*UPDATED* Solange DROPPED From Label? Papa Knowles Backstabs Kelly?!

Well isn't this a juicy way to wrap up a day of gossip.  Sources are reporting that Kelly Rowland isn't the only one of Mathew Knowles kids *snickers* without a label home.  Apparently Solange Knowles was just dropped from her home at Geffen Records as well.  And it happened right around the time the rumors of Kelly being dropped from Columbia first started. The reason why the official statement from Columbia Records came out so quickly about Kelly leaving was not just to confirm the rumors and make the situation and drama  go away.  It was also to deter the attention from Solange as she quietly got dropped from her label as well.  Here's what a source at Geffen told BV:
Geffen did a one-off deal with Music World Entertainment for Solange and wasn't interested in doing a new contract with her. People at the label really liked working with her because other than her infamous news outburst in Las Vegas, she was a constant professional. There were challenges dealing with her camp, but Solange was great to work with. In the end, the CD didn't sell despite Solange's countless high profile appearances.
Womp womp. Honestly, Solo's Hadley Street Dreams album was hot and I still don't know why it sold only 138k units to date. Yet and still, her label isn't trying to keep her there. Her manager and dad Mathew has been shopping Solo to the folks at Epic Records. But get this: That's the exact same place Kelly Rowland has been in talks to go to. Epic's new Prez Amanda Ghost had approached Kelly about joining their label after rumors started Kelly was leaving Music World/Columbia.  It wasn't hard to figure out that once Kelly parted ways with Papa Knowles as manager, the label Papa Knowles is tied to (Columbia) would drop her pretty quickly thereafter.  So Kelly and Epic had been meeting for a long time now and she was close to signing an official deal with them. But that's until Papa Knowles entered the picture. According to BV:
Amanda was really into signing Kelly and then Matthew started meeting with her about Solange. I'm told he used his influence in the Sony system with Beyonce to complicate the existing offer to Kelly and then the deal ultimately didn't happen.
Dropped and backstabbed? With "family" like this...who the hell needs enemies? *UPDATED* Mathew Knowles' rep sent out the following statement:
"Our joint venture with Music World and Interscope/Geffen/A&M is very much in placed for Solange. We are currently experiencing success at video outlets and radio with the current single T.O.N.Y co-written by Ceelo of Knarls Barkly and Solange. Ceelo and Kid Cudi also appear in the video. It's very disappointing in recent days the amount of false statements in the marketplace from Solange being drop to me accused of being Kelly Rowland's father."

However, Black Voices says they still stand by their statement that Geffen is not interested in giving Solo a second album. Womp.

Her music in incredible and

Her music in incredible and this CD was a monolithic improvement over her first CD. I am disappointed to read this article. Part of the reason why she didn't sell as well MAY have to do with the fact that she is pulling all these "stunts." Either way, I would buy her CD because her music is great, but she will have to act a little better in the public eye. Perhaps she changes so that she can make more music. It sounds like business and stardom is driving her family apart. It sounds like money is really the root of all evil. This is truly a shame.

It's amazing how much hatred

It's amazing how much hatred and envy people can have in their hearts for someone they've never even met...how could a story that had NOTHING to do with Beyonce turn into such a hate-filled and just downtight ugly thing? What is wrong with people? Why does everyone take everything so damn personal? This is a GOSSIP site! How is it that people can believe everything they read? NO ONE on this site knows any of these people personally and from the comments you would really think that people family members are being attacked...WOW...it takes way too much energy to have that much envy and hatred in your heart and soul...it really does. I will pray for y'all b/c y'all definitely need it!

i dnt knw if 2 feel sorry 4

i dnt knw if 2 feel sorry 4 kelly, she was foolish 4 stayin aftr letoya and latavia left. Beyonce and her papa knowles obviously made use of all da ex-dc girls. dey were scared of the rejection beyonce could face if she started out as a solo artist. Solange shuld knw dat fame is nt 4 evryone. But i like dt she doesnt use sex appeal and beauty 2 sell music, cos dts clearly wot beyonce does. But girl needs somethng 2 hold on to,lyk dat she doesnt want 2 be in beyonce's shadow. Dont think kelly can really sing,shes just ok. Beyonce can sing,but she forcefully wants to be an icon. icons dnt sell body.

