Mathew Knowles Speaks Out On Accusations He Stole Money From Beyonce: ‘All Dollars Will Be Accounted For’
Beyonce’s former manager and father Mathew Knowles recently came under fire with accusations that he allegedly stole money from his daughter. Things became even more public, when Bey announced she was no longer being managed by him.
Shooting down these claims, Mathew broke his silence to the Associated Press.
“We absolutely have not taken any money from Beyonce, and all dollars will be accounted for,” he told The AP in an interview Thursday afternoon. “In no way have we stole money. Again, this about the people who have made these claims — they have to come into the light.”
“The relationship with Beyonce is extremely amicable. I want to make that clear. Where there’s concern is the people that she’s doing business with,” he said. “I’m challenging all of these folks on integrity, professional integrity.”
Though both Bey and her father claim to be on good terms, Mathew admitted they have not spoken since she relieved him of manager duties. He also accuses certain members of her camp, Roc Nation and Live Nation for the slander and prepared to take the matter to court.
“The only way we will be able to understand this is through a court of law. That’s the only way either one of us will be clear if someone in our camps did something that was not correct.”
Reps for Beyonce and Roc Nation did not respond to requests for comment. Columbia Records and Live Nation had no comment.
