Beyonce has decided to dump her dad as her manager. After all these years Beyonce is letting Mathew Knowles go as herÂ manager…it must be hard to fire your dad…or easy depending on her relationship with him! Mathew Â has been Beyonce’s manager for years starting with Destiny’s Child Â and the continues when Beyonce went solo.
“He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly,” the now 29-year-old singer said in a statement obtained by E! News, adding that she’s ever grateful for the impact he made on her career over the years.
Mathew released his own statement,
The decision for Beyonce and Music World Entertainment to part was mutual. We did great things together, and I know that she will continue to conquer new territories in music and entertainment. Currently, I am very focused on the tremendous investment that our record label has made in the gospel/inspirational genre of music and on our supremely talented roster of artists, including Trin-i-tee 5:7, Brian Courtney Wilson, Juanita Bynum, Micah Stampley, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Pastor Rudy and others.
Music World will continue its partnership with Sony with Destiny’s Child and UK female group From Above, as well as management. We will also continue to develop the Music World family of labels: Music World Country/Compadre, Music World Kids and Music World Music. In Music World’s repositioning it will not continue its label/management role with Columbia/Sony artist Tiffany Evans.
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.
What do youÂ thinkÂ was this mutual, did Mathew really want to concentrate on the gospel music on his label or did Beyonce want to change it up. I am sure that Beyonce has made him tons of money so, why would he just let her go…?
