Beyonce has reportedly sacked her manager so she can be her own boss.

The songstress and husband Jay Z, right, are now in total control of her career after ditching Live Nation executive Faisal Durrani, although insiders close to the star maintained Jay doesn't hold an official professional position.

"Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce's career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour," a source told the Daily Mirror. "But he isn't officially regarded as her manager - she really is independent."

The change is said to have occurred so Beyonce's career is handled with her family in mind, as the couple reportedly are 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 source said.

"The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband - together."

However, a spokesperson for Beyonce insisted Jay isn't "involved in her management", and claimed she has been in control herself for four years.

"Beyonce has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment," they explained.

"Faisal Durrani worked for her as general manager for a very short time. Jay Z is not involved in her management."

This is not the first time the Drunk in Love hitmaker has reshuffled her team. In 2011 the 32-year-old sacked her long-time manager and father Matthew Knowles, who had overseen her career since she was in Destiny's Child in the 1990s.
