Beyoncé and her father are going their separate ways. The superstar will no longer be managed by her father Mathew Knowles, it was announced today.
The Grammy-winning singer’s publicist released a statement to The Associated Press revealing that Beyoncé and Mathew have split “on a business level.” While they may no longer have a professional relationship, a grateful Beyoncé added, “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”
Knowles managed his daughter since the start of her career as a member of Destiny’s Child and through her three solo albums. She is currently working on her fourth studio album, but new management has not been announced.
Her Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams previously split from Knowles to pursue solo careers.
