Three years after cutting managerial ties with father Mathew Knowles, self-managed vocalist Beyonce has reportedly bid adieu to her general manager Faisal Durrani, as to assign more control to herself and husband Jay Z.

Full story below…

While her departure from ‘Music World’ saw her stand as the head of her own management team, Durrani was hired to serve as Carter’s general manager, aiding her in running entertainment/management company ‘Parkwood Entertainment.’

Now, despite the success the pair enjoyed with her latest studio album ‘Beyonce’ and the record-breaking ‘Mrs.Carter Show’ world tour, the Live Nation executive has been cut from her camp and- if reports published this morning are to be taken as gospel- been replaced with Jay Z.

The Daily Mail explains:

“…now Beyonce has also allegedly dismissed general manager Faisal so that she can gain even more independence with her husband, who plays an unofficial managerial role.

Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce’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 added that the couple, who got married in 2008 and have a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, want to put family life first.

“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.”

    Beyonce doesn’t need anyone, except herself. She’s clearly a mastermind.

  2. gwwyatt12@yahoo.com February 1, 2014

    Ok Great! Now maybe she’ll learn how to sing and have a better voice.

  3. Jewel February 1, 2014

    She’s a grown woman, she can do whatever she wants.

  4. Lou February 1, 2014

    People thought she was lost without Mathew, all along she knew what she was doing. And he made one of the best decisions of her career releasing her album like that, she earned a lot of respect and made one of, if not her best body of work to date. She can clearly think for herself. Jay Z aiding her is even better, he does a great job with Rihanna.

  5. Lou February 1, 2014

    THE NEW RIHANNA CHRIS BROWN SONG IS VERY S*** AND SLICK. It sounds like they are singing to each other
    ” /….why you in my bed…..”
    Rih sings,” I keep looking for love”
    Sounds like they are airing in each other out on the track. Good! Sometimes you need to get it all out in the open.

  13. Unbiased February 1, 2014

    No Jay Z does not have control over her, that’s her husband, why wouldn’t he be there to give business advice? I say congrats to her. She is making the music she wants now, and doing things her way.

  14. Marley February 1, 2014

    Incorrect. She has sold 2.5 million. Stop deflating to make yourself feel better.

    Anyway good luck to them. The Carter are just THAT family in showbiz.

  15. Marley February 1, 2014

    Beyoncé can sit back, put her feet up and laugh to be honest. She went on an arena Tour off her name alone and still outgrossed her peers, she dropped an album out of blue and is currently outselling them with ease. And garnering critical acclaim. While others need smash hit singles to push their sorry ass albums. No wonder she wants a challenge, she must be like, this s*** is too easy.

  16. PARKWOOD February 1, 2014

    HA POWER WHEN WILL RIHANNA OR CIARA

  17. BEYHIVE_MINAJ February 1, 2014

    @ Marley

    Your figures are deflated as f*** too.

  22. Mya February 1, 2014

    This story is a bunch of Bull Crap. Nothing but lies. Jay Z has nothing to do with Beyoncé career. Nothing.

  23. miley rayy February 1, 2014

    When will RihAPE?

  24. beyonce struggling to take rih out the game February 1, 2014

    beyonce is 40 years old and looks 45. Rih is only 25, so why are you comparing the 2. When Bey was 25, she was not covering vogue or selling out stadiums, Watch when rih is her old ass age.

    Y’all think that BEY IS YOUNG AND FRESH SHE IS AN OLD FART

  25. mya February 1, 2014

    Beyonce is her OWN manager. I don’t know why it’s hard for ppl to understand that. Just other reason to say a man controls her career, which none do. Jay Z has nothing to do with her career. I mean just read the “report” it sounds like a bunch of lies, the “insider” lol. Really, GJ I thought you guys report official news. Not some made up BS lies.

