Paula Deen has lost her endorsement deals with ten companies, been dropped by the Food Network, and lost a book deal.  

Now she is the one doing the firing.

The celebrity chef has parted ways with her long time manager, Barry Weiner of the Artists Agency.  

Weiner and Deen first met back in 1999, and he helped build her career and empire.

Weiner  played a major role in day-to-day operations for Ms. Deen and her company, Paula Deen Enterprises, over the years.

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.
