Formerly managed by Troy Carter, who also reps Lady Gaga, it seems she's mixing a bit of business with pleasure.

Sources close to the situation tell us the 21-year-old Harlem-born rapper has split with Lady Gaga 's powerful manager, Troy Carter , after less than two months in his stable, and is now repped by Dave Holmes , who's doing double duty as Banks' boyfriend. The insiders say the rising hip-hop star has been in a relationship with Holmes, who's in his 40s, for months. Indeed, one of those sources says Holmes introduced Banks to Carter, who has worked with rappers Nellie and Eve in the past.(NY Daily News)

SOHH Watcha Think: Is getting personal with your business partners bad for business, or will she still be able to make a splash in the music business?

In April, Banks excitedly tweeted the news that Carter would manage her, noting that she now would "have a whole new set of resources to take advantage of." Their business relationship quickly soured, however. According to one source, Carter and Banks weren't a "good fit, and things weren't working out." That source and another insider say it was Carter who "walked away" from Banks.(NY Daily News)
