Beyonce’s Dad has decided to clear things out when it comes to the rumors of the marital problems that his famous daughter and Jay-Z are said to have. According to Beyonce’s dad, the two are an extremely happy couple.
Matthew Knowles said that the much debated elevator fight that involved Beyonce, Jay-Z and Solange was just a PR stunt. According to Beyonce and Solange’s dad, the famous couple’s team wanted the pair to get all the attention possible on their tour. And this is exactly what happened.
Matthew Knowles claimed that the entire elevator incident was staged, being a “Jedi mind trick” to promote ticket sales. The power couple has joined forces for a common world tour, the famous On the Run. “I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on,” the estranged father of the singer said. Matthew Knowles has served as his daughter’s manager, but was fired by Beyonce.
“So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot,” the man also said. “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!,” he concluded.
The incident that Matthew Knowles is talking about took place on May 5, in New York City. Beyonce and Jay-Z, along with Solange Knowles were involved in a fight at Standard Hotel. The three attended a party for the annual Met Gala and were captured on camera having a fight. The video was later leaked. This is when rumors emerged that Beyonce and Jay-Z have problems in their relationship.
After the footage was made public, a joint statement was released by the power couple, saying that Jay and Solange have assumed their responsibility on the events and the family issues have been solved. However, rumors did not stop here. Certain choices that the couple has made on their tour have only managed to make rumors worse, saying that the two are very close to a divorce.
Matthew Knowles also claimed that maybe a Destiny’s Child reunion will happen in the feature. Beyonce’s dad claimed that he still is the manager of the famous band that featured his daughter, along with Kelly and Michelle.
