The other day we learned that Kanye West parted ways with his longtime manager Izvor “Izzy” Zivkovic.
If you think there's a Kardashian woman behind that move, you'd be correct.
Page Six is reporting that the reality TV clan's matriarch and behind-the-scenes mover-and-shaker Kris Jenner encouraged 'Ye to dump Izzy.
“They’ve been off and on for years,” said a source of West and Zivkovic. “But Kris is in [West’s] ears. Kanye’s been making changes and [he and Zivkovic] have grown apart — but Kris definitely gives her opinion and Kanye’s all ears. She’s about brand building and is gangster at it,” the insider said.
She's also apparently told her other rapper son-in-law Travis Scott to dump his management.
“She also told Travis Scott [father of Kris’ new granddaughter, Stormi, with Kylie Jenner] to fire Mark Gillespie. They are 100 percent part of that Kardashian-Jenner brand.” Scott left Gillespie’s Three Six Zero management last month, weeks before West parted ways with Zivkovic.
Kanye is still holed up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming working on his next project. Scott, his frequent collaborator, has been one of the artists who's visited 'Ye in the resort town.
