Looks like Usher misses his mama. According to reports, the R&B sensation is contemplating rehiring his mom Jonetta Patton as his manager.

Usher fired/retired his momager last year and replaced her with famed superstar-maker Benny Medina, but sources claim the singer isn't happy with Medina's services. The singer is reportedly not pleased with the sales of his latest release 'Here I Stand,' which sold 433,000 in its first week. While 433,000 is nothing to sneeze at, 2004's 'Confessions' was a huge success with 1.1 million copies sold its first week in stores.

"People have been telling Usher to listen to his mother," a source told the New York Daily News. "Nobody knows how to sell him better than she does. Usher can be stubborn. But he may be ready."
