Back in March, Beyonce dumped her father Matthew Knowles as her manager. Still, the songstress stressed the split was merely professional: “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me.”
But now TMZ has uncovered legal papers that paint an unfortunate story: Matthew claims Beyonce thinks he took heaps of money from her when she was on her 2011 World Tour.
Is this what you call fatherly love?
It’s a little confusing, but it seems that Live Nation Entertainment informed B that her father “had stolen money from Beyonce on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to.”
Beyonce’s lawyers began an audit, and eventually determined that Daddy had been pilfering funds. According to Matthew Knowles, Beyonce replaced him with a manager who had previously been an executive at Live Nation.
Of course, Matthew claims innocence and is asking a judge to let him take depositions, (fancy word for investigative, legal interviews), of some Live Nation employees.
Cmon Matthew! I can’t believe she wouldn’t support you if you asked. No reason to surreptitiously steal money under the table. Watch out, she may write a sassy song about you if you’re not careful:
Daddy issues are never in style.
