Mathew Knowles Says He & Beyonce No Longer Speak After Theft Allegations & Firing, Says Roc Nation Is Too Involved

Mathew Knowles is officially speaking out about the theft allegations that he says have caused a severe rift between he and his superstar daughter Beyonce

Get the deets on why Pappy Knowles says industry folks (namely Jay-Z's company Roc Nation) have driven a wedge between he and his first born inside...

 

While a brand new pic of Beyonce in the studio working on Watch The Throne with her hubby Jay and Kanye just surfaced (above), Mathew Knowles is talking about his split with his eldest daughter.

Pops originally made it seem as though Beyonce firing him as manager was part of a larger business strategy on both their parts.  But now, more details are leaking about the shakeup in the Beyonce brand, which Mat says has caused he and Bey to stop speaking. 

Mathew recently filed papers in a Texas court alleging that members of Beyonce's camp, which includes Columbia Records, Live Nation and Roc Nation, have made "negative comments about [him]."

"We absolutely have not taken any money from Beyonce, and all dollars will be accounted for," he told The Associated Press. "In no way have we stole money. Again, this about the people who have made these claims — they have to come into the light."

Mathew says the culprits (Live Nation--who her hubby inked a serious multi-year deal with himself) convinced Beyonce to hire a law firm to audit her finances so they could drive and wedge between him and his daughter and take over her career.

He said Beyonce's current team is a hybrid of her old team and Roc nation's people.  And Live Nation and Roc Nation have the most to gain from taking over her career. He also mentioned that since Beyonce has changed management, her new album has not produced any breakout singles, although it is selling well.  He hints that maybe she is proving the power of radio is not needed to sell a record when you actually have talent.

He stressed to the AP, the reason for his lawsuit is to restore his professional integrity.

Beyonce's relationship with her dad has worsend through the years.... just imagine having to try and be a kid, have a normal life & childhood in which Beyonce always speaks about NOT having, being iin a group having to pretend to be happy ALL the time, while watching your father cheat on your mother and do drugs, control the money & members in the group.. Mathew didnt care about nobody but himself.. He used beyonce's god given talent to HIS advantage.. hurting lots of people in the process.... yea sure he made the group famous.. but what was REALLY going on In the Knowles household...

I think we just may be over

I think we just may be over looking a key player here. Tina Knowles. The bitter wife, I'm pretty sure her hand is some where in this huge mess. As far as Bey and her dad, it's three sides to every story, bey's, May's and the truth. So I won't give such a personal opinion on all that. But whatever shady dealings that were done in the dark will soon surface, I'm not a Stan, but I like Bey. Justice always prevails in the end. EVERYONE HAVE A POSITIVE NEW YEAR!

Beyonce & her Mama ought to

Beyonce & her Mama ought to be ASHAMED! Because if it was'nt for her Father it would'nt be no Money to STEAL!!! He made her what she is! She's another Michale Jackson, doing the same thing to her Father that MJ did to Joe Jackson! If Joe had still been in Michale's Life he'd probably be alive today! I hope Jay Z always stay with her! I personally feel she puts entirely to much Praise on Jay Z & that Baby! I hope she don't live to regret it!!!

J-Z is simply using B and

J-Z is simply using B and she's too foolish to see it. It wouldn't surprise me if she gets strung out like Bobby strung Whitney out. J is simply cashing in and using her until she's finished and has nothing left. J is demonic and is possibly a part of the Illuminatis. Why would you marry a drug dealer let alone marry one. J needs to be careful because when you sel drugs to other peoples' children, someone may very well sell drugs to your child.

