Matthew Knowles Says He Never Stole From Beyonce, Calls Out Roc Nation & Others

Beyonce's father and former manager Matthew Knowles files papers in court against Columbia Records, Live Nation and Roc Nation.

After being fired by his daughter and music superstar Beyoncé Knowles, Matthew Knowles is finally speaking out against allegations that he stole from his daughter.

"We absolutely have not taken any money from Beyoncé, and all dollars will be accounted for," Knowles explained to the Associated Press. "In no way have we stole money. Again, this about the people who have made these claims - they have to come into the light."

Knowles’ interview with the AP comes shortly after he filed papers in court against Columbia Records, Live Nation Entertainment Inc., and even Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. His reason for filing papers against the three companies was due to “negative comments” they allegedly made against him.

Although Knowles has taken legal action he went on to stress that his relationship with Beyoncé is completely “amicable.”

"The relationship with Beyoncé is extremely amicable. I want to make that clear. Where there's concern is the people that she's doing business with," said Knowles. "I'm challenging all of these folks on integrity, professional integrity."

Knowles was fired as Beyoncé’s manager months ago, but reports of him allegedly stealing from the singer were brought to light earlier this week.

    The power of the mighty dollar gets them everytime (SMH). All these celebrities that beef w/family over doe is crazy, they probably would've still been cool if they were all still broke huh? And we wonder why they say, "Money is the root of all evil".

    When you got the type of money Beyonce has, it's not called stealing. It's called borrowing. Pops was gonna pay it back... Eventually.

      u can't be serious, stealing is stealing...just because you have it doesn't mean it's cool for someone to take it, even if it takes you a while to notice it happening, THAT'S YOUR MONEY! I help both my parents whenever I can, or whenever they need it, but if they steal so much as a dime from me and I catch them, they lose my trust and respect just like a child would and the help stops coming...if u need money from your fam you should just ask, plain and simple... Maybe this dude didn't steal, maybe he did...but if he stole from his own daughter that's foul...
