Bon Jovi fired their longtime manager Jack Rovner after it was reported that he messed up several times during their current promotional tour.
The first snafu occurred when $1,000 VIP tickets were sold that included a meet-and-greet with the band, however fans complained that after shelling out the dough, they were never granted access to meet the band.
Then, Rovner booked an "artist in residence" gig on NBC, which prevented them from promoting their new album The Circle on other networks.
And the real topper was when he was responsible for the Showtime documentary When We Were Beautiful, in which "Jon makes the rest of the band admit they are paid employees and owe everything to him."
When Rovner was reportedly told he was "lucky to have a job" after sending his lawyer Michael Guido to ask Jon for a raise, Bon Jovi decided to take a stand and tell their side of the story:
"Though I personally live for and love Page Six, I'm sorry to say that the tidbit you have received regarding the split between Vector Management and Bon Jovi is inaccurate. The boring truth is we decided to go in different directions and thanked both Jack and his team for a great job. He is and will remain a close friend and someone who I will be very grateful to for his dedication."
We think that there was probably a little bit more to the story than that, but at least they're good at keeping things professional!
