Mathew Knowles Responds to Beyoncé Split: ‘Business Is Business’

Beyoncé and Mathew Knowles

Following Beyoncé’s announcement that her father would no longer manage her career, Mathew Knowles has issued his own statement addressing their split. While reflecting on the success he had with the pop superstar, Mathew reiterated that their decision was mutual and that he was proud of his daughter.

Knowles’ Music World Entertainment will continue its involvement with Destiny’s Child and focus on its gospel artists. In addition, teen singer Tiffany Evans will no longer be represented by the company.

Read Mathew’s official statement below.

The decision for Beyoncé and Music World Entertainment to part was mutual. We did great things together, and I know that she will continue to conquer new territories in music and entertainment. Currently, I am very focused on the tremendous investment that our record label has made in the gospel/inspirational genre of music and on our supremely talented roster of artists, including Trin-i-tee 5:7, Brian Courtney Wilson, Juanita Bynum, Micah Stampley, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Pastor Rudy and others.

Music World will continue its partnership with Sony with Destiny’s Child and UK female group From Above, as well as management. We will also continue to develop the Music World family of labels: Music World Country/Compadre, Music World Kids and Music World Music. In Music World’s repositioning it will not continue its label/management role with Columbia/Sony artist Tiffany Evans.

Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success.

    I’m glad they still love each other. Beyoncé is a grown woman and she’ll do what’s best for her music and career.

    Who will be her new management team – Roc Nation? They tore Rihanna away from her manager. I can see them brainwashing Bey into leaving her dad. Let see how smart Beyonce really is. Will she make the predictable decision and have her hubby’s company manage her or will she find someone else?

    The Gray in Matthew hair reminds me of WiZ Khalifia Blonde Spot.

    Beyonce will not join Roc Nation. Columbia will not let her go they will double her money or something.

    just because Beyonce’s management is gonnr be Roc Nation doesn’t mean she’s gonnr leave Columbia Records. Rihanna is still signed to Island Def Jam Recordings but her management is with Roc Nation!

    @Beyonce is the Queen, Def Jam and roc nation have correlations, Roc Nation and Columbia does not. If am not mistaken Jay-Z was CEO of Def Jam at one point.

    Well lets hope she’ll still be able to make good R&B music and maintain her worldwide status. got Keyshia Cole, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, now it’s time for Beyonce to make her comeback

    @Beyonce is the Queen,

    She will have to leave Columbia if she signs with RocNation.

    RocNation is part of Def Jam.

    Like MusicWorld was Part of Columbia.

    She cant still be in Columbia and be part of Roc Nation.

    Roc Nation is not a part of Def Jam, but it do distribute thru Columbia. Also Beyonce has a 50/50% deal with columbia.
