Lady Gaga's former manager Troy Carter has been hired by John Mayer.

As reported on Rolling Stone, Mayer and Carter knew each other through mutual friends and teamed up as the guitarist parted ways with his longtime manager Michael McDonald in December. Neither Mayer or McDonald have given a reason for their split after more than 10 years of working together. Carter and Gaga, meanwhile, went their separate ways just days before the singer's most-recent album 'ARTPOP' was released last year.

Carter has previously worked with the likes of Eve and Nelly, with Mayer being the first rock artist signed to his Atom Factory company, who also represent John Legend among others. Carter is reported to have said he felt "liberated" after splitting with Gaga, with the move put down to "creative differences". Neither have made any more statements on the decision since, although Gaga did post an open letter in which she criticised former aides without naming them and said she was mismanaged over 'ARTPOP'.

She wrote: "Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result." She went on to say she had just a week to plan her latest video. "It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you."

Carter and Gaga first teamed up in 2007, the year before she released debut album 'The Fame'. John Mayer, meanwhile, released his sixth album 'Paradise Valley' in August last year. It charted at Number 2 in the US, his first since 2006's 'Continuum' not to reach Number 1.
