA has nothing to do with this. what her sister said was pure bullshit.after all this time she is looking for madonnas money.
    if ur fired and u cummited suicide years later what that has to do with the person that fired u?? nothing. comne on.what a stupid thing that caresse sister said

    What are you, Madonna's paid publicist?
    You cannot simply state they are "false allegations" and assert what "the truth of the matter" is. You don't know.
    Your "sources" are entirely one-sided.
    This is appalling. Your slavish devotion to this woman is sickening.

    madonan is always reday to help their friends ,like this. she had to fire her cause she was making bad thing to madonnas career on her replacement was guy oseary. but she never abandon her. she never do that to her friends. caresse was a troublemaker. a very compliucated person . ppl with big depressions cummited suicide. but madonna fired her in 2004 cause her drug problems.madonna hates drugs and of madonna wouldt let a woman like this taking care of her career .madonna is a perfectionist. but in the same way she couldnt let her friend end like that. she offered her help. madonnahelps ppl a lot

    like she did to that little girl who died from cancer. she was a fan of amdonna and madonna was visiting her every day at the hospital.and noone ever knew about that if the family of that girl wouldnt surprise madonna at oprah,madonan does this stuff but she doesnt teel anyone

    i agree with M but what good does it do to vilify the deceased person now? especially since they can't respond.. something reeks of spin control here.

    Its amazing how many people on here know exactly what Madonna would do and how well she treats people. Get a clue. The woman is cold. Now hurry up, I hear there's a special limited edition of Hard Candy in Virgin for sale. It's still in it's original seal and there were only 6 million ever made. Better get four copies while you all can. The perfect compliment to every 35 year old gay guys Madonna memorabilia collection.

    Re: M:
    Stop pretending you know everything about Madonna, like she's your pal and confidante. I bet you half the shit you think know about her is half-truths and lies, and the shit she and her publicist keep you from knowing about her would blow your mind.

  8. M: says – reply to this


    God bless madonna. madonna helps and many ppl dont even know cause she never uses it 4 publicity. she helped many ppl that turned her back.even her brother asshole. everybody wants her money. its hers .she earned. she is a very down on earth woman. everybody that knows her says that. she is very perfectionist at her work. lady gaga said amdonna is the most wonderful person she met. madonna is real deal.but the different is that ppl thing that being strong is being a bitch. no its not. amdona has a huge heart.shes a lovin person.that does charity. that helps and the press doesnt even know. the press should trash those who talk the talk and not those who walk the walk like madonna


  9. M: says – reply to this


    Re: gooby – MAYBE u dont know whats going on . earlier today caresse sister said that her sister suicide was madonna and kabbalah fault. madonna fired caresse in 2004 she cummited suicide last year. after madonna she worked for ricky martin and she was fired again. caresse had problems. madonna was with her since the beginning but in the end things were getting worst and madonna wont let bad things happen to her career but even when she fired her she didnt abandon her. she tried to help but caresse was involved with lovers and blah blah. maybe she was in high depression and a psychologist and ppl that are in high depression can cummit suicide . maybe in that day she had a fight with a boyfriend or even a friend. tahts happens

  10. 10

    She did abandon her…that is her style. Kabbalah crap notwithstanding, HagDonna is a 'My Way or The HighWay' kinda BITCH….Really…I know people who know people who know her, and she is one mean Hag….Insecure people usually are…Just say'n ….Now, her PUBLICITY MACHINE is in over-drive to portray HagDonna as the innocent…yeah, right !

  11. M: says – reply to this


    she could be having a baad day .she could had a fight with a frien dor something.ppl with high depressions do that. for simple reason commited suicide. it happens. of course its not madonnas fault. caresse was probably missing working with madonna but she worked from ricky martin after amdonna and she was fired too.its sad but its the true she had problems and amdonna was shocked when she heard the news.

  12. 12

    mADONNA IS AN UGLY whore TRAMP sLUT skank who has seen more ceilings tha MicheAngelo ! Really….a pathetic excuse for a person - a TOTAL waste of skin when it comes to helping others. She reallt screwed up with that girl's school in Africa, now didn'r she …? NEVER give money to a celebrity's charity - NEVER ! ESPECIALLY THIS HAG'S CHARITIES ! sHE ONLY DOES IT FOR publicity !

  13. 13

    And it sounds to me like Perez & Co are feeling the heat from Madonna's reps, seeing that they basically called him out without even mentioning his name.

  15. 15

    Madonna is partially resposnible. You don't leave your friends behind when they are in a dark place. Madonna seems like a bitch that doesn't give a shit about anyone except herself and being famous. Her charity is only for good PR, she doesn't even know what's going on in her own charity? All the money that was donated went to the big executive to buy cars and mansions.. Madonna you are a sad human being and you are still a disgrace…

    Shame on Madonna and Liz Rosenberg spewing this crap about a deceased woman, just for their own 'damage control'. Madonna will get hers one day. I just hope they bury her face down when she dies so she can see where she's going.

    btw, M, you're ridiculous. But your poorly written Madonna-worshiping drivel is great for laughs, so keep it up!!

