Samantha Armytage has claimed she was ‘dumped’ by her agent Nick Fordham, just one day after the tragic death of her mother Libby.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Nick’s talent management group The Fordham Company ended their working relationship with the 44-year-old the day after her mother died on November 3rd.
The Sunrise host told the publication: ‘Out of the blue Nick dumped me from his management company the day after my mother died.’

‘As you can imagine, this has been a harrowing time for me. This hasn’t made it any easier.’
However, Fordham told Daily Mail Australia he was unaware Samantha’s mother had passed away when he contacted her on November 5th.
‘We have ended our business relationship but Sam has been a friend for many years and I have an incredible amount of respect for her, not only as a journalist but also as a person,’ he said.
Sam signed with The Fordham Company in April. Nick represents a host of Australian media stars, including Samantha’s former breakfast TV rival, Lisa Wilkinson.
