Reports from Jay Z’s circle claim he has split with his business manager John Meneilly.

Reports from Jay Z’s circle claim he has split with his business manager John Meneilly, who helped Hov build his RocNation empire from the ground up, reports NYDailyNews.

Music industry insiders exclusively told the site that Jay Z has cut ties with John Meneilly, who helped build the “Empire State” rapper’s empire.

According to one well-placed music industry insider, Meneilly didn’t want to go, “It wasn’t his choice.”

Though a second source close to the split described it as “amicable and mutual” and says the agreement was made “a couple months ago.”

While Jay Z has always been reluctant to call Meneilly his “manager,” he referred to his once trusted confidant as his “consigliore,” according to Forbes writer Zack O’Malley Greenburg, who literally wrote the book on the Brooklyn music mogul. - NYDailyNews
