She may have made up a powerful third of his most successful group to date but it seems Mathew Knowles is unhappy with Kelly Rowland‘s success as a solo entrepreneur.
Well, at least as far as television goes.
Find out why below…
Rowland and Destiny’s Child‘s longtime creative director Frank Gatson (En Vogue, Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton) are currently hard at work on a new Reality TV series which sees them hunt for talent to create a brand new supergroup.
Mathew Knowles hit the roof when he heard about the concept for the show, which he thinks is a direct rip-off of an unsuccessful attempt at a similar concept he tried to craft after his superstar daughter gave him the pink slip in 2011.
Mathew’s show aired on Teen Nick because BET, VH1 and MTV passed on carrying the series after his daughter Beyoncé had terminated her working relationship with him and they wanted to stay in her good graces.
The idea that BET would turn around a few years later and launch an almost similar project with Kelly, he sees it as the ultimate betrayal.
Fans will know that Kelly was the first of Destiny’s children to cut Knowles out of her managerial picture and was followed by Michelle Williams and Beyonce who is said to have been told her father had taken far more than his fair share of their earnings by business associates.
Neither party is yet to respond to Mathew’ alleged problem with Rowland’s new show.
