Rihanna Fires Jay-Z As Her Manager

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Months ago there were rumors that Rihanna wasn’t happy with how she was being managed by Jay-Z and his team at RocNation. In addition to financial issues, she was reportedly concerned once the company started unofficially managing Beyonce that big endorsement deals would be offered to her first. Jay-Z talked her into staying, but now days after Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement, sources say that Rihanna has decided to find new management. Rihanna was also upset that the company used her to jump start unknown artists’ careers, and as mentioned earlier, she just filed a lawsuit over a Beverly Hills mansion she bought from her manager’s sister, which turned out to be leakey and poorly-constructed.

Oh Brittany, this is not good. In a shoot for Tyler Shields, known for taking blood-strewn photos of Lindsay Lohan, Heather Morris sports a fake black eye. Many are complaining that the shots glamorize domestic violence, but Shields responded, “In no way were we promoting domestic violence. We wanted to do a bruised-up Barbie shoot and that’s exactly what we did!” Uh, doesn’t “bruised-up Barbie” promote violence against women? [E!]
