Should Beyonce Fire Her Dad?

Should Beyonce Fire Her Dad?

Beyonce reportedly hasn’t been talking to her dad and manager, Mathew Knowles and for good reason.

He had an 18-month affair with actress Alexsandra Wright and fathered son, Nixon, while still married to Beyonce‘s mother, Tina Knowles.

One music industry insider tells NY Post, “Beyonce was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mom. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mom, so this has hit her really hard. She is refusing to speak to him, which is making things difficult where it comes to managing her career. Some people at Columbia now think it would be better to move him aside.”

DO YOU THINK Beyonce should fire her dad or keep him?

    Um…who cares?

  • KellStar

    Um…why would we know more about this situation than Beyonce herself? She doesn’t need our advice.

  • Halli

    This is really a personal and professional decision. Really sucks that their father betrayed their family in such a way. Nixon’s kind of a cool name though.

  • well

    there are so many other celebs who aren’t talking to their parents, So what? That’s par for the course in America. That is their situation. The public does not need to know about all this.

  • Athina

    It’s a personal matter. Why do we have to know all the gory details?

  • ginagina

    That’s personal… but whatever she does, I hope it gets her into another phase of her life. A mature one. She comes off as so rehearsed, stiff and naive sometimes.

    its not personal anymore her father is a homewrecker and so is the sl*t he f*cked

    and yes she should “fire” him—-its negatively affecting her career and personal life and if they truly are not speaking it WOULD BE best to part ways PROFESSIONALLY at least for now.. so maybe firing is harsh, but temporarily until they work things out as father daughter first, then yes.

  • pup

    Is that even her biological dad? They look NOTHING alike. O.O

  • cat

    He created her she is who she is!…not once but twice…she wouldn’t be where she is right now if it weren’t for her dad…

  • Minnie

    @pup: Yes, that’s her biological father. She just took up after her mother, Tina.

  • KiKi

    Yes, she should fire him because he’s too much of a control freak and crazy stage dad.

  • mari

    All things of the cheating apart, because that is really personal. But what good use is a manager you refuse to talk to. She should just make up her mind to either talk to him about business at least or fire him. This cannot be good for her career.

  • me

    hopefully he’ll find the humility to convey that he understands the depth to which he hurt her, if i was in her situation thats what i’d be holding out for – some sign of acknowledgement

  • Tomorrow

    She’s cool. I love her style. Did you see her hot pics? I did. It’s on ‘ric h kiss . c om’. She put them on her nice profile there. Is she looking for date, friends there?

  • Hawlygood

    Of course she should fire him! Why should she have to tolerate a weak and unstable, immoral person pretending to be a stand-up father!

  • Hawlygood

    @cat: yes! her amazing talent and hardwork didn’t count for nothing…it was all her father’s doing!

  • http://h Kaz

    I hate beyonce becuze she always shouting

  • cee

    I agree who cares?

    But still, not surprised this p!mp daddy is having an affair, since he’s the one wh@ring his own daughter for fame.

  • In The Know

    Matt Knowles is DIRECTLY responsible for Beyonce being able to crawl around on the floor at the Grammy Awards.

    He had a very good job in corporate America and spent a fortune to get his daughter to where she is financially before any label ever saw them.

    Beyonce is so overrated it hurts. She is all smoke mirrors and photo approval. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN….Matt Knowles!!!!!!! PS….there’s still a Columbia Records??? …..Didn’t know that?

  • me

    @In The Know …so what if her dad got her to where she is today…she’s not disputing that. the fact is…he did something to hurt not only her and her mother but the whole family. is she supposed to have a manager she no longer trusts or respects?

    fyi…if he didnt have such talent to work with in the first…he wouldn’t be rolling around in the millions now would he? he did it as much for himself as for his daughter!

  • Sophie

    That’s really sad actually. I feel bad for Beyonce, must be difficult to handle.

  • MEW

    She should shut up and sing!

  • So Sorry

    That is not a Good feeling to know ur Dad stepped out on ur MOM!
