Mariah Carey is NOT messing around with the next phase of her career, we guess!
The diva is reportedly deep in negotiations with Randy Jackson, whom she's known since was signed to A&R from 1988-2001, to manage her career!
The two have worked together on many recordings in the past, and although the deal isn't completely in place yet, according to a source, the American Idol judge is "very much in the mix," and was present at the nine-hour music video shoot for the diva's new collaboration with Justin Bieber on a remix of her track, All I Want For Christmas is you!
And only days later, he was spotted at Mariah's label office, taking meetings!
These two obviously have a very healthy working relationship, and the man is obviously more than capable of working with talent, so we think that this will be a very beneficial arrangement for both parties!
We're excited to hear what kind of tunage you make together!