I SMELL A RAT WITH JAYZ, i

I SMELL A RAT WITH JAYZ, i like what one of the commentors said about jayz cashin in on beyonce, after his career was dead, when tupac and biggie was rapping nobody even talked about jayz he was like nas, a know rapper but not talked about much... when he help make crazy in love plummet to the top of charts, his name got synonomus with beyonce name... and he started to get in her mind, he knew once he made her fall for him he could do a lot, but mess with mathew WHO HATED HIM FROM DAY ONE WAS NOT ONE OF HIS MOVES, NOW SINCE THE KNOWLES FAMILY HAVE ISSUES OF INFIDELITY, AND ACCUSATIONS OF THIEFT, IN WHICH JAYZ STARTED, HE KICKS THE DOG WHILE HES DOWN (MATHEW) yes mathew had a child outt of wed lock , but he was not still living with tina when the girl got pregnant... he was headed for divorce...something men do all the time.... shack up before the papers are finished SOOOO WHAT.. this does not hide the fact that he has been in bey corner since she started and is the reason she made it this far,, he was manipulative and pushy and shady sometimes, but so is LA REED, AND TOMMY MATOLA, he is a good business man, he is not the cause of destiny child breaking up either, it was just time for a change in venue... mathew knew beyonce had it, his mistake was , arranging that girls group in the beganning he could have just focused on beyonce and still made it happen. he thought it was a good public relation move back in the early 80,s girl groups were hugh.. he changed positions on her career directions and people act like he robbed a freakin bank!!! leave him a lone, he is still her father, jay z will not last, that marriage was a shame, built on greed, and a weak countrygirl, trying to secure popularity, even mathew may have saw jayz as a asset to beys career, and cross over to hip hop audience, it worked on that first 2 albums, BUT THE PROBLEM CAME WHEN BEYONCE, FEEL IN LOVE WITH JAYZ,, she liked his artistry but not him, and being so nieve she mixxed up the two, and got a cold shouldered love who cause of image thought he was to cool to hold hands or kiss her in public... no he changed that when the public was outraged, with it... but does that mean a zebra lost his strippes FOLKS ?? WAKE THE HELL UP.. THIS MAN IS A THUGG. raised with a street hustle mantality, of get the money and shoot who ever is in the house.... leave no proof of good.... he maybe doing what anyone could have done with a weak mind like beyonce... laying down good sex cleaver street talk, and promises of security lol... simple as 123, u be surprised whats going on behind close doors... look at what anna nicole was able to do with a smart old business tycoon, who was old not dumb.... sex sex sex sex, games, camoflauge to look like I LOVE YOU BEYONCE, MEANWHILE ALL THOSE CASH COWS OF JAYZS will be riding beyonce dirty drawers, til they cant ride no more... we will just see how in love he is if bey decides to dropp this whole issues against her dad??? the POLES ARE OPEN NOW? CAST YOUR VOTE... WILL JAYZ SEAL HIS OWN COFFIN, AND END UP IN THE POOR HOUSE TRYING TO PULL THIS FAMILY APPART? OR WILL BEYONCE RESOLVE HERSELF IN FRONT OF HER CHURCH AND HOUSTON TO BEING A COLD BLOOD GIRL FROM TEXAS WHO, DIDNT APPRECIATE HER FATHERS SACRAFICES. NObody proved mathew done anything yet?? right?? dont think jayz aint planning his stratigies carefully, since the news IS OUT, HE STARTED THIS SH***T SO HE MIGHT AS WELL HANG TIGHT TO THAT COW....

I am not saying she should

I am not saying she should not speak to her father, but you should choose to align yourself with your husband over your father, especially if daddy is shady.
Anonymous's picture

The thing that really hit me

The thing that really hit me in this article is that she and her dad are no longer speaking. That's a shame and both of these adults need to work this stuff out, say your sorry's, admit your faults, whatever but to not even be talking???? That has to be a personal strain on them both and on their family members. I'm sure Mathew has his faults both personally and professionally but without a doubt he helped get her where she is so she could stand to be a little more forgiving even if he did start to slack off in the end. Without him, the 'Beyonce brand' would have had no beginning I don't care how many wack clothes her mom sewed for her it was her father that pushed this. Lastly, Bey needs to remember that at the end of the day Jay-Z is a man with pimp and hustler mentalities and not put it past him to have done some underhanded things to make her dad look bad so he could pull Bey a little closer to his control.

Karma, karma, karma! You

Karma, karma, karma! You can't treat people like crap and think it's not going to come back to you. Whether he stole money or not he hasn't been treating anyone right BUT Beyonce. I don't think he gave his own daughter Solange, who is naturally talented, a fair shake. It's hard for me to believe that he knew or did anything to take money because outside of his salary its still his daughter and he should be set. YET, i do believe he was so busy screwing the world that it could have been his business partner. Matthew just doesn't want to admit because its going to make him look he wasn't doing his job and didn't protect his daughter. So, he blames her new affiliates which probably is what REALLY put a wedge between him and her because he pretty much is acting as if her husband is causing friction. That will not sit well with anyone. Audits are done by outsiders who have no interest and are normally done by more than one company. So what would this independent company who gets a set fee, have to gain to lie about numbers that don't lie?! I don't she fired him so much because he was stealing more because he wasnt paying attention! Matthew has too much pride to admit it and he is making his relation worse with his daughter by coming public! Smh

Matthew Knowles cheating on

Matthew Knowles cheating on his wife has nothing to do with how he handled Beyonce's career. Before B even became a star, Tina and Matthew separated and got back together so there was trouble way before this. And I'm sure that was not the first time he cheated. That said, what he did extra maritally has nothing to do with how he single handedly made Beyonce a superstar. Nothing affected his shrewdness as a business man.

I beleive Beyonce has a big heart, and wished things could be different between her and her father. He simply reached a point of no return with her. He had already dooked her mother. The realization that her dad was stealing from had to be hurtful. There are two sides to every story. I retrieve my preconcieved notion that she was wrong for firing her father. Mr. Knowles alledgely has a booger sugar problem, addiction will bring the worse out of good people. He left her no choice. It's no telling how long or how much he had stolen from her. It's a shame when you can't trust your family.. I love and respect Beyonce and hope that her family can recover from this..

