And Now, A Happy Family Moment From Beyoncè, Blue Ivy and Matthew Knowles

It's a family affair. 

In a day full of heavy news, a gleam of sunshine has come across social media: Beyonce has reunited with her father and former manager Mathew Knowles.

The family reunion was first documented on Mama Tina's Instagram account last week when Bey performed in Houston for her Formation world tour. The singer officially shared the photo from their meet up on her own page earlier today (May 26) She also posted an adorable batch of photos of her, Blue Ivy and Mr. Knowles enjoying a few laughs.

The entertainer addressed her relationship with her father in the visual album LEMONADE. During Accountability, Bey recites Warsan Shire's words about a woman's view of her deceitful partner and the likeness to her father.

"Did he bend your reflection?," she said. "Did he make you forget your own name? Did he convince you he was a god? Did you get on your knees daily? Do his eyes close like doors? Are you a slave to the back of his head? Am I talking about your husband or your father?"

When it comes to the genre-bending "Daddy Lessons," Knowles doesn't believe the song is entirely about him. Speaking with WatchLoud in April, the businessman says he's aware of his impression he's made on Bey and Solange.

"My kids, they take a lot from me and I always come from an intellectual place," he said. "When I listen to 'Daddy Lessons' - and Beyoncé wrote me a song on her first album called "Daddy" [as well] - but when I hear this song ['Daddy's Lessons'] I'm sure that some of that, hopefully, I inspired her. But am I sure, no."'

Beyonce and Knowles ended their business relationship in 2009 after numerous mismanagement rumors. Before managing her solo career, he was the manager of the multi-platinum girl group Destiny's Child. The singer went on to create Parkwood Entertainment, which houses herself and a few budding artists like sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey, singer Sophie Beem and Houston femcee Ingrid.

All in all, it looks like everyone is embracing forgiveness and growth.

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
