Handprint closing shop

Former clients included Jennifer Lopez, Tyra Banks

Management company Handprint Entertainment is shutting its doors at year's end, sources said.

The firm, led by partners Benny Medina and Jeff Pollack, has boasted such high-profile clients over the years as Jennifer Lopez, Tyra Banks, Mariah Carey, Kyra Sedgwick, Mekhi Phifer, Usher, Chris Rock, Will Smith, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Nicole Richie.

However, most of those clients have parted ways with the company, with Banks and Usher exiting within the past year. Reports surfaced last month that Carey was the latest to exit the company, but statements from the singer and manager reportedly indicated that, while Handprint would not be managing Carey, the parties would still be working on projects together.

Calls to Handprint for comment were not returned.
