Alicia Keys Terminates Long Term Manager Jeff Robinson

 

Alicia Keys has ended her longtime partnership with her manager Jeff Robinson.

Robinson was a major part in Keys success from the beginning as the relationship lasted over ten years.

Keys and Robinson announced the news on Friday in a joint statement.

They also revealed that will continue to collaborate and produce future albums through MBK/J Records while Keys will now oversee her career, according to a statement.

Alicia’s company,  AK Worldwide, will now oversee her immense opportunities ranging from touring and licensing to film, television, and new business development.

“This decision will allow Alicia more control over all aspects of her career from singing and songwriting, to leading many business ventures and social causes,” read a statement, adding that the decision was “mutually agreed upon and amicable.”

I guess Alicia is no longer “my brother’s keeper.”  First Kerry, now Jeff.  SMH

    That’s what I’m talking about. Cutting out the middle man. Keep all that money in house.

    Good – Ms Keys is maturing and expanding in the business and deserves to go for it. Ms Keys is a Superwoman and is very capable of controlling her own assets and liabilities. Everyone in the business looks forward to this step of faith and trust the hardwork. Ms Keys needs to move forward for herself and family. Excellent move !!!!!
