Beyonce Drops Dad As Her Manager
Beyonce has parted ways with her father - Mathew Knowles will no longer manage his daughter's phenomenally successful career.
The patriarch resigned from his sales job in 1995 to take care of the star's singing aspirations, helping to launch her career with hit girl-group Destiny's Child.
Knowles also managed his daughter's bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, but Rowland ditched him as her manager in 2009, and Williams followed suit a year later.
Now, the Crazy In Love hit-maker has also decided to end her business arrangement with her dad - but she maintains their personal relationship is still intact.
In a statement, the singer's spokesperson, Yvette Noel-Schure, reveals Beyonce has parted from her father "on a business level," while Beyonce adds that "he is my father for life and I love my dad dearly."
