Paula Deen's public relations team gave this statement to News 3:

"Paula Deen has separated from her manager. She and her family thank him for the tireless effort and dedication over the many years. Paula wishes him well in all future endeavors."

Artists Agency also represents Bobby and Jamie Deen. No word on if they are still with the agency.

News 3 attempted to contact Weiner for comment but have not heard back.
