They say never mix business with pleasure, but looks like Aussie super star Ricki-Lee would is the exception to the rule.

Ricki is actually married to her current manager, Richard Harrison, and has been since 2015.

Chatting with Kyle and Jackie O this morning about what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone that she also has to work on her career with, Ricki revealed the pros and cons about it.

The biggest pro? Ricki joked that the best part is that she doesn’t have to pay him a percentage of her earnings like your average manager. Jackie certainly liked the idea of this one!

And the con? He’s always the first to be brutally honest with his feedback, which can certainly be a tough pill to swallow when it comes from someone you love.

In a way though, Ricki told us that it’s definitely better to have someone in your team that will always be honest with you rather than someone that just tells you what you want to hear.