  20. 20

    Re M: Half of your post's make no sense, my dear. I don't usually criticize spelling/punctuation error's, as we all make them. However, your post's contain so many, it's hard to follow your thoughts. Just saying.

    I'd kill myself too if I had to smell the stench of failure that emits from that hag Vadge. BTW the Queen of Pop is Britney now, get with it.

    Re: M:

    lol. you're beyond retarded. But keep those dyslexic tantrums about a washed up old hag and her lying ho publicist coming !! This stuff's hilarious. Just remember to take a couple of deep breaths between posts, we wouldn't want you hurting yourself. Your life is so precious. haha.

    btw, once you realize that this old skank doesn't give a hoot about you or your existence either, don't put a bullet in your head too. Madonna's just not worth it. Ask any of her ex-lovers. Even Dennis Rodman said she was pathetic in the sack.

  28. 28

    Madonna went from being a trailer trash chick from Detroit, into a British-speaking Jew without a second thought. She's not even proud of her own heritage. She should be ashamed of herself. She's not even on speaking terms with her own BROTHER !! I guess Liz Rosenberg told her he was 'excess baggage' and so she dumped her own flesh and blood like yesterday's news. She's a pathetic excuse for a human being, and as an artist she hasn't been relevant in 15 odd years now. She was pretty good back in the 80s but she's no longer culturally relevant today. And as much as I hate Piers Morgan too, I have to agree with him that she's not even 'newsworthy' anymore. Nobody cares about her anymore except for crazy obsessed fans like our very own 'M' here.

    Re: M: – You seriously need to get a fucking life ! You are a stalking Madonna post stalker. I ALMOST feel sorry for you.

    I don't know how Madonna treats HER EMPLOYEES, BUT the fact is/was, this woman was AN EMPLOYEE. AN employee can be fired at anytime, no reason needs to be given in NY state, probably doesn't need to be given elsewhere as LONG AS IT IS NOT A DISCRIMINATION MATTER! Anyhoo, she was fired, left, let go, whatever, 6 YEARS BEFORE SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE. Again, we are talking about a job. Maybe, she considered it more than a job, but that is the problem of many. After being fired 6 years AGO, if she was THAT DEPRESSED, her family, her sister, her friends, should have seen that she got treatment for it. Even if she did not have healthcare, money, there are clinics with SLIDING SCALES. I don't want to talk bad about the dead, BUT suicide-THAT IS RARELY SOMEONE ELSES FAULT. Esp. someone WHO LEFT YOUR LIFE SIX YEARS BEFORE. If she was going on about Madonna STILL, she was depressed with an obsession, among other things. A real shame if true, a shame someone close to her couldn't get through to get her to get help

  31. 31

    Bingo!!! Im sure thats the way it went down…granted M can be a bitch!!! but come on she can't make someon kill themseleves unless they're unstable and have issues…hence, this chick had some issues and those demons made her clean her ears with a gun!!!
    M has no tolerance for Drugs… and rightfully so look what a mess this chick was to get fired for drug use when you have a job as M's manager…idiot!!

  32. 32

    Madonna is a cow who lives a shallow existence while grasping at straws in order to find some spirituality to compensate for her superficial life. And ofc it's the woman's own fault she took her life, she worked for Madonna and everyone gravitates towards the reality they believe in and in her case, it was a reality where material things are all important, you will always lose your soul in that life choice. btw: Hey stupid woman…give me $3 Million and i can build at least 20 schools in Malawai! Look up Greg Mortenson "Three Cups of Tea" now that is a Man who helps the poor people in third world countries and could probably build 200 schools with that kind of money. But yeah, I know…you are just looking for your next photo op Joan Crawford.

  33. 33

    Re: M: – bottom line is, you DO NOT KNOW madonna. stop acting like u know everything about the woman. a publicist will NEVER tell u the truth about their clients, period. and who the hell is amdonna?

  34. 34

    Nothing like smearing the dead. Madonna stoops into the gutter to get her point across with those who would dare to stand up to her. Granny with the zombie arms and hands couldn't even hold onto a husband 10 years her junior seeing she wanted his dick on her body and he refused to give it up. Funny how the ex once free of granny re-emerged with a strong box office receipt. Madonna is nothing but a cunning runt.

  35. 35

    Re: M: – damn, your starting to sound like that weird britney fan, robert 2460 or whatever the fuck his screename is. and believe me, that is not someone u want to sound like. i bet u actually think truth or dare is a real depiction of madonna. she actually did her best acting in that movie. i actually enjoy madonnas music and she really is the queen of pop, but she didnt get there by being a nice person. there are countless people who do not say very nice things about the lady. she is known to rid of people she no longer finds useful.

  36. 36

    Don't kill me madonna fans because I love, respect, and admire the woman myself but Im not nieve. if you don't go with what ever madonna wants you to she will distory you. I believe everything I her brother said about her in his book. She only cares about her career.

