The Queen of 3rd Ward takes no prisoners as she cleaned house recently. Apparently Beyonce wants to be bigger than life with more lucrative deals and touring. Keep in mind that Bey banked in $2 million per show on her Mrs. Carter World Tour and between her and husband Jay Z, they are worth about a billion dollars. Not only that but Beyonce is literally the biggest female Star out today. Well, all of that is clearly not enough to satisfy Blue Ivy’s mom.
According to the site, Page Six, the Bey has parted ways with Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, who has been her general manager for around five years.
The Diva is now working with Steve Pamon, former head of sports and entertainment marketing at JPMorgan Chase — who also scored the financial institutions sponsorship of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On the Run tour in 2014!
A source said to take her career to a higher level, 34-year-old fired her whole team — including her cousin — explaining:
“Beyoncé basically cleaned house, got rid of her whole team, which included her cousin, and hired a new team. She wants to surround herself with business people who could take her career to an even higher level. She has one album left to deliver before her deal is up with Columbia, plus she wants to make smarter decisions where it comes to touring, sponsorships and acting roles.”
Mrs. Carter brought Pamon to her company Parkwood Entertainment last year, as well as former Universal Republic and Island Def Jam executive Peter Thea.
As for Bey’s former manager, it seems like the breakup was not bitter. Her rep Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement:
“Lee Anne Callahan-Longo has worked with Beyoncé for the last 10 years. Their friendship supersedes business, and while she is no longer an employee of Parkwood, she will remain an imperative part of Beyoncé’s life.”
That’s the entertainment industry for you! Take people to extremely high levels, then get left behind.
