Amy Schumer has split with the manager and PR rep who helped propel Amy to stardom. And there’s gossip circulating that the split may been because Schumer’s manager used to date Schumer’s now-husband.
According to Page Six, Schumer’s (now former) Manager and PR Rep Carrie Byalick used to date him back in 2007. When Fisher’s little sister Molly was looking for work, she reached out to Byalick for help finding a job, and Byalick introduced her to Amy. Molly became Amy’s assistant, and she introduced Amy and Chris. A few months later they were married.
Now Schumer has parted ways with her Manager, and the speculation seems to be that it’s over some kind of jealousy or discomfort. Byalick firmly denied the split had anything to do with the dating connection, and insists that she and Schumer are still good friends, but Page Six noted that Carrie was not at the couple’s recent wedding.
Of course, it would be far more interesting and gossipy if the break up is unrelated to the marriage- Byalick reportedly was responsible for getting Schumer on Vogue and GQ, and was pretty instrumental in helping Schumer’s career skyrocket. And the split occurred during a major press campaign- Schumer’s movie “I Feel Pretty” is scheduled to open on April 20th. So if it wasn’t dating discomfort, what caused Schumer to drop her management right before the release of a major movie?
No comment from Schumer on the reason for the split…yet.
