When the checks stop coming in… Guess the whole code of silence no longer applies! Beysus’ Dad Mathew Knowles did a new interview this weekend talking about the hard knock life he’s had since Camel took his spot.
Via the UK Sun:
BEYONCE’S dad has talked for the first time about the bitter rift with his famous daughter – admitting he is devastated at being pushed out of her life.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Mathew Knowles also hits back at claims he mismanaged the singer’s finances when he was in charge of her career.
Although he insists the decision to go their separate ways was mutual, Mathew, 61, is hurt that Beyonce has cut him out of her life.
It is believed he is yet to meet his 14-month-old granddaughter Blue Ivy, Beyonce’s child with rapper husband Jay-Z.
Mathew says: “I’ve never revealed this much in an interview before.
“Normally I hate to talk about anything personal, but it would be a lie if I did not say it has been difficult.
“It was hard for me to let her go — it was hard for both of us to let each other go. And let’s be clear on that. She didn’t let me go, we both let each other go. That’s a big difference.”
Speaking from his office in Houston, Texas, he adds: “This was not a normal ending of a business agreement. This was a dad and a daughter and it was incredibly painful and it had some difficulties.
“But I try to always have a positive mind about things and you got to do it the right way.”
Notice that the Sun also implies that Mathew doesn’t have much of a role in Blue Ivy, even questioning whether they’ve met, but Daily Mail puts a more upbeat spin on the relationship:
With their initial woes behind them, Mathew admitted that he was proud of the ‘sensational performance’ Beyoncé gave at President Obama’s inauguration.
He went on to say he has hopes to one day manage Beyoncé’s career again, but for now Mathew is focused on playing the role of grandfather to Blue Ivy and younger daughter Solange’s son Daniel.
He gushed: ‘The beauty of being a grandad is you can always give them back. You get to do all the fun stuff and not the harder things.’
Well… Do you believe him? Cuz we feel like there’s definitely more to this story.
