Beyonce's Dad Calls the Elevator Incident a Ticket Selling Stunt

Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles is claiming that his daughter’s incident in an elevator with hubby Jay Z and sister Solange Knowles was a “Jedi mind trick” to sell tour tickets.

The comment came when the music manager made an appearance on Houston’s Roula and Ryan Show.

“[They needed something to] ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. A Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of the time. [Snaps fingers] All I know is everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up, Solange‘s album sales went up 200 percent…” Mathew said.

Later in the clip, Mathew makes sure to remind us that he’s still the manager of Destiny’s Child, even though he is no longer Beyonce‘s manager. He even hints that a new album and reunion tour could be happening soon.

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.”
