Scandalicious Update: Papa Knowles & Beyonce & LeToya Luckett

So after the rumors hit this week about PaPa Knowles stirring up trouble at the BET Awards, we decided to ask our own sources about the alleged scandal and wait for some confirmations. Apparently Mathew Knowles told BET that Beyonce would not perform if they insisted on letting former Destiny's Stepchild LeToya Luckett perform as well. We all see whose name is still on the BET Awards moniker, so it's safe to say LeToya lost this one. We asked our own sources at BET about whether any of this is true, and we got a slew of "No comment"'s. Don't know about y'all but I'm taking this as a yes. Damn shame. Here's a copy of the letter sent out: work for XXXXXXXXXXXX. I just want to share something with you because maybe you can help by spreading the word.
Mathew made a threat against BET to remove Beyonce from the BET Awards line-up if LeToya were to perform on that same stage that same night. It is sad to say but I think XXXX will win over LeToya [Luckett]'s management because Beyonce is a garantee to bring the ratings up for the show. In business we have to deal with shady politics but this is going too far. All I want is both girls to perform. Not just want or the other. I've talked about it to some LeToya fans about it and now they started a petition (http://twitition.com/nufi6) . Even if BET wouldn't bend over (which I doubt) he would get Beyonce out there at the last minute. He's just trying to intimidate BET. Anyway now you know, deal with this info the best way you can.Please don't reveal my indentity or where I work at.

It's a nasty game that Mathew Knowles like to play.

Harvey Nichols on left, B's hotel on the right

On another note, Beyonce reportedly had her entire entourage take her 45 feet (directly across from her London hotel) to the Harvey Nichols to shop. They packed up several cars with security and assistants just to go across the street to shop. This wouldn't be news if they were continuing their journey elsewhere. But they went right back tot he hotel afetr the shopping spree. I mean....the street was barricaded and it is hard to walk all the way down the block in 6 inch stilettos. Nevermind...

I used to be a Beyonce fan

I used to be a Beyonce fan but recently...I'm thinking she needs to take a break. That ego song is straight garbage. I can't think highly of someone that has to block another performer from getting their money. Papa Knowles and Beyonce had better watch how they treat people. You know how Karma is....everything that goes up must come back down. Blocking Latoya from performing is stupid. What sense does that make, is Beyonce royalty? I mean her Sasha Fierce album was a complete let down...and that ego song is classless.

People can't differenciate

People can't differenciate between truth and lies especially when someone is as successful as Beyonce. They did this with the Jacksons you see how Michael turned out. They used to say Janet's bleaching her skin, removed a couple ribs, had several different plastic sugery & features. They do it to everyone on top. Yes you can't believe their public personas because we don't know them. But the truth will come out one day and so far every celeb and non celeb that has met her say the same things about her. Mathew on the other hand has never been liked

I try to not believe what I

I try to not believe what I read or hear but the stories I hear regarding her father/manager is crazy. Now why is it he has so much control, and don't he knows, Mr. Knowles what comes around goes around. Why u think only one child is so successful and the another one can't get a break. And remember we don't live forever so I hope he ask God to pray for his cash cow Bey. KARMA not good people! Can't be a surviver if ur doing dishonesty stuff.

It amazes me: I mean people

It amazes me: I mean people expect celebrities to not be normal human beings, you never know WHAT that woman may have been deal with and/or going through, people (not saying you specifically) tend to get so personal and take things to heart…it’s amazing to me…I don’t get it, why get so upset and insulting about someone you claim to not care about and don’t even know? It’s just odd you sound just as dumb as her....if you are going thru something....why be in the club????? She wasnt performing or anything. She could have stayed in the privacy of her hotel room and didnt have to worry about anything.

It's a joke that people keep

It's a joke that people keep saying "she's going to lose fans" and "karma is a bytch" well, seems like she's been doing great thus far, her career hasn't faultered or diminished in ANY way, if anything it just keeps getting better...

she's gonna loose a lot of

she's gonna loose a lot of fans if she dont get rid of him as a mgr. and BET is hella stupid for letting him control their show, so what if Beyonce' don't perform... u think people will not watch because of that.... i seriously doubt it...