    Anyone who knows anything about this sad situation, will know that this really is the truth of the matter. I don't think it really matters what anyone else thinks. Whether you love or hate Madonna, she is not to blame for Caresse's death. Caresse was depressed & took her own life for that reason. I don't believe for a second that any of the people commenting know people who know Madonna, if that were the case they would know that this article has nothing to do with either her of Liz Rosenberg & they would also know not to believe everything (good or bad) that they read. It's great to see that Perez has given us the truth & a shame that so many people are so filled with hate that they cannot bring theirselves to believe it. It would be nice if we now could all now leave this poor woman to rest & stop trying to place blame & drag up past events (virtually c**ping on her memory). - R.I.P. Caresse Henry x

    Why are those 'close to Madonna' speaking ill of the dead, when she's not here and thus unable to vet their 'version' of what they now say happened? This doesn't surprise me, though. It doesn't matter. She's gone, rip. The noble thing would have been to let it go.

  41. 41

    It was pretty well known that Caresse was a whack job. I hate speaking ill of the dead, but it's true. She stole money from Madonna. If someone did that, I would fire them too. Madonna is no saint, but she was very nice to me when I met her.

  42. 42

    Re: Marley Bob

    Madonna dumped Christopher because he became a drug addict. He even admitted it in his book. If you don't like M, fine. But saying she's not newsworthy and going off on long tantrums makes you sound rather hypocritical.

    Re: phillymonster – She dumped Sandra Bernhardt, too, and Sandra's been vocal and bitter about what went down, and she's a tough cookie.

    Re: gooby – well of course, spin control, or do you suggest Madonna just let people talk bad about such an aspect without responding? Wouldn't you respond if your reputation was at stake?

    Re: mediterranean
    Great! So where is Madonna's response? You know, a statement that actually came out of her and some rep's lips?

  46. 46

    Shame on her family, blaming Madonna when she had been gone for years. Why would Kaballah have anything to do with it, anyway? Madonna has plenty o people and friends surrounding her that aren't into that religion. And plus her family said she was Catholic, and had an issue with Kaballah telling Madonna what to do. The Catholic religion tells their parisioners to not use birth control, not get divorced, on and on.

  47. 47

    Re: kylielover02 – Really? Madonna is a mother of four, while her brother was a drug addict and lives off her laurels making money. To sell books you have to make it juicy. Inbetween his truth and Madonna's truth is the real truth in the middle. If you believe EVERY SINGLE THING HE SAYS, you're naive. Do I think Madonna is a saint? Hell, no. It talks balls, narcissim and tremendous drive to accomplish what she has. But do I think that is the only side to her? hell, no again. I'm sure she's loving and caring and a great mom. She's a lot of things. But her brother is pathetic. A drugged-out middle-aged queen living a shallow life. I dislike my older brother but would never sell him out for money.

    Re: TrannyTakesATumble – u r another crazy bitch, Britney, GaGa and all the rest strive to achieve Madonna's success and if that is failure than I guess they strive to fail as badly as Madonna. Just the facts. BTW love Brit n Gaga

  50. 50

    BTW Caresse was Madonnas assistant. There has NEVER been a case where a major star has promoted a unknown woman to manager, this was unheard of until Madonna did it for Caresse. Hopefully that gives you some perspective on their relationship. One thing is for sure, Careese had Madonna's full trust at one point and in return she lavished her with opportunity.

  51. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Blondie100 – I'm usually with ya, but I see no shame in Caresse's family having their opinion. They likely heard Caresse's version of what went down first hand. It is what it is, just like M's spin control. As you state, somewhere in the middle is the truth.

  52. 52

    I wouldn't believe anything that came out of Madonnas mouth even if it came notarized. On a lighter side, doesn't that girl look like Jennifer Anniston before the nose job.

  53. 53

    So, first off, I have been a Madonna fan for over 25 years but after all this time and the things I've learned, I know for certain that she is not a saint. if you think otherwise, you are being delusional. That goes for Madonna or any other human being. She is in fact quite a narcissist and after reading her brother's book (despite the fact that the wrote it for money as well as for his own therapy), it seems odd to be that yet again the Madonna camp is throwing out the "blame the addict" speech like they did with her brother when the book came out. All you have to remember is that during Madonna's 20+ minute acceptance speech at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, she listed all the managers, producers and EVERYONE from her career who helped her along the way. She did NOT even mention Caresse. She skipped over her & focused on Guy Oseary. Like it or not, that's cold and seems to support what the sister said. I'm actually surprised nobody has mentioned this yet, Careese managed her thru some of her best creative years (Evita, Ray of Light, Music, Drowned World, Reinvention Tour) and the period of her career when M. got her highest accolades (Golden Globe, top category Grammy Awards, MTV Video of the Year, etc.). Madonna has yet to have a period in her career again as creative as those years.
    So, that's my thoughts.

  54. 54

    Oh, and that Perez needs to remove his tongue from Madonna's asshole. For God's sake, does she pay him to write pieces in her defense? This is an accusation made by singer Aisha on her blog…judiciaryreport.com

  55. 55

    @ GlennDillon I agree that Madonna should have mentioned Caresse in her thank yous at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction. No matter how bad things may have been between them that ended their professional relationship, you don't forget someone whos helped and worked for your career for 13 years. Its a real shame all around, we need to give credit where credit is due. We will never know the whole story but again, its a sad ending to an incredibly generous lady.
