Shocking news coming out of Hollywood tonight. Word is Beyonce will be following in the footsteps of fellow Destinys Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams and will be dumping her father Mathew Knowles as her manager.
According to the Associate Press, Beyonce’s manager, Yvette Noel-Schure, released a statement saying the 16 time Grammy Winner and her father have parted ways “on a professional level.”
“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.”
Neither Noel-Schure or Beyonce disclosed what caused the break-up, however, I cannot imagine it was his actual management style. Despite getting a bad rap over the years, Mathew took Destiny’s Child and Beyonce to the heights of worldwide fame and made them millionaires many times over. Beyonce in particular has fared quite well under the tutelage of her father, becoming one of the most successful and respected women in music history.
Stay tuned… I’m sure this story will develop more in the coming days.
