Jay Z is keeping quiet despite the rising pressure from fans, celebrities and civil rights groups for him to end his partnership with Barneys New York following accusations of racial profiling.

The 43-year-old music mogul, currently in Sweden for his "Magna Carter" world tour, was peppered with questions from paparazzi and reporters.

But as the Daily News Reports, he did not respond.

One of his handlers is quoted as saying, “Jay Z is not allowed to speak on this matter."

He goes on to add, “Jay Z maybe will give an answer when the collection is launched at Barneys.”

Jay Z's holiday collaboration with Barneys is set to launch on November 20th with items ranging from $70 to $33,900.