I am not a beyonce fan and I

I am not a beyonce fan and I can't stand her family, but all I want to say is when are you b fans gonna stop putting down her dad and blame her as much as u blame him. She is the artist he is the manager/dad, if she really gave two fucks and a damn about n/e one but herself she would step up be human and a friend and say ok enough is enough or ur fired. Artist trumps manager n/e day of the week. b and her family can kick rocks and move to mars. But she is just a responsible as her dad. I mean she is like the only famous person who doesn't have friends and doesn't hang out with n/e one but her fam. Her stans sending me responses in 5...4....3....2.....1

If they had Common outside

If they had Common outside performing a few years ago at the Pre-show what makes you think Le'toya was really supposed to be a part of the show in the first place? Again, context clues. Think about it.
MissGolden's picture

Well...maybe he has issues

Well...maybe he has issues with LeToya singing "She ain't got shit on me" with Beyoncé also on the show... I agree, Beyoncé is a better performer, but you should never mess with someone's money...that shit's foul.

ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS, BEYONCE AND "DEVIL-KNOWLES" REALLY NEED TO ET A GRIP! LET LETOYA LIVE, DAMNIT!! I LIKE HER AND DON'T HATE ON HER BECAUSE SHE IS STILL DOING HER THING AND DIDN'T FALL OFF. BET NEED TO BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES TOO,BECAUSE HOW ARE THEY TRYING TO UPLIFT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, AND THEY ARE KEEPING LETOYA OFF? THEY (BEYONCE AND HER DAMN DADDY)DON'T OWN BET, BUT I GUESS THEY DO. BEYONCE IS GETTING N MY DAMN NERVES ANYWAY!!!

*arte*: I do not think it

*arte*: I do not think it has anything to do with being beyonce being intimidated by letoya, but rather being a big bitch, because she can! yeah she gets way more coverage than letoya so she just putting her “diva” hand down!you know these bey fans ga be like its her money, its her car and her so whatevers to the whole thing, I don’t see why she couldn’t twist her ass cross the street but thats just me.Papa knowles needs to twist his ass and go sat down! FUNNY!!!!!

danette: THANKS FOR POINTING THAT OUT. EVEN ON HER TOUR SHE IS PERFORMING HER OLD SONGS. ITS A DOUBLE STANDARD WHEN IT COME STO THAT CHICK. WE HAVE GREAT SINGERS WHY DOES BEYONCE EVEN NEED TO PERFORM. JAZMINE,FANTASIA,KERI,LETOYA CAN SING. KEYSHIA COLE AND MONICA CAN PERFORM THE HOT SINGLE “TRUST” WHY DOES BET THINK BEYONCE IS THE ONLY FEMALE TALENT THAT IS OUT RIGHT NOW. JUST LIKE EVERYONE FLOCKED TO THIS THREAD BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT BEYONCE BET IS BANKING ON EVERYONE TO BE FLOCKING TO WATCH THE BET AWARDS BECAUSE BEYONCE IS ON THEM PERFORMING.

That family knows DAMN WELL

That family knows DAMN WELL what they are doing and PAPA KNOWLES BEEN doing shady stuff like this (remember when he sent the DC girls to tanning booths so they could look darker and Beyonce could look lighter and stand out more? Disgusting family) I have never given Beyonce a DIME of my money, but I will continue to BOOTLEG her songs cuz they are catchy:-)

i would like to clear that

i would like to clear that ciara is the most hated chick in the game now not beyonce. go on any blog about ciara and beyonce name comes up everytime. we all know that is cause ciara is right behind beyonce. and the bey stans better quit bragging cause next year someone could hit the scene and have success out the ass and a hungrier team.

No offense but who the hell

No offense but who the hell wants to see her perform at the BET Awards? Maybe at the Pre-show but BET wouldn't have her perform at the show. Let's keep it real Letoya has talent but she has a LONG way to go before she's enough of a threat for Matthew to be worried. The reason why Beyonce always stays on top of the rest of these average R&B chicks is because she desires to be more than a video chick with a mediocre voice. No need to hate because her management and team are doing their jobs well. You really think everything is fair in the music biz? This rumor is garbage...

This sounds too true to me.

