Report: Usher May Bring Back Mom

Is USHER ready to admit mother knows best? THE N.Y. DAILY NEWS writes that the singer is said to be quietly talking with mom JONETTA PATTON about becoming his manager again.
Last year, just days before Mother's Day, USHER stunned friends by telling his mother that her services were no longer needed. Shortly afterward, it was revealed that he was replacing her with BENNY MEDINA, the man who has steered the careers of MARIAH CAREY and JENNIFER LOPEZ among others.
But now that USHER's new album has been slow off the mark, he's blaming MEDINA, say sources.
"People have been telling USHER to listen to his mother," said a source. "Nobody knows how to sell him better than she does. USHER can be stubborn. But he may be ready."
