According to reports, Jenner played a key role in having Ye ditched longtime manager Izvor “Izzy” Zivkovic.
“They’ve been off and on for years,” said a source of West and Zivkovic. “But Kris is in [West’s] ears. Kanye’s been making changes and [he and Zivkovic] have grown apart — but Kris definitely gives her opinion and Kanye’s all ears. She’s about brand building and is gangster at it,” the insider said.

Jenner is also helping guide the power moves of Travis Scott.
“She also told Travis Scott [father of Kris’ new granddaughter, Stormi, with Kylie Jenner] to fire Mark Gillespie. They are 100 percent part of that Kardashian-Jenner brand.” Scott left Gillespie’s Three Six Zero management last month, weeks before West parted ways with Zivkovic. (Page Six)
Last month, news went viral about Kanye reportedly parting ways with his longtime manager.
Zivkovic has been part of West’s management team for a number of years and was considered a close confidant of the MC. In May 2016, the Life of Pablo rapper added Scooter Braun to his management team. Braun was not part of the shakeup involving Zivkovic, and is expected to take on all management responsibilities for West, who is repped by CAA. (Billboard)
In early March, buzz developed about Travis Scott cutting ties with his management team.
Rapper Travis Scott is negotiating an exit from Three Six Zero Management, Variety has learned through multiple sources, and is expected to announce new representation imminently.
