Se hai seguito la testimonianza del manager di Hollywood Brad Lambert, allora sai che il rappresentante ora nella lista nera ha detto la sua verità dopo mesi di silenzio. Parlando esclusivamente con Nicki Swift in un’intervista in due parti (la prima e la seconda parte sono disponibili qui), Lambert ha portato messaggi, e-mail, estratti conto bancari, documenti legali e ricevute per aiutarsi a uscire da un buco indotto dai media. Dopo che un articolo espositivo è stato pubblicato dalla pubblicazione hollywoodiana TheWrap – con interviste all’influencer Matt Ramos, all’artista Bosslogic e altri – Lambert si è ritrovato a terra e ingiustamente secondo le sue stime.

While mistakes were made in his professional relationships, the manager himself confessing that he misunderstood the Talent Agency Act Law, he remains steadfast in his innocence. As Lambert says, he did not take advantage of influencers and artists, as TheWrap estimated, but rather helped clients reach their full potential, until things became untenable.

For instance, former client Bosslogic — an artist based in Australia — told TheWrap that Lambert intentionally killed a $100,000 deal with Warner Bros., the manager allegedly scrapping the payday because he was not part of overseeing the deal. Providing emails to Nicki Swift that paint a much different picture, Lambert's correspondence shows that the deal was terminated after the artist failed to meet crucial deadlines.

Even still, Lambert's emails show he tried to keep the deal afloat.

This is just one example of the "he said, he said" situation that Lambert has found himself in, and during our sit down, he made a point to also address former client Matt Ramos.

Lambert and Ramos' relationship began to disintegrate after a charged FaceTime call

While Matt Ramos is a young influencer in his 20s and Brad Lambert is a talent manager in his 30s, the two found common ground quite quickly. As many texts between the two show — provided to Nicki Swift by Lambert — neither the manager nor influencer held back their affection or praise for one another, and the two often talked about their lifelong bond.

So what happened between them that led Ramos to paint Lambert as simply a man "leeching" off an up-and-coming social media star? The compromised talent rep told us that he confronted Ramos over his evolving behavior, as ego and pretentious tendencies were allegedly getting in the way of work.

"[Ramos] painted me as a 'suit' who 'used him' and 'abused him' for his own personal gain and whatever, but when I say that kid was my little brother, I loved him," Lambert told us.

But after a successful deal with Noovie, things went downhill, according to Lambert. "We were on FaceTime talking and he was oozing arrogance and ego and insecurity — highly insecure individuals generally have the biggest egos to overcompensate," Lambert divulged. "It was not a fun conversation for him, I'm sure, because he got to the point where he didn't want to deliver on things that he said he was going to deliver on. [There was] a lot of arrogance and entitlement there."

What Ramos was not delivering on, according to Lambert

Mentre Brad Lambert ha spiegato come il suo rapporto con Matt Ramos ha iniziato a precipitare in un forte declino, ci siamo fermati e gli abbiamo chiesto quali accordi non stava offrendo l'influencer dei social media.

"La Disney ci ha dato l'opportunità di passare del tempo con le celebrità e il talento per questi progetti. Il film sarebbe arrivato e lui avrebbe detto, 'Non voglio postarlo. Preferirei parlare di qualcosa che è caldo, giusto ora come 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'", ha affermato Lambert. "Ero tipo, 'Devi postare questo. Questo non è... 'Oh, non ne ho voglia.' Hai preso un impegno.'" Lambert ha inoltre chiarito che non c'era alcun contratto tra lui e Ramos, ma che ha semplicemente contribuito a espandere la carriera del giovane creatore perché si è preso cura di lui come un "fratello minore".

Del suo futuro ora e dell'influenza di Ramos, Lambert ha riflettuto sui suoi 15 anni di carriera, dicendoci: "Potresti portarmi via i miei social media, potrebbero scomparire domani, ma avrò ancora quell'esperienza. Togli i suoi 3 milioni seguaci, ha un diploma di scuola superiore: una grande differenza".
