Official: Gospel Singer Le’andria Johnson Denies Calling Matthew Knowles A “Crook”

Published: Friday 1st Nov 2013 by Rashad


Grammy winning gospel songstress Le’andria Johnson set the net ablaze hours ago when messages were lifted to her Twitter slamming Music World Gospel label head/famed manager Matthew Knowles (father of pop superstar Beyonce) for being a “crook”.

The original message (which has now been removed) was accompanied with a phone number soliciting media requests for interviews.  As word quickly spread across the Web and courted the attention of secular and gospel outlets alike, it appears the ‘Sunday Best’ champion’s team is trying to shut down the story.

Official statement inside…

Official Statement from Le’andria Johnson:

“A recent posting has appeared on Ms. Johnson’s Twitter account which alleged that Mr. Knowles of Music World is a “crook”.  Ms. Johnson did not post the message on her Twitter account. A disgruntled associate has admitted to the posting and will be disciplined.”  – rep for Leandria Johnson

“The problem has been handled.  The posting should never have appeared and I regret that this has occurred.” – Leandria Johnson

    Matthew Knowles, who has a Bsc in Business Administration is clearly too smart for you Le’andria.

    He must have shown you how much in damages you’ll be liable for if you slander, defame and opt to back out of contractual obligations.

    This is a lesson for you, next time think before you rant. Matthew Knowles, who has a Bsc in Business Administration, an accomplished businessman and the architect behind Destiny’s Child is a BUSINESSMAN FIRST not your nanny to hold your hand.

    He must of hit her (literally) with a lawsuit! Run Le’andria

  3. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 1, 2013

    You entered into a mutual beneficial contractual agreement with Matthew Knowles company, knowing that there are contractual obligations you will have to fulfill.

    Next time Le’andria, like the supposed “good” christian that you are, think before you rant.

    Matthew Knowles, who has a Bsc in Business Administration, is intellectually superior to you, listen to him, he knows what he’s talking about.

    Just because you couldn’t understand a simple accounting term does not make Matthew a crook, I hope you apologized for your baseless rant.

      You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about. MusicWorld is close to being sold. His R&B artists flopped. All of them. He is living off of Destiny’s Child’s Greatest Hits and making artists release multiple projects just to stay afloat. MusicWorld artists are also BANNED from the largest urban radio company RADIO ONE because of Knowles’ bad business dealings. His label frontliners Micah Stampley and Trinitee 5:7 ran from their contracts and were released from them. LeAndria is trying to run from hers. He LOST the Sunday Best winner deal to Kirk Franklin’s label because of artist complaints and possible lawsuits against BET/Viacom. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Music World is a sinking ship.

      “…think before you rant”.

      Umm, maybe you can take your OWN advice.

      #1 – Le’Andria had no control over what label she was being signed under when she auditioned for ‘Sunday Best’.


      #2 – She didn’t make the rant, someone on her team did under her account.

      #3 – MWG is in financial DEBT up the yingyang and you think Matthew “knows what he’s talking about”??? LOL!! No no no, Britney Jean. Maybe in the secular music world, but not in the gospel music world.

      Yeah…make sure YOU “apologize for your baseless rant”.

    Lovebird please stop saying BSC in Business Administration, you say it like it’s some invulnerable shield protecting an individual from ever making a mistake. Not so. Plenty of men with far more degrees than Matthew Knowles have made many mistakes in business. Matthew’s BSC never ended up lifting any other artist’s career to the heights he did for Beyonc.

    As for the post, interesting they didn’t say hacked and said it was some personal rep. Interesting indeed. Gospel world is going down with drama lately.

    • Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 1, 2013

      And yet his label MWG was #3 in market share in 2012. The guy clearly knows what he’s doing.

    I love this young lady & believe that thee is something that has bought her to this point.Stay strong in the Lord & don’t allow anyone or thing to separate you from your journey with God. I saw where you came from & the progress you have made, don’t allow satan to bring you down. Continue to uplift God in praise & stand on your truth. Church people are just like all people they sin too, I hear your hurt & disgust about this.. Hold on to God let him order your steps, be blessed I love who you are.
