Its the end of an era for Little Mix who have parted ways with Simon Cowells record label Syco.

The girl group signed to Simons Sony Music imprint in 2011 after winning The X Factor but its reported they are no longer working together following an alleged row with their management company Modest.

Confirming the separation, a rep for Simon told The Sun: Syco Music will no longer work with Modest Management and therefore any artists signed to that management company.

We do, of course, wish all artists affected by this decision every future success. Consequently, LM5, the forthcoming Little Mix album A&Rd and released on Syco Music, is to be serviced by RCA at the request of Syco and Simon Cowell.

Little Mix, consisting of Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, are reported to have sent an email to Simons label about getting an extra writing credit on their latest single Woman Like Me, allegedly prompting tensions to rise.

The band gave their first live performance of Woman Like Me, which features Nicki Minaj, on The X Factor earlier this month and their next album, LM5, is set for release on 16 November.

Little Mix are still at the peak of their career and recently shut down speculation they could split similar to One Direction, who were also signed to Syco.

Addressing the possibility of solo careers, Leigh-Anne told Attitude magazine: Were not in that place yet. Weirdly, I feel were at the beginning. We still feel that the world doesnt know how good we are yet.
