Matthew Knowles On Beyoncé: ‘Let’s Be Clear… We Both Let Each Other Go’

Matthew Knowles discusses the painful decision to end management of daughter Beyonce.


As previously reported, Beyoncé made it very clear that all wasn’t well between she and her father in the candid documentary titled “Life Is But a Dream.” The superstar said she made the challenging decision to end her business relationship with her father because she wanted him to be a father as opposed to a business partner. When the interview asked Beyoncé did her plan work, she relied “No,” and continued to say it has been very hard to cope with the loss of her father as a parent.

For the first time since the release of the documentary, Beyoncé’s estranged father Matthew Knowles is speaking out and setting a few things straight in an exclusive interview with The Sun. After being blasted in the media for having an illegitimate child with a younger woman, the man has continued to run his management company, focusing primarily on gospel records.  Read the interview below:

On splitting from daughter:

It was hard for me to let her go — it was hard for both of us to let each other go. And let’s be clear on that. She didn’t let me go, we both let each other go. That’s a big difference.

On where their relationship stands today:

This was not a normal ending of a business agreement. This was a dad and a daughter and it was incredibly painful and it had some difficulties.  Normally I hate to talk about anything personal, but it would be a lie if I did not say it has been difficult.

On moving forward:

…I try to always have a positive mind about things and you got to do it the right way.

On Blue Ivy Carter:

The beauty of being a grandad is you can always give them back. You get to do all the fun stuff and not the harder things.

Do you believe they will reconcile?
