Obviously, trying to make Chris Brown‘s image a positive one around the clock is a tough task.

This morning, publicist Tammy Brook revealed that the job is no longer hers. Brook, whose firm also handles stars like Mike Tyson and Kelly Osborne, has spent the last year gearing up Brown’s new album F.A.M.E.—released Tuesday and expected to top the charts with upwards of 250,000 in sales—and as of this week, has parted was with the star. One might assume Brown’s recent antics at GMA scared off the PR wiz, but in a statement released to TMZ, Brook stresses that her time is simply up contractually and that her goals have been accomplished. She did not quit. Nor was she fired.

“I am an entertainment/music publicist and was hired as a publicist as they often are to work specifically on his music publicity for the term up to the release of Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E. album, which was released on Tuesday March 22 and is entering the Billboard and iTunes charts at No. 1 this week,” she said. “I love and support Chris and it has been an honor to be a part of this album and I look forward to the possibility of working with him again in the future.”
