Ya’ll remember when Beyonce fired her dad, Matthew Knowles, as her manager? Well, at the time there was all kinds of speculation as to what happened, etc… Yanno, we all want to know the juicy details when mess goes down. It looks like at least a little bit of those details are coming to light as Beyonce’s dad filed legal papers explaining why he was fired.
According to TMZ, Beyonce’s dad claims B is under the impression that he stole money from her- lots of money from her, to be more precise. And, well, Papa B says that’s just not true.
In the legal documents obtained by TMZ, Matthew claims Live Nation Entertainment wanted to get a piece of Beyonce’s 2011 world tour. In fact, he claims Live Nation went so far as to say that he’d “stolen money from Beyonce on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to.”
From there he claims that the tactics by Live Nation were ultimately successful and caused Beyonce’s law firm to conduct and audit which concluded that he had indeed stolen some cash, which led to his firing.
It doesn’t quite end there, because Papa B also says that Beyonce then hired a manager that was a former exec at Live Nation and maintained a relationship with the company.
Of course, he claims that the allegations are false, blah blah, and apparently wants the judge to give him the right to take depositions of different people at Live Nation in order to determine how they came to the conclusion that he was a theif.
And, now we know. Beyonce fired her dad for stealing, but he claims conspiracy. Definite dramas.