final comment *thinking to

final comment *thinking to myself I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes of my life reading these comments* most of the talented artists in the music industry (most not all) do not get the airplay- tv or radio- that is deserving of real, raw, authentic, non-gimmicky music. Authenticity is lacking in the world in general, and it materializes in many places especially in the music industry. B's last album (forgot the name) was so gimmicky and oozing with teenybopper-ness(and not real music) that everytime any of her songs came on the radio (with the exception of single ladies cuz you cannot help BUT rock to that song) I changed the station. Diva is just retarded!!!!Like for real. I looooooooooooved her first solo album!!! Although still a very mainstream project, it was some creativity & singing on that joint! She's moved away from that. and B is only a microcosm of where music is in 2009. Listening to the radio in general sometimes is sickening. The lack of substance, the SEX, the obsession with money.....not a good look for our younguns who think this is what music is supposed to be. I listen to old CD's and have begun rummaging (sp) through my granny-in-law's album collection, thirsty for artists who have made music from the soul. peace

great point....but I wonder

great point....but I wonder if there are any "principles" in this industry...doesn't seem like alot of principles floating around.....just good ol American capitalistic values. Kelly -----I pray for your continued diligence and success in living your dreams...... Just Me 808: I get what ur saying but business or not somethings you just dont do… its just the principle.
hustleurpassion's picture

And when I say they, I mean

And when I say they, I mean Columbia and Kelly not Mathew and Kelly. If you remember the statement that both Mathew and Kelly said that Kelly would be on Musicworld. So it is possible that KELLY had a change of heart and wanted to leave so she could do other things and maybe Columbia bought her contract out giving her nice money so she could leave. I am just speaking conjecture. I am not saying that I am right and making it seem fact. Not everyone wants to be a part of the record industry and be famous like Beyonce. It's takes a lot of sacrifice and dealing industry crap to survive. Maybe Kelly had enough and I can understand it.

I can't believe y'all are

I can't believe y'all are this gullible. Golden, great post. And whoever said that Columbia and Epic are the same label is on point. Thank you for posting facts. As well as the fact that Solange will be running Musicworld. I know it is thing on the Net to hate on the Knowles but let me drops some logic on here. There is only but so much matthew can do. His label is a Sub-level under Sony/Columbia/Epic. He also partnered with Geffen for Solange's sake but pretty much, if Columbia wanted Kelly, even if Matt didn't want her to get a deal, there is nothing he could do. They broke up for whatever reason. So let this go and stop making the Knowles into Satan's generals.

Great post@Golden and whoever

Great post@Golden and whoever said that Epic and Columbia are the same label, great job. And also for posting that Solo will be running MusicWorld one day. Post those facts!!!! That's how gullible the people on this board are. You will believe gossip, no matter how big a lie it is. Another thing, Musicworld is only a sub-label under Sony/Columbia/Epic so if Matthew didn't want to see her on Columbia, if Columbia wanted her, he could do nothing because he has bosses. Let me say that again, he has bosses over him being a label-head. There is only so much he could do even if he wanted to.

Solange should have never

Solange should have never gotten the L'Oreal commercial over Kelly and Michelle. Both of them were in Destiny's Child and sold more albums individually than Solange but because she's Beyonce's sister, Beyonce and Papa Knowles hook her up with L'Oreal. It's a slap in the face to both Kelly and Michelle. Solange's latest cd ain't even sold as much 100,000 copies even with Papa Knowles buying 90-95% of the Solange's cds.

I like Solange's last CD. IT

I like Solange's last CD. IT was HOT to me. The reason it might not have so so well is because the whole freaking CD was on the internet for free. Well... I love her style. I will take her over her sister any day. Solange in my opinion is for the older folks. And in my opinion again she will never sell as many CD's because she is doesn't do booty popping music for the young folks. BUT to me that is all good. Solange, I am waiting for your next CD to come out so PLEASE get busy.

