Word on the curb is that she’s let go of yet another business manager so that she and hubby Hov can have complete control of her career.  According to Mail Online reports: Beyonce has reportedly parted ways from her manager so that she can run her own affairs with the help of husband Jay-Z. The 32-year-old singer is believed to have ditched her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani, the Daily Mirror reports.  Durrani, 32, is one of several managers that Beyonce has dismissed over the years so that she can run her career with Jay-Z, 44. In 2011, the Texan singer sacked her father, Matthew Knowles, who managed the star for 21 years since she was in Destiny’s Child in 1990.  She became the president of Parkwood Entertainment, the entertainment and management company that she set up in 2008.

#FactsOnly Jay Z’s Barneys Collection Earns Over $1 Milli (DETAILS)


But I thought racism was all over Barneys, excuse me if I am incorrect.

Jay-Z Performs At Carnegie Hall To Benefit The United Way Of New York City And The Shawn Carter Foundation - After Party

The Shawn Carter Foundation is winning!

Thanks to profits from the luxury clothing line Jay Z  launched at Barneys’ flagship Manhattan store just six weeks ago, the collaboration earning more than $1 million in profits.

A source close to the luxury department store said figures were being tallied on Friday, the last day of sales, but profits had exceeded the million-dollar mark.

If you recall Hov received tons of criticism for his deal with the store after their controversy of allegedly racially profiling their black shoppers. But he decided to proceed, pledging that 100% of the collection’s profits and 10% of all of Barneys’ sales on the day of the line’s debut would go to the foundation.

Looks like Jigga did good on this one! Yet another success to add to the Shawn Carter resume.

“I’m not a business man…” yall know the rest!
