Carter met Gaga in 2007 and worked with her up until the release of the most recent album, Artpop. The duo split just days before the album was released due to "creative differences" but Carter is now turning his attention to Mayer.
Carter is the founder, chairman and CEO of Coalition Media Group, the talent management and full-service film and television production company. Carter had his house foreclosed and his car repossessed shortly before picking up Lady Gaga after Def Jam Records dropped her.
