In a letter posted on his website Life+Times, the hip-hop mogul confirmed that he has sold his ownership stake in the sports team, but remains a Nets fan forever.

“It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun,” wrote Jay, who still plans to attend the games.
He was forced to sell his investment in the team so that he could pursue his latest venture, Roc Nation Sports, which signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano as their first client.
“For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets
,” said Jay.

Read the full letter below.

Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.
The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.

K.Michelle tells ABC News Radio why it’s unhealthy tocontinue LAHH ATL.
Read some of the highlights of the interview below:

Confirming she’s Leaving L&HHATL and hints on another VH1 Show:

“If I know something is unhealthy for me why keep doing it. I’m not saying that I’m not dealing with other ventures with VH1 and Mona [Scott Young, the creator]. …You might see me in Love & Hip Hop New York. You never know.”

On Her Relationship with Mimi After Their Fight in NYC:

“You know I recently spoke with Mimi — I can’t give the show away — but I did apologize to her because at no means is it ever appropriate to slap somebody. Especially with my mom being there and that being my first sold out show at B. B. King’s and that’s very monumental for an artist and for you to come to my event; I don’t do that. But I will take the responsibility…I should’ve just walked away from Mimi instead of making her smell the flowers.”

Hints Mimi and New Boyfriend Niko Broke Up:

“I can’t tell you that. You know I’m always right in my beliefs. You know, I’m very intuitive to things and to people. Yeah. That’s for you guys to find out; for her to tell.”

On Rasheeda:

“I have no respect for her. I hope her child doesn’t have the same morals as her and her husband. …The world is already messed up enough. We don’t even need another seed that has no morals, no nothing.”

On New Castmate DJ Tracy Steele:

“She’s an opportunist. I have no problem with this lady but I can tell an opportunist when I see one. She’ll do whatever she’s told to stay on that camera.”

Why She’s Leaving L&HHATL:

“I think it’s a lot of jealousy between my cast members, and they can’t say it’s not. It’s not my fault that God didn’t give them no talent. That’s not my fault that you didn’t take your platform and do something else with it.”