I don't buy this being

I don't buy this being dropped story for a seond. Solange already said herself this wasn't true. Natasha will you be reporting on Solange's new ad campaign with some other young celebs for the Op collection which is available exclusively at Wal-Mart? The print ads are pretty cute. MADE IN MALIBU: It was just last year when Op relaunched exclusively at Wal-Mart with a star-studded ad campaign featuring Rumer Willis, Kristin Cavallari, Christina Milian, Josie Maran, Pete Wentz, Corbin Bleu and Wilmer Valderrama. This season, the Iconix Brand Group-owned junior and young men’s brand has sparked a new lineup of fresh faces for what the company calls the “Summer of Music” spring campaign. The new ads feature AnnaLynne McCord, Sophia Bush, Solange Knowles, Joel Madden, Brody Jenner, Cody Linley and Bow Wow in what was quite the production to shoot. In order to get the cast into summer concert mode, the company produced a live Good Charlotte concert on Westward Beach in Malibu, Calif., as a backdrop for the shoot. The result is a bunch of images capturing the Op cast of celebrities enjoying their time at the concert, riding bikes and skateboarding at the beach. “We had this great product that was supported by a really big marketing push, which proved to be really successful for the brand and for Wal-Mart,” said Dari Marder, chief marketing officer at Iconix. “Everything we do on the marketing end is done in order to translate into sales, and we really saw that happen with the relaunch of Op. This season is all about getting a new, diverse group of stars in order to anniversary the success of the launch.” The ads will launch this month in issues of fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazines, as well as on billboards and on op.com. — Julee Kaplan

Also a nother side note to

Also a nother side note to those sick enough to even think about "satan worshipping in this post".... how about you stop worshipping Beyonce so that she won't be at the top of every post that has nothing to do with her. Stop thinking Matthew Knowles has God like power in the industry and has total control of Kelly and Solange, because he doesn't. AT the end of the day, if you didn't buy either or their records STFU, and move on. Instead of obsessing about Beyonce and her family who has nothing to do with this LIE OF A STORY. At the end of the day, some of the haters, give Beyonce so much credit and power. She's just talented, has millions of fans, puts out great music and sells. She does not pull strings and clouds over people's head, and can't control other people's destiny (no pun intended) like she is of a higher power like people make her to be. She's human. And don't you know you're contradicting yourself, by blaming Matthew for Solange not selling. If it was only Matthew that got Beyonce to sell, ummmmm wouldn't Solange be selling millions of records? Think about it. The more you pay attention to Beyonce, the less focus you have in putting your energy to actually supporting Kelly and Michelle.
MissGolden's picture

Some of you are so

Some of you are so foolish. Solange already established that she is NOT DROPPED FROM HER LABEL. So this story is a LIE. This story is FALSE. So you typing up term papers on why you hate Beyonce will not go well. It's obvious the people calling Beyonce fans "worshippers" are clearly the worshippers themselves. Out of everybody to talk about, Solange (hoping she sells and gets a label), you spend the ENTIRE POST talking about Beyonce. It's clear her fans don't worship her, the haters do ten times over, because in the midst of another post, she's all you can think about to blame.
MissGolden's picture

Solange's music is lame and

Solange's music is lame and boring. She wants to position herself as the younger India.re but failed miserably. The only way she could've be successful was to go on stage without wearing any underwear and open her legs. That's one of the reasons her sister was successful.

dr: What is Mathew supposed

dr: What is Mathew supposed to do? Kelly dismissed his services. He has NO obligation to her career anymore. She is competition and he gotta work for his artists. Ya’ll think Alicia Keys manager is saying, well let Beyonce have this one. NOPE!! I don’t know why folks try to single out Mathew like he is the only manager who acts like this. They all do. Kelly was a fool ’cause if she knew she was gonna get dropped after leaving Mathew then she should’ve had the next job lined up and on lock. STFU with that. The difference between kelly rowland and alicia keys swetheart is that alicia keys wasnt apart of DC nor was she told by the knowles that she was family. They have been knowing each other for damn near there whole lives. And how would she know that they would F all over her like that anyway for her to seek different management. She probably thought they wouldnt do what they did to Latavia, Letoya and Farrah to her. Thats why she is in the sh*& hole she is in now.

I'm sure Latavia, LeToya,

I'm sure Latavia, LeToya, Kelly & Solange is probably cracking up at all the comments! Solange will be ok, regardless of whether she's dropped from the label or not.

