Mathew Knowles Talks Beyonce Firing Him + Elevator Gate
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Beyonce and Solange Knowles’ father Mathew has made the headlines plenty as of late for a number of paternity tests, but he’s not interested in discussing that aspect of his personal life.
Instead, the music industry business man is doing press rounds to promote his new book, “DNA of Achievers,” which dropped in bookstores today.
Mathew stopped by the Breakfast Club to talk about his new business ventures, Beyonce, Jay Z and Destiny’s Child future.
When asked what happened to make Beyonce fire him as her manager, he says:
“I think the same thing with her mother…with her mom…she wanted someone else to style her. With me, she wanted to have someone…someone else to manage her, she wanted to run her own business. We taught our kids, both Solange and Beyonce, entrepreneurship. They grew up in an entrepreneurship household.
“I don’t know about you but I know for sure I don’t want to be around my parents as I got older. So I don’t know why that comes as a surprise to anyone. At 30 years old, you’re a grown a-s woman. Do your stuff yourself. I’m happy that most of her team worked for me and I trained them.”
