True or False: Mathew Knowles is Paying Off Stations to Diss Letoya Luckett…

- By Bossip Staff

We all know Mathew is sneaky, but now a source tells Bossip that Mathew is even dirtier than we thought when it comes to making sure Bey Bey Beyonce stays on top of the charts. 

Flip the Hood for the Details…

A source in the Knowles camp tells us that Mathew truly despises Letoya Luckett and has been using payola to pay off DJ’s at radio stations not to play Letoya’s music. Letoya’s new single “Regret” doesn’t get any bigger than it already is.  Our source says that Mathew thinks Letoya’s  success will overshadow Beyonce’s if Letoya’s music gets as much airplay exposure as Beyonce’s.

We also learned that Beyonce is aware of what’s going on but won’t say anything to stop her dad. Apparently, she trusts Matthew and what he’s doing. Bossip researched and found out that Letoya’s single is in the top 5 spot on Urban radio charts, showing that the song has the potential to be played at the top urban radio stations in heavy rotation, yet it’s not.

Hmmm… we wonder why.  We hear that Matthew is covering up the payola expense to pay off radio stations by saying the money is being used to go and review Beyonce’s tour shows at various venues. We hear he hasn’t had trouble with east coast stations because of their affiliations with Jay-Z, but the west coast stations haven’t been as easy.

As if this wasn’t enough, our source tells us this is only the tip of the iceberg and Matthew has more up his sleeves.  Such a shame, Letoya didn’t even bad mouth Matthew when we chopped it up with her a couple of  months ago. SMH Pics of Letoya on the set of her video for “Regret” below.

  • Rihanna's sharp n pointy witchy fingernails took the oath

    Keep trying, Matty. Latoya is effotlessly beautiful, whereas some depend on cusions, pins, illusion makeup, dance tigts, and acting like a flaming gay male to prove their beauty.

    I think he did!

    “poor Tina”-now, I’d say poor Matt, in that sense. She looks like an evil gargoyle.

    I’d hate to be around to even feel the after shock of the Karma that awaits this dirty rat. Sowrong and Beyaki better get out before they go down with him. It may not be tomorrow, it may not be next year, but when this man gets what’s comin to him…good Lawd!

  • electrik

    EVEN IF ALL OF THIS IS TRUE IT DOES NOT STOP THE LETOYA FANS FROM BUYING HER ALBUM IN STORES OR ON ITUNES…I DONT THINK MATTHEW WOULD WASTE HIS MONEY ON SOMETHING THAT WAS GOING TO FLOP ANYWAY…IT WOULDNT MAKE SENSE.

    SHE HAD VERY LITTLE PROMOTION AND THESE DAYS U NEED MORE THAN AIR PLAY…IT WOULD HAVE HELPED BUT APPARENTLY NOT THAT MUCH..WHAT SHE WOULD HAVE SOLD 50K INSTEAD OF 35K FIRST WEEK.ITS STILL A FLOP

    I BROUGHT THE CD BUT I STILL KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO FLOP…A BLIND MAN COULD SEE THAT…I LOVE LETOYA BUT IT JUST WASNT MEANT THIS TIME AROUND.

    AND GET THIS…AT THE END OF THE DAY ALL THE NOISE YALL MAKE AINT GONE MEAN A DAMN THING…BEYONCE WONT STOP WHAT SHE IS DOING…MATTHEW WONT STOP WHAT HE IS DOING AND TOYA WONT STOP WHAT SHE IS DOING.

  • MrS*Glok

    I wouldn’t doubt it. Matthew needs to be shut down!!!
    Letoya knows she always has H-town behind her. Stay humble and keep God first 😀

    The Knowles/Carter clan will be judged accordingly.

  • JDavis

    I doubt he is doing this or even thinking about this girl. Sorry but her album flopped. Blame her label, her fans or whoever but Mathew has nothing to do with this. Hell the same “fans” saying he sabotaged her probably didn’t buy the album.

  • ruserious

    well one thing her and bey got it common: A NOSE JOB!

  • http://bossip.com tasty t

    IF THIS IS THE CASE WHERE HE IS PAYING RADIO STATIONS OFF FIRST OF ALL WHOMEVER IS ACCEPTING THE MONEY NEEDS TO BE FIRED SECOND OF ALL LATOYA IS A RAW TALENT AND CAN SING AND SHE IS A THREAT TO HIM AND BEYONCE, BUT I TELL YOU WHAT GOD HAS FOR LATOYA IS FOR LATOYA AND ALL THE MONEY THAT MR MATTHEW PAYS OUT CANT STOP THAT MR. KNOWLES YOU CANT STOP GOD SO IF I WAS YOU I WOULD SIT DOWN, CAUSE ONCE GOD GET’S ON YOU THERE IS NOTHING NOBODY CAN DO, SO LET LATOYA DO HER THING IN A POSITIVE WAY AND I MUST SAY THROUGH EVERYTHING THAT MATTHEW HAS DONED TO THIS GIRL SHE STILL STANDS STRONG SO WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU MR KNOWLES, YOU CANT STOP GOD