  26. BEYHIVE_MINAJ February 1, 2014

    @Sybil At 25,Rih hasn’t performed and been honored by legends,dignitaries or sold over 500k first week and had a single that topped the charts for over 14 weeks. And you know damn well Beyonce ain’t fat and looks younger than her age. We all know you stay looking at her photos all day crying with a bag of Pringles wishing you could look that good.

  27. mya February 1, 2014

    Call me when Rihanna can sell 600k in 3 days lmao! Or better yet sell 1 million in 4 days. Beyonce at 25 were staring in blockbuster films, on the red carpets in hollywood, performing at the Oscars making history. Beyonce was performing in stadiums in Asian , by the age 25 she already had 10 grammys, the top paid black actress in the world. Lead singer of the biggest girl-group. etc

  28. NERY February 1, 2014

    @Marley
    Beyoncé sold out 40 shows out 59 shows. She charged more per ticket than the other girls. She still hasn’t performed at a stadium. If she can’t sell out Arenas, she obviously can’t sell out stadiums.
    She’s the only artist that performed at the Grammy’s and didn’t sell more albums than her previous week.. She actually took a lost. Her single did much better, but the album sold less. #4 to #6 next week. Even Lorde, who people joked about her performance moved to #3 for her 6 month old album.
    That tells me a lot since a single is released to sell your album but her single increase did nothing for album sales.

    Has “Drunk in Love” reached gold or platinum status yet?. We never seem to get Beyoncé singles sales numbers.

  29. NERY February 1, 2014

    We know it’s not going to reach #1 on billboard charts anytime soon sine Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” is selling 30k-40k per day and Beyoncé is at 18k per day..

  30. Maya February 1, 2014

    These idiots always always talking about somebody trying to take rihanna out the game. I think at this moment Beyonce isn’t even thinking about rihanna. It took rihanna 4 tries to have a successful tour which was LOUD. She’s releasing album after albums and doing features after features, why? Both were touring a the same time and rihanna was bragging about the amount of tickets she sold. She sold 1.6 mil compare to Beyonce’s 1.5 mil, but at the end of the day Beyonce still outgrossed her by almost 40 million. Pink and Justin beiber also outgrossed rihanna, among others, but rihanna was the only one bragging until the final figures came. Anyway ono the subject at hand. Another promotion company was offering Beyonce 20% on top of what Live Nation was offering at 40%, so I don’t blame her for leaving. Get that money girl.

  31. Maya February 1, 2014

    Another thing, I find it strange that rihanna has been in the industry about 9 years now, released 7 albums, went on 5 tours, but when you compare her networth to the rest of her music peers she comes up short. Beiber and Miley are worth over 150 mil, Gaga’s worth over 200 mil. rihanna and Katy perry’s neworh is around the 90 mil mark, but Katy’s only been on one tour and releases albums every 3 years. I guess it’s from all those payola that her record label has been doing. The money has to come from somewhere, and I guess that her pockets. Instead of being on social media all day trying to be a cyber thug, maybe she should work on her craft.

  32. True That February 1, 2014

    Rihanna has surpassed Beyonce, Beyonce is taking notes out of Rihanna’s book not the other way around. Rihanna has much more depth as a person as she went further in school and was socialized with her peers and family, not installed above them like Beyonce. Beyonce (and her parents) have serious issues and have a need to be ‘above’ others, whereas Rihanna can just “be” and people feel that moreso than the egomaniac Beyonce

    This has nothing to do with numbers, which can be manipulated, but relatability. Very few relate to Beyonce, the Kang, The End all Be All, The Alpha and Omega, GTFOH with that BS non talking, can’t live a day without weave, p poppin, wind machine, thieving, lying “i’m better than you”…what did that newspaper call her, Yeah. Whatever Beyonce and Co.

  33. Brazilian Yoncé February 1, 2014

    Proud of her hey!!!

