Industry veteran Kevin Liles and his wife, Erika, are proud parents of a baby girl, according to the NY Post’s Page Six. Liles manages singers Trey Songz and Keyshia Cole, and rappers Nelly and Big Sean.
Music mogul Kevin Liles sprinted between President Obama’s swanky fund-raiser at a Park Avenue penthouse and Lenox Hospital between 6:30 and 9 Monday night. The former Def Jam honcho’s wife, Erika Jones, was in labor during the intimate dinner, where tickets went for $71,600 per couple. Liles, who manages artists like Trey Songz, Big Sean and Nelly, arrived with Carmelo Anthony but dashed back and forth between the hospital and the event four times to check on Erika, who gave birth to their daughter, Genevieve, early yesterday morning. “[Obama] told me to go,” Liles told Page Six. “I said I have stayed as long as I can, and he said, ‘You have served your country.’ ” No word if Liles’ wife had an angrier response about his shuttle diplomacy.
