Mathew Knowles Addresses Strained Relationship With Daughters Beyoncé & Solange [VIDEO]
There have been rumors circulating that Mathew Knowles is estranged from his famous daughters, Beyonce and Solange, but the patriarch addressed the reports during a recent interview.

Mathew spoke with Fox 26’s Jonathan Martin about the “bold face lies” of him being estranged from the family. Knowles is attempting to clear up the rumors surrounding his relationships with his famous daughters.

Knowles also addressed the rumors that Beyonce had banned her father from the delivery room as she gears up for the birth of her twins.

Mathew told Fox 26, “I communicate with my daughters weekly." 

"I would describe my relationship with my daughters as loving," adding that he’s never been estranged from his daughters or gone without speaking to them, rumors that started after it was revealed that Knowles had fathered a child with another woman while married to ex-wife Tina Knowles-Lawson.

Knowles shot down the reports he has been banned from Beyoncé’s delivery room, calling the rumors lies. "That’s a lie. There’s a difference between a rumor and a lie. That’s a bold lie.”

Beyonce fired her father/manager in 2011 after disagreements over the direction of her career. She discussed her reasoning on Oprah’s The Next Chapter in 2013. 

“It took a while for me and my dad to have an understanding. When I turned 18 and started handling my business more, he went into shock. And we had our issues. I’d say ‘no’ to something, and he’d book it anyway. Then I’d have to do it because I’d look bad [if I didn’t],” Beyoncé explains in the interview with Oprah.
“We would fight sometimes, and it took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realize, ‘Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t wanna do something, I can’t make her do it.'”

Mathew currently has a play in the works about Destiny’s Child told from his perspective. There are reports that Idris Elba will be playing the role of Mr. Knowles.

The business relationship between Beyonce and her father ended in 2011. However, Mathew's music label, Music World Entertainment, just celebrated 25 years in the music business. 

Knowles manages a Houston-based girl groups called Blush and he is in his ninth year as a professor at Texas Southern University. Mathew also released his book, The DNA of Achievers: 10 Traits Of Highly Successful People in 2016.
