In early 1986, Tiffany signed on with manager George Tobin, which would lead to problems later when it became known in that Tobin had "absolute control" over her career (since she was a minor at the time, Tiffany's mother signed for her, and later regretted having a divorce lawyer examine the papers instead of an entertainment lawyer).
