Taylor Swift And Longtime Publicist Split

Taylor Swift is splitting from Paula Erickson, her publicist of seven years, according to Billboard.

Erickson's Nashville-based Erickson Public Relations has handled Swift's career since the latter's self-titled debut album in 2006. Erickson reportedly informed the singer's management team that she is resigning this month.

Swift is planning to play things a bit closer to the vest in the future, according to a source, as Swift has her sights set on bringing all PR efforts in-house to the management company.

"Taylor will have her pick of top-shelf publicists, but the challenge is finding that person you know and trust. Bringing PR in-house assures that person is directly involved in advising on what needs to be done and what doesn't," one high-ranking PR executive was reported as saying.
