Kanye West Parts Ways With Longtime Manager Izvor ‘Izzy’ Zivkovic
Kanye West is on to the next one.
While he's apparently been focused on music, spending time in remote Wyoming to get his creative juices flowing, he also made a major business move by parting ways with his longtime manager Izvor "Izzy" Zivkovic, Billboard reports.
Zivkovic, who also manages Arcade Fire, Banks, Jack Garratt, and Kevin Garrett, had been managing Kanye since 2010. It's unclear what led to the business shift and Zivkovic has not yet responded publicly to the news.
Scooter Braun (of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande managing fame) was brought in as co-manager in 2016, and will now reportedly take over all of Kanye's managerial duties.
Most recently, Kanye was in Washington, D.C. at the March for Our Lives rally, which he attended with his wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter, North West. As aforementioned, he's seemingly been focused on music, and G.O.O.D. Music artist, Teyana Taylor, has said that her album— which he executive produced— is completely finished and ready to drop, signaling the return of the old Kanye for diehard fans.
Beyond music, Kanye is continuing his creative streak in fashion. His new Adidas-backed Yeezy 500 sneakers are due to hit stores next month.
