Beyonce Dropped Her Dad as Manager

Beyonce’s dad, Matthew Knowles, has managed her career since she was a teenager in Destiny’s Child. Now he’s being dropped. Beyonce says it’s nothing personal. Just business.

“I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” Beyonce said in the statement. “I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps.”

She didn’t say what led to the split, but her father said in a separate statement to the AP late Monday that the decision was mutual.

“He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” Beyonce said.

Knowles also got personal in his statement.

“Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success,” he said.

Rarely if ever is anything “mutual”. Well, at least he can focus on his other daughter’s career now. Hahaha. No, but seriously. What was her sister’s name again?
