So word on the streets is that Kelly Rowland is ditching "Matthew Knowles" (Beyonce's father and manager and also manager to Michelle Williams) for 19 Entertainment’s Simon Fuller.
Simon Fuller is one of the most successful artist managers of all time and is globally recognised for his work. Simon Fuller is also the co-creator and executive producer of the US hit talent series So You Think You Can Dance and several other US and European TV shows. He is the manager of a group of iconic performers and entertainers including David and Victoria Beckham, Claudia Schiffer, Annie Lennox, Spice Girls, Carrie Underwood, Will Young, and others.
Sources close to SONY/BMG confirm Kelly will announce Simon as her new manager at the top of the year.
Of course there has been rumors like this before, about Kelly leaving Matthew, but this one seems more legit. I really do hope that this is true, because if Kelly wants to become any type of successful artist, she needs change the people around her, change is good. This might not be the case, but it looks as if Matthew Knowles doesn't give a shit about anyone else but the (apparently) Legendary Beyonce. Kelly Rowlands album "Ms. Kelly" was such a solid album, it didn't deserve to flop the way it did. If Kelly could have got some damn promotion that wouldn't have been the case.
