An insider tells Star magazine that Brandy’s move to work with Timbaland on her new album spurred the major moves in her personal life, including dropping hubby Robert Smith and her decision to look for new management outside the family. “Brandy has done so much growing up in the last year – and that means moving on past the family where her career is concerned,” an insider said. “While Brandy always felt safe in the family cocoon, she feels it has also held her back in some ways. She felt smothered.” While she and Robert are still close, an insider added that “she decided she and Robert would both be better off if they had separate lives. For the first time in her life, Brandy feels like she’s thinking and doing for herself. She’s finally made her declaration of independence.”
