Beyoncé is now under new management! The superstar has decided to part ways with her ex manager now Lee Anne Callahan-Longo after 10 years. Right before she performs at the Superbowl this Sunday, she’s having her new manager Steve Pamon take over.
Steve Pamon previously worked with Beyoncé as an instrumental figure in 2014 during her “On the Run” tour, which also featured Jay Z. A source told Page Six:
“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.”
Beyonce’s rep, Yvette Noel-Schure, addressed the report with a statement:
“Last year, Parkwood Entertainment created new departments and recruited new executives from the tech, business, and entertainment sectors who joined the team to help grow Parkwood and its interests. Some senior staffers were given the opportunity to reposition and stay on. Some members…awakened [to] new interests and decided to follow personal routes. 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.”
