The "#Beautiful" singer is now being managed by Red Light Management, who also rep Alicia Keys, Faith Hill, Miley Cyrus and more.

However, a second source insisted to E! News that "things are fine between them and they'll continue to work together but not [with Jackson] as a manager." The source said they were in the studio working together just last week.

Carey's rep has not yet responded to a request for comment. Jackson and Carey's longtime friendship and professional relationship first began working together in the early 1990s, when he worked at Columbia Records in A&R.

Can things get any more awkward on the Idol judges panel?
