Nicki Minaj performs on stage at the Samsung Infuse 4G launch event at Milk Studios on May 12, 2011 in Los Angeles.

*Word has it that Nicki Minaj has given the deuces to her manager Sean “Diddy” Combs…this time for real.

The last time reports surfaced that Minaj had severed ties with Combs, it turned out to be false.

But XXL Magazine in a report today claims the rapper has parted ways with the mogul in order to sign with the company backing her label-mate Drake.

Minaj, who is signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label, joined fellow rapper Rick Ross on Diddy’s management roster last May.

But according to XXLMag.com, Minaj is now putting her career in the hands of Gee Roberson and Kyambo Joshua, who run production company Hip-Hop Since 1978.

The firm manages her mentor Lil Wayne, Drake, Kanye West and Young Jeezy.
