Rapper Jay-Z has sold his stake in basketball team the Brooklyn Nets (formerly the New Jersey Nets) to the team's coach, former baller Jason Kidd.
The Hova signed over his ownership stake to Kidd for around $500,000.
Beyoncé's hubby had to sell his stake in the NBA team not because he wanted to, but because he had to. It was a conflict of interest after he formed his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports. He could not own a sports agency and represent players while owning part of an NBA team.
A source said, "Other owners want to give Jason a part ownership of the team, and urged Jay to sell his shares to him."
