Somehow, despite what I am about to write, the two subjects of the blind item have kissed and made up.
It never looked like that would happen way back in the day though.
She is A+ list.
There was a time though where that A+ list went down to B+ and it was 50/50 whether she would ever have a career again.
Back in the day when she was mentored by this man, he was hurt when she walked away from them so he made it a life mission to crush her to the point where she would never be able to work again. No one would touch her.
For any project.
She would be reduced to playing cruise ships because he would call every casino and make sure she could not perform in any of them or suffer his wrath.
How he could do that?
One example of the lengths he went to is when he contacted this now daytime talk show host who had one of the top radio programs in the country at the time.
He offered the radio host $50K and a package of information he wanted her to read on the air and to spread around to her friends and other people in the industry.
Despite the fact that the host and the A+ list singer did not and still do not get along that great, the host declined.
It didn’t take long for the guy to find someone else to do it though.
This battle of destruction would have continued to the point of no return for the singer, but something intervened on her behalf.
The guy met someone who he is still with and she convinced him it was not worth his time or effort.
If not for that chance meeting, we would probably be asking whatever happened to the A+ lister rather than keeping her as a permanent A+ lister.
Mentor: Tommy Mottola
