According to reports, Beyoncé is believed to have sacked her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani.
The Daily Mirror reports the singer has decided to become her own boss with the help of husband and rapper Jay Z although he doesn’t hold an official professional position as part of her career.
Durrani is one of numerous managers that Beyoncé has dismissed over the years, including her father Mathew Knowles, whom she sacked in 2011 after he managed the star for 21 years.
Beyoncé became the president of Parkwood Entertainment; an entertainment and management company that she had set up in 2008.
An insider told the Daily Mirror: “Jay has been heavily involved in Beyoncé’s career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.”
The insider continued that the couple, who wed in 2008 and have a two – year – old daughter Blue Ivy, want to start putting family life first.
The insider added: “Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there’s talk of them adding to the brood.
“The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband – together.”
A representative for the Drunk In Love hitmaker insisted Jay Z isn’t “involved in her management”, stating that she has been in control herself for four years.
They explained, saying: ”Beyoncé has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment.
”Faisal Durrani worked for her as general manager for a very short time. Jay Z is not involved in her management.”
