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.
