Beyonce and her sleazy dad have a very interesting relationship. He helped her gain international fame by managing her career, but now B wants to cut all ties--professionally.
Mathew Knowles has been managing B since she first began her career with Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s, so she's “grateful” for all he's done, but now wants to separate her personal and professional relationship.
She said in a statement: “I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage me and own their own businesses. They are hard working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps.
“He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me.”
Her dad released a similar statement talking about how the decision was mutual, blah, blah.
They do this every couple of years. He f**ks up big time personally and she cuts him off professionally. Last time they had a fall out was when he knocked up some young girl while he was still married to Beyonce's mom. What a class act.
More recently her dad booked her for a multi-million dollar gig from Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi to perform a private concert on New Year’s Eve 2009.
After she found out who she performed for, she donated the money to the earthquake-stricken Caribbean nation of Haiti, but she also blamed her father for the move.
She said: “Ultimately, Matthew Knowles should be accountable for that decision, and I do accept responsibility.”
Time to cut him out professionally and move on--he's worse than creepy Joe Simpson!
