Kanye West Confirms Rumors Saying He Fired Manager

The 'Gold Digger' hitmaker takes to Twitter to confirm the news, saying that he no longer has a manager because he 'can't be managed.'

AceShowbiz - The rumors are true, after all. Kanye West took to Twitter on Wednesday, April 25, to confirm reports he had parted ways with his remaining manager Scooter Braun, the man masterminding the careers of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, and two entertainment lawyers, after they refused to ditch their other clients and work full-time for the rap superstar.

Revealing he would not be replacing Braun or his other longtime representative, Izvor 'Izzy' Zivkovic, who he split from in March, Kanye wrote, "I no longer have a manager. I can't be managed."

"I'm nobody's 'client,' " he added, explaining he was working on streamlining his circle of advisors, so he can bring everything in-house. The hip-hop superstar went on to outline his vision for his business empire.

"We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year," he tweeted. "Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year. It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn."

He also boasted about becoming the "single highest paid person in footwear," allegedly raking in more cash than basketball player Michael Jordan and his Jordan brand. He then unveiled plans to expand his Yeezy firm beyond clothing and sneakers and make his pricey products more affordable.

"there's been a lot of fake news so I just wanted to give you the facts," he stated. "Yeezy will become the biggest apparel company in human history by working with the most genius level talents and creating product at an affordable price. I hired the head of supply chain from the Gap. We will reach the prices I've promised."

"I am this generations Ford Hughes Jobs Disney (sic)," he declared, likening himself to business magnates Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Steve Jobs, and Walt Disney - comparisons he previously made at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

Shortly after Kanye's early morning Twitter rampage, it was reported the rapper had already filed 24 trademark applications to use the Yeezy name for a variety of products and services, including toys, video games, cosmetics, jewellery, music and record production, and retail stores, among other endeavours.

All the paperwork was filed with U.S. officials on April 20.
