Almost synonymous with the name Beyonce is that of her father Mathew Knowles. Having steered both Destiny’s Child and Beyonce (as a solo star) to the top, Mathew has come to be known as one of the industry’s most recognised managers.
However, new reports are suggesting that Mathew’s increasingly controversial behaviour has caused Beyonce to cease from speaking to him, an issue not only problematic due to their personal ties, but also their business dealings.
Get the full scoop after the jump…
Via the New York Post:
Beyonce Knowles is still refusing to speak to her dad and manager, Matthew Knowles, after he fathered a love child with a woman 20 years his junior — and suits at her record label fear the rift could damage her career.
The superstar singer was horrified when it was alleged last year that Matthew had an 18-month affair with 38-year-old Alexsandra Wright and DNA tests confirmed he’d fathered her son, Nixon, while still married to Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles.
Now, sources tell Page Six that relations between Beyoncé, who is very close to her mom, and her father have reached such a low point that executives at her label, Columbia, are worried.
Matthew guided Beyoncé’s career through her days with Destiny’s Child and is still her manager.
But one music industry insider said, “Beyoncé was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mom. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mom, so this has hit her really hard. She is refusing to speak to him, which is making things difficult where it comes to managing her career. Some people at Columbia now think it would be better to move him aside.”
