Jay-Z to sell stake in Brooklyn Nets

Sep 4 2013, 5:42am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Jay Z is selling his stake in the Brooklyn Nets basketball team for $500,000.

The rap superstar has a minority share in the club - estimated to be .067 per cent - which he has decided to sell to coach Jason Kidd, according to the New York Post newspaper.

Jay had to get rid of his share after starting his own sports agency, Roc Nation, which began signing up players such as New York Yankees baseball star Robinson Cano and Oklahoma City basketball player Kevin Durant, leading to his two business ventures being deemed a conflict of interests.

A source said: "Other owners want to give Jason a part ownership of the team, and urged Jay to sell his shares to him."

The 'Holy Grail' rapper first got involved with the Nets - previously known as the New Jersey Nets - in 2003 after Drew Katz, the son of one of the Nets' principal owners, introduced him to the board on the advice of Kidd.

Although Jay has a small share he was heavily involved in the running of the club and even helped design the team logos and choose the Nets' stark black-and-white colour scheme, which had initially been objected to by the NBA.

Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov bought 80 per cent ownership of the team in 2009 and was keen to use the hip-hop mogul to promote the Nets, even featuring in a series of billboard posters with him.

Kidd - who previously played as a point guard for the Nets - signed on as coach in June.

Beyonce posts Louvre photos on her Tumblr, she posed with the Mona Lisa

Oct 13 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Last week, we talked about the photos of Beyonce, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy in Paris, as they were heading into the Louvre. Beyonce wore six-inch platform heels and leather pants, which are quite the styling choices for sight-seeing. I questioned, at the time, if Blue was really old enough to appreciate a museum like the Louvre. It’s not that toddlers can’t or shouldn’t be exposed to art and all that, but I just thought Blue specifically was t ...

Nicki Minaj will quit music in 4 years to become a full-time mom

Oct 9 2014 6:05am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Nicki Minaj covers the October issue of Vogue Italia to promote her third album, The Pink Print. The shoot is menswear inspired, and you can see the editorial here. I’m still adjusting to the sight of Nicki without her day-glo hair. She’s been dressing “normal” all year long, but it’s still surprising. Losing the crazy wigs was a good move. I just find it amusing that she toned down her look right before releasing her ridiculous, NSFW “Anaconda” video. This interview has a f ...

Beyonce wore 6-inch platform boots when her family went to the Louvre: ugh?

Oct 8 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Beyonce, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy are still in Paris. They’ve been in Paris for a month now. Their original reason for staying there was the final leg of the On the Run Tour, which ended when HBO filmed their Paris concerts for a special. But weeks later, they’re still hanging out in Paris. I guess they just really like it there. It also seems like they’re reconnecting away from the constant buzz of New York, their homebase, and the city where a lot of sh-t has gone down this year. ...
