Mathew Knowles Weighs In On Jay Z / Solange “Elevator-Gate”

Published: Wednesday 27th Aug 2014 by Sam

Mathew Knowles may have moved on from managing daughter Beyonce, however that hasn’t stopped the former industry force from sharing his pearls of wisdom.

The 63-year-old, whose Music World company launched the careers of Destiny’s Child and its members solo, is currently teaching seminars in Communications and the Music Industry in Houston, Texas.

Currently hard at work promoting the courses, Knowles stopped by The Roula and Ryan Show Podcast – where he offered a number of memorable soundbites.

Beyond dishing on his career and tips for success in the music industry, the businessman:

– Revealed that this year’s Grammy’s was the first time he watched Beyonce perform “as a dad rather than a manager”.

– Confirmed he is still the manager of Destiny’s Child and that new tour from the ladies is likely. 

– Suggests there may have been a promotional angle of sorts from Jay Z and Solange’s elevator-gate. 

Take a listen below…

The most potent tea is spilt from the 5.00 mark…

    Well if that video was indeed staged, then Beybonic and Jay should be ashamed of themselves for stooping so low to receive more publicity for their tour. Beybonic has sat back and watched how most of the talented artists struggle to maintain chart success so in order to avoid that happening yo her, she pulls out all of the controversial stunts she can think of to keep herself from going under like the rest.

    • Iggysus Death To Beysus August 27, 2014

      Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z staged that. How else the elevator leaked? If it was the fault of the hotel security, that person would have already been named.

      The Rihanna and Iggy reign made Beyonce act like a p*** star, sing ratchet and now pulling stunts…and she still cannot get a #1 hit??? Damn. She’s struggling.

      • Bravo!! September 2, 2014

        They named the person and how much the person got paid as well. Mathew knowles is really not sure about the what happen and that let’s you know that Mathew is really not apart of beyonce life as he use to be. I’m sure beyonce invites him to Blueivy birthdays and some holidays. With him not being sure about what happen on the elevator let me know he really don’t have that much talk with beyonce.

    Lol, how you gonna exposed your daughter like that. Is he still bitter about not being her manager any more? Shut up and go look after your illegitimate children.

  3. Beysus August 27, 2014

    Yonce all on his mouth like liquor…

    • That’s Ms Sophia to you August 27, 2014

      Yawnce was also inside his balls sack at one point too bloop

      • Beysus August 27, 2014

        DA FUQ

  4. negro please August 27, 2014

    LMFAO at this desperate fossil. Staged for ticket sales, yet Beyonce just wrapped up the highest grossing solo tour of the year? He will do anything for attention now that he’s not seeing them big bucks anymore. Trying to promote your flop ventures by talking s*** you know nothing about.

  5. Applause August 27, 2014

    If the elevator video was staged then Beyonce really is the fakest b**** in music…

    Mathew spilled that tea, he taught his daughters well, Kelly must have skipped those classes.

    So it was a publicity stunt that paid off, ticket sales went up and Solange’s album went up 200%. Kelly needs to enroll in one of those communication classes Matthew teaches.

    • Sarah August 27, 2014

      Kelly is not fake and you can see that she is genuinely a real person..

      • Rach August 27, 2014

        Every entertainer is fake… it’s their job.

  8. LB August 27, 2014

    So Beyonce really is faker than a $17 dollar bill. Despicable that you would fake something like that for ticket sales, but nothing surprises me about that woman anymore.

    • Barb B**** August 27, 2014

      No one bought tickets to the OTR because of the elevator fight are you serious?

    • Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

      You will believe anything anti Beyoncé. You don’t like the fact she steals but want cheerlead and believe her Dad who is one of the shadiest people ever. Fool.

  9. stop August 27, 2014

    N**** please, you’re on the outside looking in like the rest of us. If he is still close to his family there is NO WAY he would come on here spreading any of these lies. Bey’s clan has never ever worked like that. He is tryna gather publicity to promote his Media training classes and New artists (which will all flop). Lying, thieving, cheating, dead beat. Pay your child support and raise all dem babies you been having.

    • LB August 27, 2014

      In denial?

      You do know he was Beyonce’s manager right?

      • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

        But you can pay the interview dust as soon as he says dc is going to reunite. Why does beyonce need to do that? Plus kelly has a family now.

      • stop August 27, 2014

        ‘Was’.. Past tense. Hasn’t been since the Sasha Fierce era. Ever heard of Parkwood? Bey been managing her own affairs since 2011. He been out of
        Bey’s inner circle for years now. Hell, he’s damn near estranged from them at this point. His own daughters didn’t even go for his wedding, yet here he is tryna front, talmbout ‘I talk to her every sunday’… Grandpa, sit down somewhere and pay your child support.
        All of this is nothing but stunts to drum up publicity for himself, he is on the outside looking in like the rest of us.

  10. Naomi August 27, 2014

    Lol whatever Mathew.

  11. Naomi August 27, 2014

    He is clearly seething because his own daughter pays him dust. This is the dirty snake who cheated on his wife of 30 years and did wrong to group of teenage girls which scared all their careers for life.

  12. MISHKA August 27, 2014

    Daddy Knowles please go and manage some girl group somewhere

  13. CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

    Ooop he’s not gonna be seeing blue for another couple of months after this,

    • Molly August 27, 2014

      Kiii Hey i heard one of Cheryls songs in the mall the other day.

      • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

        I’ve heard her in h&m in the states before. Where was it? Hey btw.

  14. CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

    He needs to manage nicole scherzinger

  15. LOL August 27, 2014

    The millions aren’t rolling in anymore, now he has resorted to lying. It must hurt seeing that Bey is flourishing on her own with Parkwood. 115mil last year and every single dime is going into her pocket, no more manager’s cut for you. Now you tryna spread lies like you know what’s really going on in the circle. N**** please. And ain’t no destiny’s child reunion happening under your supervision.
    Pay ya damn child support and raise your babies! Dead beat

  16. RICHIE_RICH August 27, 2014

    It’s doesn’t make sense to me. Why would she need to?

    • KJ August 27, 2014

      Because it makes no sense. All lies. Notice he was plugging his Media training classes, New girl group and Lecturing throughout the interview. He just said this s*** for publicity.

  17. Barb B**** August 27, 2014

    What happened to From Above mathew? And the haters can’t make up
    their mind. One minute Beyonce wants to portray herself as public, the next she is portraying her family as
    a dirty mess. Mathew knows no more than the next person. Which is why hes mad and trying to do his daughter wrong.

    • Barb B**** August 27, 2014


  18. Kendall August 27, 2014

    Im not shocked he would do something like this to his own daughter. He is the devil in disguise and knows she hates him and proved she can be successful without him. I don’t believe it anyway.

  19. Kendall August 27, 2014

    The elevator fight risked more DAMAGE to the Carters brand. Its not like they were struggling. Smells like b******* to me and Im not the biggest Bey fan.

  20. Molly August 27, 2014

    Beyonce wouldn’t be sh!t without this man so her sorry piece of sh!t fans need to stfu.

    • Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

      That doesn’t give him the right to be petty. Grow up.

  21. Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

    Death. The fact he doesn’t even know what happened is exactly why he is mad. Neither Solange nor Beyoncé use him anymore. It must hurt as their father but being messy aint the way forward Matty. He is like the Joe Jackson of the modern age. Think about it. Mathew wants his daughter to fail so she can go running back to him. Not gonna happen.

  22. Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

    And the same people hoping their marriage was failing will be the same people believing that it was a stunt. SHEEP!

  23. smh August 27, 2014

    Honestly it’s so sad to see him stop this low to lie for publicity. The decline is real cause Mathew Knowles from back in the day would NEVER even do an interview like this. Smh

  24. Mark111 August 27, 2014

    Remember kids, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Latoya, Lasagna and Ferret told us years ago how the Knowles are, if you don’t think Beyonce isn’t like her no good father, then ask Beyonce’s writers. They had to step on so many people just to get here, I still ask myself if Bey was so great, then why didn’t she go solo from jump? Aaliyah, Brandy, Monica, Britney all did it.

    • How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) August 27, 2014

      Nope they told us how Mathew was. And you chose to believe him.

    • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

      Death. Where are those girls now? Kiii

  25. Sarah August 27, 2014

    I see nothing wrong with what he said…Matthew taught Beyonce to be the media trained person she is today.did you guys even LISTEN..he said the leaking of the video may have been staged…not the fight itself…that was obviously the real kids these days just dont listen

  26. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) August 27, 2014

    Why would you get on an interview and talk about your daughter like this? Obviously Beyoncé haters will have a field day with this but realize they are taking the side of a man who knows how to pull strings. This doesn’t even just involve Beyoncé. Its about Jay Z and Solange as well. And the only reason you would talk about your child like this (whether its true or nor) is because you’re pissed about something. I’m not being biased but it makes no sense. What publicity do they honestly need? And certainly not negative publicity. It didn’t make any difference to any of their endeavours. He’s looking for something.

  27. smh August 27, 2014

    So did he happen to miss every major performance she’s done since she fired him 4 years ago? Cause you aint been her manager since the 4 era began.
    DC3 is disbanded. Stop trying to tease fans like anything is going to happen. If they do come together like they have been doing recently, it will be as Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
    His broke ass is clearly still on that white substance for him to be this delusional and desperate. So sad

  28. Brandys Starr August 27, 2014

    I don’t believe it because the Elevator fight posed more of a risk to the Carters. There is such a thing as a bad publicity when you’re trying to promote a unified concert. And the Carters brand is all about unity and power. Those cracks could have really harmed them. And their Tour was already selling like wildfire before the elevator fight anyway lol.

  29. Danny b August 27, 2014

    I doubt Solange could stage that type of anger and level of ass whooping yet alone Jay Z taking it. Y’all will believe ANYTHING negative when it comes to Beyonce I swear. The tooth fairy could say she killed Mickey Mouse and y’all would spread that s*** like it was the Bible. Girl bye. I guess when the higher you are the more ppl want to see you on the bottom.

  30. lets be real August 27, 2014

    Mathew, BYE! ur mad Beyonce don’t do biz with you anymore and trying to throw shade.its really sad tbh THIS IS YOUR DAUGHTER, why don’t you be nice so she can cut you some change for those illegitimate children

  31. ENOUGH ONIKA August 27, 2014

    This is coming from a man who stole from his own daughter and cheated on his wife with multiple times for years. Your credibility is zero…