This sounds too true to me. I'm from houston and it is widely known that the girls were offered a major settlement not to bad mouth Beyonce or Destin'y Child or him...or he would/can sue the hell outta them. I hope they were well compensated for how badly they were treated and kicked out of the group, all because they disagreed with Papa Knowles managing the group. Matthew actually used to give interviews to the local radios stations after the whole breakup thing and say stupid things like (paraphrasing here) "every group has a star and the person that can sing the best" I guess he never heard of Boys II Men or En Vogue. I believe B knoew about it because she has always been controlled by her father, and now that goes control has been passed to her husband. Sasha Fierce and her last album were so overtly hip hop she had to lose a lot of fans. B was not so nasty and tacky as to have songs talking about "My Kitty Kat" and that ish. Fight back Letoya. You are a hometown fav and we want to see you perform!

Again people in here are

Again people in here are arent thinking straight. Did anyone in school learn what a primary or secondary sourc is? If you have forgotten then something is clearly the matter with you and your education. Let's break it down. Primary Source: You hear it straight from someone, not a he, she say document, that we cant even prove was sent by someone real. Anybody could type some words together and put it on their blogs and act like it was a factual letter sent. Ex. Deborah Lee of BET stating "Matthew Knowles kicked Le'toya off the ballot". Did we hear that? NO! Secondary Source: Self explanatory, not a direct source, facts that come from an outside party. ex. Latavia: Letoya told me that Matthew Knowles kicked Beyonce off of the ballot. Do we have that? NO. And even so, secondary sources are always known to be less reliable than a primary source. Some of you need to stop going to the blogs for facts and believing everything you hear. Some people think Wikipedia is a primary source. No. For the media, you need to get up on Broadcasting Cable, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter,Huffington Post, even The Grio. Blogs like this can be fun, but it's seriously ridiculous some of you are reading into sources such as "Destiny's Child Rumours". Its sad.

Is this MF serious right

black: I give the people i like props to. but why does bey get the most hate. if u dont like her dont click oon the link with her name there. simple as that. DUH! true bey wasnt sucessfull back in the day but now she at the top…. call it what u want but its true. and to the haters the truth hurts, i like ciara and rihanna , and keri hilson i like them all but go across the world to japan or europe etc… and who would u buy a cd and i promise Beyonce name will get the most votes….. like i said the person with more sucess get more hate. Have you gone across the world to see who likes who. The first thing you stans say is don't click on the link. Its called freedom. When you pay for my internet service then you have a say. You seem to forget there were others before Beyonce and there are millions of people who don't care for her music. You have the right to like her music and that's fine,but when others criticize her it's hate get a grip. You give Ciara and Keri backhanded comments by saying go across seas and see whose name they say. Keri and Ciara maynot be as rich as Beyonce but guess what they have a fan base. Everybody starts somewhere and just like I said Beyonce had to climb her way to the top. Duh and it took years for her to be what she is now.

You're right, MammaMia. People talk about certain artists being overexposed but they go right to their threads anyways. LOL. How many would go into this thread is Beyonce and the Knowles weren't named? It goes to show you how much these blogs use them to get ratings and they will get it. They are still milking the "split" a decade after the fact. But what can I say? It is entertaining. *Chuckles*

Curtis: ^^^You are right,

Curtis: ^^^You are right, still I wanted to give some balance. It’s funny, someone(Danette) said that if this was anyone else getting negativity, it would be ok by Bey fans and no one would be defending them. I will not speak for them, but I speak for me, I don’t go in threads of entertainers I am not a fan of and two, when that whole Rihanna thing went down with the pics, I was mad at this blog and other blogs for posting the pics. It was wrong. Especially since she didn’t leak them. I am happy when black females shine in the industry and know how hard it is for them to do such even if I am not a fan. I just wish that most of had the same view, if people knew how the industry works, they would be more appreciative of what every artist/entertainer/performer has to go through, especially black female one. Sorry for the long post. I know,you are stating facts but they are blind.i MENTION THIS GIRLS BECAUSE THEY R THE FEW WHO GET PUBLICTY WITH BEY NAME.I CANT MENTION CHRISETTE,AMERIE,ETC