B: SHERRY—YOU ARE SO

B: SHERRY—YOU ARE SO brainwashed. Beyonce said Letoya was tone deaf and had to pay a lawsuit as a COURT OF LAW found that the survivor lyrics wre directed at L aand L and they were unkind. You all have become DEVILS as well, as GOD is TRUTH, the DEVIL is a LIE, so if you are LYING you are PRAISING SATAN….Beyonce HAS talked about others–THIS IS THE TRUTH…YOU ARE BEING A DEVIL BY LYING—is she really worth your SOUL? Get your facts straight. Letoya and Latavia took them to court to TRY to sue them for the survivor lyrics but they LOST. The judge stated that the lyrics COULD be directed at them but they couldnt prove it. The Knowles stated that Survivor was an inspirational song and the judge sided with the Knowles. EVERYONE knows that. Check your facts before you spread gossip.

Because regardless of being Beyonce's manager, if she were really part of the family-he would have some type of loyalty. I really just think its all about money in that family...its sad and disgusting...

If anything, Matthew Knowles probaby kept Kelly on Columbia long after they wanted her. Kelly isn't that viable as a solo artist...why would you think so when none of y'all bought her record!Kelly wil NEVER be on J. They only sign vocalists. If she was, she'd have to get by Jennifer Hudson, Jazmine Sullivan and Alicia Keys...that'd be a mistake. Some of y'all just don't know how the game works. Yes, it's hella grimy...but that's what it is. The true talent, most of the time rises to the top which is why Ashanti, Cassie, and all the rest have expiration dates and the Marys, Alicias and Beyonces will still be here 10 years from now.

As tantalizing as it would be

As tantalizing as it would be for Kelly (Kelandra) to write a tell all book, it wouldn't be classy. You block your blessings that way. And if she were to join forces with the other members who were kicked out of DC, they would seem bitter. The classiest way is for her to just move on. Be cordial to the Knowles including Beyonce...but keep it to that and nothing deeper. Hire a BANGING manager who truly has her best interest at heart, move forward and to not speak of the experience with the Knowles. Kelly needs to figure out what she wants out the business, then her and her new and improved revamped team need to figure out a game plan to make that happen. Surround herself with friends and a team who truly have her interest at heart and truly want to see her succeed. Whatever is done in the dark eventually comes to light. Matthew is like a republican who does bad all by himself. He is doing more harm than good for his business and brand. Do I believe Matthew is a dirty unscrupulous manager? Absolutely. And it never ends good for this type of person. Didn’t he sexually harass one of Beyonce’s dancers a few years back? Didn’t he spend millions of DC’s money on coke and prostitutes? I believe the old DC members sued him and won on this claim…but the amount was undisclosed and they were never to speak of it again. I don’t think we’ve seen the bottom yet with this dude.

How is ANY of this Beyonce's

How is ANY of this Beyonce's fault? Kelly should have parted ways when DC split up anyways, gave herself a fresh start and a new sound, she relied too much on being "DC member" Kelly Rowland and not creating something seperate. There are a ton of hot producers/other singers that could have helped her.
Artemis's picture

Kelly is not Matthew's

Kelly is not Matthew's daughter. How many times does she have to say that? He has been a father to her because he adopted her so they could sign papers on her behalf. No father would ask you to deny him in public, while parenting you in the background. That just doesn't make any sense. Getting dropped from Columbia doesn't signify the end of Kelly's career any more than it suggests the end of anybody career when they get fired or laid off from one job. Anybody who says so is not a believer. I think people just like dealing in mess and negativity. Kelly will be just fine.

At least we know where his true interest lies and he hasn't truly f*cked too many folks over (just a small city).

Dear

Dear Sincerely,FUCKTheKnowles!!!: You are so filled with hate! In the amount of time it took you to type up that self-loathing, pitiful, hateful monologue, you could have done something constructive with your time, instead of trying to bring Beyonce down to your level. Well, guess what? It will never happen. She is a DIVA with more money in the bank than u can imagine, she is young, has a successful marriage of the greatest hip hop icons, she is talented, beautiful and has a family that supports and loves her, not mention MILLIONS of fans worldwide. So, while you were hating, she is on her world tour. You can never bring her down to your level. You can do so much more with love, than with hate. Try it, because obviously, hate has not gotten you very far in life. Good luck...
