LeBron James’ Marketing Agency Ends Relationship With Johnny Manziel
In yet another signal that the city of Cleveland is ready to turn its back on Johnny Manziel like he’s a healthy salad, LeBron James’ marketing agency, known as LRMR, is no longer in business with the Heisman-winning quarterback, according to Cleveland.com.
”We’ve decided to end our formal business relationship with Johnny, said Maverick Carter, who is a business partner with James. “I will continue to support and advice [Manziel] as a friend. However, because Johnny needs to focus on personal growth, the next phase of his career and because LRMR continues to expand beyond marketing, we made the mutual decision that it was best to terminate our business relationship.”
This comes after another controversial season for the sophomore signal-caller, and on the heels of this past weekend, when he allegedly visited Las Vegas wearing a blonde wig and fake mustache with a fake name.
Manziel reportedly got deals with McDonald’s, MusclePharm, Nissan and Snickers because of the LRMR agency.
The report also goes on to say that the separation of the two was likely going to happen soon anyway, because the agency was evolving toward managing more of James’ business deals. But Manziel’s recent shenanigans in Vegas likely bumped the timeline up a bit.
” I don't know all the details on it, I really kind of even haven't been all up on it, but I've heard a little bit of it and it's just a distraction for not only himself but for everyone that's around him, including family, people that represent him, the people around him. He'll figure it out at some point, we all hope." – LeBron James
Manziel signed with LRMR in 2014 after leaving Texas A&M and getting drafted by the Browns.
