Miami musician Pitbull (born Armando Pérez) reportedly separated from his long-time manager, Charles Chavez.

According to Billboard, Chavez and Pitbull have worked together since 2007. Sources reveal that the split was amicable and Pitbull has not announced any future management plans. He's currently on tour in China, Billboard reported.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in January, Pitbull revealed his New Year's resolution, which was that 2015 would be his year to "make history."

"Yeah, I put out a goal every year: '09 was freedom, '10 was invasion, '11 build empire, '12 build wealth, '13 put the puzzle together, '14 buckle up and '15 is make history," he said.

As for his music and personal style, the Miami native dished on his song "Sexy Beaches" and why he wears suits instead of t-shirts.

"Oh, I'm talking about sexy beaches." He told Rolling Stone. "Whether it's Key Largo or the Bahamas, there's nothing but sexy beaches. And you don't necessarily have to own a beach to own a beach. You can go to these spots if no one's there and have an amazing time with your crowd. It's like I say in the song: 'I don't bring sand to the beach/I bring the beach to the sand!'"

As for his stylish suits in place of t-shirts and sweatpants,

"Nah. We outgrew that phase a long time ago. You know, I don't take myself that seriously, but women are the most powerful species that there is on this planet, and they're always very detailed on what you wear and how clean you keep it. So that's why I love to be sharp all the time. "

In regards to making history in 2015, Billboard reported that Pitbull recently completed a tour that frequently sold out with Enrique Iglesias. The two North American legs of the tour totaled $39 million in Billboard BoxScore, stemming from 36 performances.

As for his now-former-manager Chavez, he remains the CEO of Latium Entertainment.
