Beyonce Announces Mathew Knowles Is No Longer Her Manager

29 Mar

Beyonce’s publicist finally revealed that Mathew Knowles is no longer representing Bey as he manager. In a statement to the Associated Press, Beyonce says that she is grateful for the role that he has had in her career and that she still has love for her father. “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”

I’m not shocked.

Former Destiny’s Child members Kelly and Michelle also broke away from Mathew Knowles. As the media focused on Mathew’s extramarital affairs and lovechild born a year ago, Beyonce and her father were seen in the public less and less together. In June and September of last year, rumors circulated that Beyonce and her father were feuding but those claims were shot down by a rep for Beyonce both times.

The question now is who will be taking over as Beyonce’s manager?

Wouldn’t be surprised if her husband steps in and she’s represented by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation!

Chris Brown Splits From Publicist

28 Mar

Last week was one of ups and downs for Chris Brown. And things just got a little more interesting since he and his previous publicist, Tammy Brook (pictured), have parted ways. Initially, there were reports that Brook quit after Brown’s outburst on GMA, but Necole Bitchie reported that Brook was actually fired.

  “It was something that was in the works for a while, his team wasn’t happy with her and their contract was up“.

I thought Brook did a good job considering she helped bring Chris back to life after the Rihanna incident had him blacklisted and nearly ended his career. Tammy tells TMZ:

“I am an entertainment/music publicist and was hired as a publicist, as they often are, to work specifically on his music publicity for the term up to the release of Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E. album, which was released on Tuesday March 22 and is entering the Billboard and iTunes charts at number 1 this week.

I love and support Chris and it has been an honor to be a part of this album and I look forward to the possibility of working with him again in the future.”

With clients that included Terrell Owens and Mike Tyson, Tammy knows a thing or two about managing a crisis! A new publicist has not been announced yet.

Charlie Sheen Fired From “Two And A Half Men”

8 Mar

Well it looks like Charlie Sheen is no longer #winning…

Warner Bros., the studio behind “Two & A Half Men,” fired Sheen and issued the following statement:

 “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ effective immediately.” (Source)

Speaking on his firing Sheen had this to say to TMZ:

“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”

Although Warner Bros. statement effectively cans Charlie, it makes no reference to whether or not the hit show will ever go back into production.

Charlie might have been winning the publicity battles, but it looks like Chuck Lorre ended up winning the ultimate TV war.
