In 2011 Beyonce fired her father/manager Mathew Knowles after the Live Nation touring company alerted the pop star to her father skimming money off her concert tours.  On an unrelated note [or not] Beyonce just fired her Live Nation manager.  Beyonce has dismissed her general manager Faisal Duranni 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 organizing the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.  The couple, who got married in 2008 and have a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, wa nt to put family life first.  The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband together.
