CONFIRMED: Kelly Rowland Has AXED Mathew Knowles!
Jan 28 | by Natasha
TheYBF.com reported LAST MONTH that Kelly Rowland was axing Mathew Knowles as her manager. And despite other folks acting like they were breaking exclusive news saying the same thing this week (as usual), our YBF sources were first...and correct. Kelly Rowland's publicist just issued Black Voices a statement confirming she has indeed parted ways with Papa Knowles. Here's what Kelly says:
Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance - both as a member of Destiny's Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family.Papa Knowles says:
"After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship. My company, Music World, will continue to manage Destiny's Child as a group. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost, and as a dad I only have love for Kelly."While Kelly and co. haven't confirmed who her new manager is, TheYBF.com broke news of the split first in December. And dammit, I'm giving Kelly a pat on the back. 'Bout damn time....
