One of several fired over the years...
The Daily Mail reports that Beyonce has dismised her general manager (Live Nation executive Faisal Durrani) so she can manager her own career with Jay Z. Durrani is one of several managers she has fired oer the years. In 2011, she fired her father Matthew Knowles after he managed her for 21 years since she was in Destiny's Child in 1990.
She became president of Parkwood Entertainment, an entertainment and management company she set up in 2008. Jay Z has been unofficially managing Beyonce for years.
A source said: "Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce's career for years, and was instrumental in organizing the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn't officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent."
The two were married in 2008 and have a two-year-old daughter named Blue Ivy. They want to put their family life before their business lives.
The source 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."
When she split business ties with her father, she said: "It took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realise, 'Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn't want to do something, I can't make her do it.'"
A representative for Beyonce said: "Beyonce has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment. Faisal Durrani worked for her as President for a very short time."
