Chelsea Handler is set to leave E! stating that the network has "no ideas".

The 39-year-old comedian and TV host has decided she will not renew her contract with the E! network when it runs out later this year.

Her manager, Irving Azoff, told The Hollywood Reporter: "Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires. She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas."

Responding to the claims E! told The Hollywood Reporter: "Chelsea has nine months left on her contract and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time." 

Handler has been outspoken about her dissatisfaction with the network. Speaking to Howard Stern on his radio show lately she said:"They don't know what they're doing" she said, adding, "They have no ideas. It's a failure."

Handler is currently working to the end of her $25 million two-year contract with E!