  34. When will your fave February 1, 2014

    What was that movie that Rihanna starred in again, yeah Battleship. It flopped like a pack of cards. Movie makers never bothered with her anymore lol. Critics said her acting was sooo poor? You can fake not being able to sing with autotune and s** but you cannot fake poor acting, lol. Meanwhile Beyonce turned down a movie Clint Eastwood, a legendary movie director, cos she wanted to focus on family. Her movies have grossed over $750mill. Worldwide. It took Rih/Shak, faking lesbianism before CRTFU sales picked up. (Iam not attacking gays in any way, shape or form).Call Bey a w****, but at least she was true to her sexuality, and did not have to fake homosexuality to manipulate sales. And yet these idiots will be quick to call Beyonce the fake.

  35. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* February 1, 2014

    The self-proclaimed “modern-feminist”, beyonce, always have Career in someone’s Hands, always a man.

    what are you all talking about when it is “independence”, her husband CLEARLY put thoughts in her head all the time, even her image and brand got changed, she can’t do it by herself, See destiny’s Child, mathew, jay-z, etc.. she’s not independent. 😕

    anyway,good Luck to her. She works hard for the money, you better treat her right. 😀

  36. h2o February 1, 2014

    Beyonce is the biggest, most global touring force among her supposed “peers”.

    Are we not through with that yet ?

  37. Marley February 1, 2014

    @Nery and call me when Rihanna can do what Beyonce did off her name. There is no comparison, the FACT that Beyonce can sell a Tour and ppl will pay to see her, and she cab make more money off expensive tickets (Madonna charges $300 per ticket, acclaimed performers dont sell cheap tickets) it is because she is an amazing performer is enough. Rihann had push from a whole era, she could never Tour like Beyonce did off her name because she is not an acclaimed perferormer. Bey slayed her. Oh and actually Beyonce did do stadiums.

  38. To the left February 1, 2014

    I do not believe this story. Most of these things are just made up. Beyonce manages herself. I do not think Jay influences her career in any tangible way. She even said it during her Q&A sessions that she controls ehr company, everything with a team of other women she referred to as underdogs. This story was just made up to discredit her feminism stance. Watch other stories start spinning off of this BS attacking her proclamation as a feminist.

  39. Marley February 1, 2014

    Oh and funny because her sales this week is what Rihanna usually does in her second week. Lol.

  40. Kim February 1, 2014

    Most sensible/best comment I’ve seen on here in a while. Just wanted to add people keeps saying she only does arenas and its not true all of her Latin America tour dates were stadiums and she also does stadiums in Asia which she hasn’t toured yet.

  41. Marley February 1, 2014

    Beyonce s doing what rock bands with like 30 years of experience do. Tour off nothing. She sold out more dates than Bruce Springsteen, Bruce is still the Touring God. At the end of the day, Touring power is about how much you GROSS in the end. You basically shaded Rihanna yourself, because she sold her tickets cheap as chips to sell out. Lets see if se could randomly Tour like Beyonce did and sell as much as she did.

  42. Marley February 1, 2014

    She

  43. the best dancer February 1, 2014

    we all knew Jay would end up maanging Beyonce.. he is a mastermind

  44. Kim February 1, 2014

    @ Marley

    Again really great points. People want to talk about her not selling out all her dates when she had a 97.6% occupancy rate and was grossing almost $200,000 more per show than Rihanna(since they’re comparing). That 2.4% she didn’t sell out didn’t hurt her at all.She hadn’t released new music in THREE YEARS and was still able to do this. Only people considered legends are able to do this WITHOUT new music and even Madonna released albums before her last two tours. I was just watching a Kanye interview where he said he did the Yeezus album just so he could tour. Oh and Beyonce could have lowered her ticket prices and sold out more dates because I know quite a few people who didn’t go to this tour because they said the price for decent/good seats they got last time were to high this time around and she didn’t even have any new songs to perform.I bet they’re going if she comes back around to the states with the new album. I know I’m going for sure this time.

  45. LOL February 1, 2014
