Jane's Addiction, Korn manager quits The Firm
Jane’s Addiction and Korn manager Jeff Kwatinetz has quit The Firm, the company he founded in 1997.

Kwatinetz’s departure yesterday (November 6) follows the departure of many employees at The Firm and he reportedly told colleagues that he was leaving because the company "was an embodiment of Rick Yorn, Dave Baram and myself”.

According to [url=Variety]Variety[/url], Yorn left on October 19 to start a new company and was joined by several high-level executives from The Firm, including merchandising executive and Snoop Dogg manager Constance Schwartz.

The report says that Kwatinetz will launch his own entertainment company, and will take some of The Firm’s staff with him. His new company will focus on music, TV and film management as well as production, and he will still remain manager to his music acts.

Kwatinetz repped Britney Spears for a short period last year, quitting after her disastrous performance at the MTV VMAs.
