Movies & TV

Not cool, dad. Not. Cool.

According to Idolator Beyonce’s dad and former Destiny’s Child manager Matthew Knowles alleges the elevator fight that took place at the Met Gala this past May was staged to help boost ticket sales for The Carters”On The Run Tour.”

Knowles talked about the brawl while calling into a Houston radio station today (Aug. 27)

“There’s a tour going on,” the 63-year-old explained. “So you have to sometimes ignite that tour, it’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time.” He says. “Everybody’s talking about it, ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 per cent.”

Can’t say we think the fight was staged. Jay Z and Beyonce can sell out stadiums to fund their tours off their collaborative musical prowess, but if so, why would Matthew Knowles talk negatively about his own daughters? Talk about hustling backwards.
