Beyonce and her dad Mathew Knowles are still on the outs it seems, and he is blaming her business partners. Mathew filed papers in a Texas court this week alleging that members of her camp have made “negative comments” about him.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Mathew stole money from his daughter Beyonce. However, in an interview with the Associated Press yesterday, he denied the claim, saying:
“We absolutely have not taken any money from Beyonce, and all dollars will be accounted for. In no way have we stole money. Again, this [is] about the people who have made these claims — they have to come into the light.” Read more excerpts from the interview below:
On his current relationship with his daughter:
The relationship with Beyonce is extremely amicable. I want to make that clear.
On her business partners:
Where there’s concern is the people that she’s doing business with. I’m challenging all of these folks on integrity, professional integrity. The team ironically appeared to be a cross-pollination of Beyonce’s team, Roc Nation’s team, and Live Nation’s team, who ironically have the most to gain. I’ll let people come to their own conclusion.
On finding a solution:
The only way we will be able to understand this is through a court of law. That’s the only way either one of us will be clear if someone in our camps did something that was not correct.
On if he & Beyonce have spoken since she fired him:
We have not had that conversation.
Wow. Not only does their business relationship seem severed, but their daddy-daughter connection, too. And all over money? Too sad.
