Alicia Keys is on a roll and sorting out every aspect of her life. She’s in love with Swizz Beatz and the happy couple is expecting a child. And now it’s her career’s turn to steal the focus. Alicia has parted ways with her longtime manager, Jeff Robinson. This apparently was long overdue, and her hubby-to-be helped her in making the decision, sources reveal, “Her fiance Swizz Beatz definitely played a huge part in killing him off. She got smart — and got a smart boyfriend — after years of people around her telling her she was crazy to let this continue to happen.”
The “crazy” they’re talking about is Robinson charging Alicia a 25% commission. And when she was starting out, he got a very substantial 33% for a longggg time. Now it’s time for him to go and make money off someone else. A company announcement stated, “Keys and Robinson have mutually and amicably agreed to pursue other opportunities. This decision will allow Alicia [and her company, AK Worldwide] more control over all aspects of her career.” That’s called taking care of business.
