Rumors hit the internet recently that Beyonce joined her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in firing her father, Mathew Knowles, as her manager. In his place, it was rumored, Beyonce would allow her business savvy rapper/mogul husband, Jay-Z, to guide her approaching-legendary career.
File this under big fat rumor, this according to Mr. Knowles’ Music World Entertainment. In a statement, the label puts the kibosh of the false info, saying, “Contrary to false rumors online, Beyoncé and her manager Mathew Knowles unequivocally have had and continue to have a close personal and business relationship. Mathew Knowles is the sole and exclusive manager of Beyoncé.”
The rumors kicked up just as news that Beyonce was heading back into the studio to get to work on her fourth studio album. She’s spending time this week with singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, who penned her Grammy-winning hit “Irreplaceable.”
