Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez Will get Trump Pardon. May This Be A Energy Transfer By Jay-Z?

Former President Trump disclosed Last-minute commutations and pardons on Wednesday at 1 a.m., Variety reported. There were many people on the list, from executives to politicians, including former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and rappers Kodak Black and Lil Wayne. To everyone’s surprise, an unexpected name appeared on Trump’s grace list – Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez. According to the publication, Desiree and her husband are close friends with Jay-Z. Perez’s husband, Juan, is also the CEO of Roc Nation Sports.

A statement from the former press secretary about Desiree’s pardon for the president specified Trump took into account the positive changes the leader has made in her life since her conviction to distribute narcotics.

“President Trump has given Desiree Perez a full apology. Ms. Perez was involved in a narcotics distribution conspiracy. Since her conviction, Ms. Perez has taken full responsibility for her actions and changed her life, ”the letter reads. “She was employed and campaigned for criminal justice reform in her community.”

A staple of the music industry, the Cuban-American Desiree was named to the top in 2019. That same year, Billboard Magazine was named Executive Of The Year during the publication’s annual Women in Music event. She runs the organization’s many outlets such as activism, television and films, music, publishing, and touring. The multi-million dollar entertainment and sports organization is home to today’s best-known names in pop culture including Shakira, J. Cole, Rihanna, Big Sean, and Megan Thee Stallion, Variety reported.

According to Variety, Desiree was arrested in 1994 for drug possession and in 1998 for gun possession and grand theft. After becoming an informant for the US Attorney’s Office, she was sentenced to five years probation. She violated her parole and was imprisoned for nine months in 1999.

“I am grateful to have received an apology and to have officially closed this chapter of my life in the eyes of the law,” the 52-year-old Cubana told Variety. “I took full responsibility for my mistakes 25 years ago, but I am also very proud of my personal growth, my perseverance and my achievements since then. This pardon reaffirms my lifelong commitment to advocating criminal justice reform and social justice initiatives. “

It’s also fair to note that Jay-Z and Beyonce have been extremely vocal about their support for the Obama administration. The Carters have been relatively quiet during this last election cycle. According to an insider, the Roc Nation owner didn’t want to get on Trump’s bad side – especially if it could help Perez.

“As anyone who has worked with the Trump White House knows, you can’t piss him off or he’ll get revenge,” the source told Variety.

Although the transfer of power is speculative, Jay-Z is trying to get into the cannabis business, and Desiree’s criminal record could have disrupted that plan.
