Kanye West Wants to Manage Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rivalries, Rumors,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West wants to manage Kim Kardashian's career.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been working with her mother, Kris Jenner, since she first found fame after her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007, but her rapper fiance is reportedly now "totally in charge" behind the scenes and is starting to leave his future mother-in-law out of important meetings.

"Kanye is now totally in charge of Kim's career and his non-stop wheeling and dealing is leaving Kris out of control. Kanye has managed to get Kim to cut her magazine and media appearances by a shocking level and that's going directly against Kris' plan to seize every publicity opportunity offered to her daughters," a source said.

The "New Slaves" hitmaker, who is living with Kris while the couple's new home in Bel Air, California undergoes extensive renovations, is allegedly eager for Kim, 33, to end some of her current contracts so she take on more high-level projects. "His goal is to get people to respect Kim and take her seriously -- it's basically the same kind of thing he did when he was launching his rap career after being known primarily as a producer," the insider said.

Beyonce Sacks Her General Manager

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors,

BeyonceBeyonce has sacked her manager and become her own boss.

The "Drunk In Love" hitmaker and Jay Z are now in total control of her career after ditching Live Nation executive Faisal Durrani, although her husband doesn't hold an official professional position.

"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," a source said.

The change in focus is to make sure her career is handled with her family in mind, and with the couple reportedly keen to give their two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a sibling in the future. "Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there's talk of them adding to the brood. The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband - together," the insider added.

Ke$ha Came Close to Death

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors,

Ke$haKesha "almost died" from her eating disorder.

The "Tik Tok" hitmaker checked into rehab earlier this month to seek help for anorexia and bulimia and her mother Pebe Sebert says her condition was so bad, doctors were amazed she was still managing to perform on stage.

"I've watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died. The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they'd never seen it that low except with someone who'd had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn't already dropped dead on stage," Pebe said.

According to her mother - who has also checked into Timberline Knolls clinic alongside her daughter to deal with the stress of the situation - Kesha had battled body image issues since her school days, but things got worse when she signed with producer Dr. Luke and former manager David Sonenberg when she was just 18.

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen's manager and lawyer have quit.

The Anger Management star's long-time team of advisors, including his manager, Mark Burg, entertainment lawyer, Jake Bloom, and publicist, Larry Solters, resigned from their posts last week, as he has stopped listening to their advice.

"The bottom line was that Mark, Larry and Jake were unable to work effectively for Charlie. He is too much of a loose cannon at the moment with his increasingly erratic and bizarre behavior and outrageous statements. He was refusing to listen to their advice and counsel," a source said.

But an insider close to the 48-year-old actor, who lashed out at his ex-wife Denise Richards in recent days for allegedly preventing him from seeing their daughters Sam, nine, and Lola, eight, over the Christmas holidays, insisted he terminated his team. "They didn't resign, they were all fired," the insider said.

The X Factor judge was in Bulgaria when Tim proposed to her, she recalled in an interview on The Queen Latifah Show, which airs tomorrow. "He put a ring on it! He asked me first on Skype and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other.' But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other ... and he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes," she gushed.
