Farieda Bey

Farieda Parveen Bey was Yusuf Ali Bey’s legal wife for more than 20 years. She was also known as Bernice O. Stephens, owing to her marriage to Bey when he used his given name, Joseph Stephens. Farieda Bey bore three of Bey’s 42 children, and held various positions in family-related businesses.

Farieda Bey and one of Bey‘s spiritual wives, Madeeah Bey, each received a $60,000 annual salary for their jobs as staffing assistants at the E.M. Health Services, which failed in 1998, two years after receiving a $1.1 million Oakland city loan to provide health care aide services and training. The city staff had criticized many of E.M. Health’s salaries and other expenditures as being out of line with similar businesses.
