In recent months, there’s been a lot of attention on Britney Spears and her father, Jamie, who as his daughter’s conservator has controlled pretty much every aspect of her life since she was admitted to hospital in 2008. This may be an extreme case of parents taking the reins when it comes to their kids, but there are lots of other celebs who at some point have been managed by their parents. Just look at Kris Jenner, the world’s most famous “momager.”

Check out this gallery to find out which stars have been managed by their parents.

 

LINDSAY LOHAN

Former child star Lindsay Lohan was managed by her mother Dina from a young age. According to Rolling Stone, Dina signed her daughter up with Ford Models at age three.

BRITNEY SPEARS

With all the press attention on Britney Spears and her father, it’s easy to forget that back in the day Britney was actually managed by her mother, Lynne Spears.

Apparently it was Lynne who first enrolled the young Britney at a performing arts school and pushed her career early on. Eventually Lynne turned her sights to Jamie Lynn, Britney’s younger sister, instead.

 

USHER

After Usher was signed with L.A. Reid as a teenager, his mother, Jonetta Patton, took over the management of his career. Their working relationship was turbulent to say the least.

USHER AND MUM

According to Rolling Stone, Usher fired his mom in 2007, rehired her again in 2008, and then fired her again in 2009. We wonder if they’re still close as mother and son…

 

KANYE WEST

According to Insider, Kanye West’s mother Donda West quit her career in academia to manage her son’s career. Prior to this, she had been working at Chicago State University.

Nowadays, however, the ‘Malibu’ singer is managed by Adam Leber, who also handles the likes of Lil Nas X. Previously she was managed by Larry Rudolph.

 

ASHANTI

Legend has it that Ashanti’s mother, Tina Douglas, heard her daughter singing to herself one day and she sounded so good that she thought it was the radio.

It was at that point that mother and daughter decided that Ashanti should go after a career in entertainment. Douglas is her daughter’s manager still today.

 

THE KARDASHIAN-JENNER CLAN

Arguably the most famous momager out there is Kris Jenner, who has helped boost the careers of all her children.

Although her kids have now branched out and pursued their own careers in different industries, it all began with the reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’

 

BEYONCE

Beyoncé’s father Matthew Knowles is credited with teaching the Destiny’s Child girls to sing. He then managed the group until they eventually parted ways.

Knowles also managed his daughter’s solo career for a while. In March 2011, Beyoncé released a statement saying the working relationship with her father was over.
