Beyonce's Dad Made Comments About Chloe Bailey That Are Really Upsetting to See

Fans are shocked by the way Beyonce‘s dad Mathew Knowles spoke about his daughter’s protégé Chloe Bailey in a new interview.

The former manager of Destiny’s Child spoke on the Leah’s Lemonade radio show this week and responded to people who are comparing Chloe to a younger Beyonce. For those that don’t know, the sister duo Chloe x Halle is signed to Beyonce‘s Parkwood management company and it’s known that she has helped guide their careers.

“Do you see the comparison? Like the same thing that you saw in young Beyonce, do you see that in Chloe Bailey?” host Leah A. Henry asked.

Mathew responded, “You’ve got to be kidding me, right? You’re asking me that question? Are you actually serious that you are comparing that young lady to Beyonce?”

Leah then said that fans think that Chloe could play Beyonce if a movie were to be made about the singer’s life.

Mathew replied, “Okay, you’re talking about if somebody was doing a movie, not talent-wise. Talent-wise? Are you telling me talent-wise, somebody is an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise?”

“They say she’s literally like a young Beyonce in the making,” Leah responded. Mathew then said, “I’m asking you a yes or no question. Are you telling me someone’s an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise? Are there people saying her talent is equal to Beyonce? They’re an idiot. Period.”

Mathew still wasn’t done and said, “That’s actually insulting to Beyonce. I mean, if you want to call out some like Barbra Streisand or you know, some people like that, like come on, man, really?… I want to get off this topic.”

While it’s undeniable that few people have the same talent level as Beyonce, it’s upsetting to see how dismissive Mathew was of a talented person like Chloe, who has his daughter’s full support.
