Beyoncé wants a new start.
Queen B fired her entire staff and hired new management. She parted ways with general manager Lee Anne Callahan-Longo after a 10-year partnership, Page Six reports.
Steve Pamon has taken over her duties. Pamon, formerly of JPMorgan Chase, worked with Beyoncé on the singer’s 2014 “On the Run” tour.
“Beyoncé basically cleaned house, got rid of her whole team, which included her cousin, and hired a new team,” a source told Page Six. “She wants to surround herself with business people who could take her career to an even higher level.”
Beyonce, who is set to take the stage with Coldplay at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, upcoming album helped fuel this decision.
“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., the source told Page Six.”
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,” Noel-Schure said. “Some senior staffers were given the opportunity to reposition and stay on. Some members…awakened [to] new interests and decided to follow personal routes.
Noel-Schure added, “Lee Anne Callahan-Longo has worked with Beyoncé for the last 10 years,” she added. “Their friendship supersedes business, and while she is no longer an employee of Parkwood, she will remain an imperative part of Beyoncé’s life.”
