THE HOUSE OF USHER

Music superstar Usher has rehired his mother, Jonetta Patton, as his manager after much ballyhooed split.

Five- time Grammy winner Usher Raymond IV confirmed he ended his association with celeb manager Benny Medina who also reps Mariah Carey.

Mamma had steered Usher's career since he was a mere teen until he canned her.  He'd rather she just focused on her being his mom rather than manager-mum.

While Tales of Friction were reported, Usher said their relationship was greatly improved as mother and son.

"We have a different view and mind-set,"' Usher said in an interview.

"I'm doing it and I'm handling it and very happy, very happy with it."
