In what will sure to be having many a music critic whispering and wondering about for years to come, Beyonce‘s former manager and father has slammed her new team for whom he says are to blame for the setbacks her latest LP ‘4‘ has faced.
Suggesting that the only reason the album sold what it did was due to his daughter’s star power and not the efforts of a well orchestrated plan.
This comes just days after it was revealed that the ‘Single Ladies‘ starlet had allegedly parted with her father’s management over claims that he was stealing money from her.

Speaking to the Associated Press on her new LP, he admitted:
“”They put out the record in a vacuum, it makes you believe that there are some artists that don’t need radio. There are some records that don’t need a record label, and Beyonce is one of those artists.”
Going onto address the issue that Jay Z and others may have conspired to oust him, he revealed:
“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. I’m challenging all of these folks on integrity, professional integrity”
Whilst many have been critical of Mr.Knowles’ alleged business dealings in the past, there is no doubt that some fans of his daughter will agree that the release album could have been handed better.
However if Mrs.Carter did indeed part ways with her father over the issue of swindling money from her, it would shine a light on some of the grey areas that so many of her fans were confused about when it was announced she had left Music World.
It would explain why she would leave his management just months before the release of a new album which would have been sure to add an extra if not overbearing stress to the already gruelling task of pushing an LP.
Only time will tell how this saga will play out.
Here’s to hoping that whatever happens, the relationship between Beyonce and her father and most interestingly Jay Z and her father, is not affected negatively by it in the long term.
For Mr.Knowles has admitted that he has not spoken to his daughter since he ceased to serve as her manager.