IT MUST BE TRULY HURTFUL TO

IT MUST BE TRULY HURTFUL TO HAVE ANOTHER MAN COME IN AND PIMP YOUR DAUGHTER OUT LIKE A COMMON HOE WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN THE ONE WHO HAS DONE ALL THE WORK. BEYONCE CHANGED WHEN SHE MET JAY Z AND HE IS ONLY AN OPPORTUNIST. SHE IS NOTHING LIKE SHE WAS BEFORE BECAUSE OF HIS INFLUENCE. ITS LIKE A PIMP AND HIS HOE WHEN I SEE THEM. NOW HE HAS CONVINCED HER TO KICK HER FATHER TO THE SIDE SO HE CAN HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL. NEXT THERE WILL BE DRUGS, THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS. THEY ISOLATE YOU FROM YOUR FAMILY IN ORDER TO CONTROL YOU. BEYONCE ALREADY ACTS LIKE A ROBOT, NOTHING LIKE SHE USED TO BE. MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING, AND YOU SHOULD NOT SELL YOUR SOUL TO GET IT. LOYALTY TO FAMILY IS WORTH A HELL OF A LOT. BUT SHE WILL FIND THIS OUT VERY QUICKLY. HER CAREER IS GOING TO TAKE A DIVE. SOME THINGS PEOPLE HAVE TO SEE FOR THEMSELVES. THE POSTER WAS RIGHT, HE DID EVERYTHING FOR THIS SELFISH, SELF CENTERED FEMALE AND SHE GAVE HIM HER AZZ TO KISS BECAUSE JAY Z TOLD HER THAT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. STUPID. SHE DESERVES EVERYTHING SHE GETS.

If she is a 'selfish,

If she is a 'selfish, self-centered female' he made her that way. You can't raise a child to think they are better than everyone in the whole wide world, which he did by favoring her extremely over other DC members and probably over her own sister, and not think eventually she won't think she's better than you too. If it was a monetary mistake Mathew made she should have let him learn from it, not fired him after all these years. Which makes me think it was no mistake and the money was being taken from her purposely. I do wish he success in managing herself though since so many people are saying she can't do it, but I hope she's not just saying she's managing herself and it's really going to be Jay-Z. NO ONE wants Beyonce to become the next Whitney Houston but there are many similarities, hit as a teenager, on top for years, family-managed, spoiled diva that hit big, met a man and eventually, well in her 30's, fell apart.

Folks keep saying Matthew

Folks keep saying Matthew stole from her, but I am wondering what amount of money he could have stolen when Beyonce is worth 300 million, if not more. This a'int no bloody Gary Coleman situation. This woman has money to last her 3 lifetimes over. Most of us will work until we're gray and not see anything close to that amount of money. Even if Matthew skimmed a lil cream from the pot I can't see how it hurt her financially. Ethically it's wrong if he did take money, but when was Matthew Knowles known for his ethics. She should be lucky he was the shark he was for her or she would not have known a fraction of the success she achieved in such a short time span. I believe him that there was indeed some conspiracy to get him out the picture.

It doesnt matter how much if

It doesnt matter how much if he stole it. She paid him what he earned as her manager. He could have gotten almost anything he wanted without stealing. It's never OK to steal and it is 100X worse to steal from your own child.

No offense, but this is a man

No offense, but this is a man who had a secret love child, sexually harassed her back up dancers, screwed over Letoya, Latavia and Kelly royally, gambling debts, etc. An audit shows he stole money. It's not like Jay Z took her aside and said your daddy is a thief. An audit showed he did it. Beyonce don't owe him $$$$t!!! And half these people on here preaching are full of it. If it was a shoe on their foot, they'd have vaseline on their face and a baseball bat waiting to beat daddy's a$$ for taking millions of dollars. But Bey is supposed to ctfu and take it??? Get the f*** outta here!!

If Matthew Knowles screwed

If Matthew Knowles screwed over LaToya and Latavia for Beyounce's benefit she sure wasn't screaming from the rooftops that daddy was wrong for doing so. As long as she benefits than I guess his snake likes ways are okay. But a snake is a snake and you should expect that it is going to bite you to.

Yeah, but WHO conducted the

Yeah, but WHO conducted the audit? Was it an independent, neutral law firm or was it a law firm connected to Live Nation/Roc Nation/Columbia Records? If it was a firm connected to these companies, of course they are going to find some issues. They are trying to eliminate Mathew out of the picture so that they can have a bigger cut of her money. A blind man can see that. Mathew might be an ass, but he made sure his daughter got paid and milked every deal he could get his hands on for her.
