Was Beyonce‘s dad stealing money from her? According to TMZ.com, Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowleshas filed legal papers — which may now explain why she fired him as her manager earlier this year. In the docs, Mathew claimed that Bey is under the impression that he stole lots of money from her — which he denies. He said that Live Nation Entertainment wanted in on Beyonce’s upcoming 2011 world tour and that the company told the superstar that he “had stolen money from Beyonce on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to.”
Mathew has claimed that Live Nation was effective, because Beyonce had her law firm conduct an audit and they concluded that Mathew had stolen money from her. He was then fired. Mathew then claimed after he was fired, Beyonce hired a manager who had worked as a former exec at Live Nation and maintained a relationship with the company.
- Mathew has insisted that the theft accusations are false and wants the judge to give him the right to take depositions of various people at Live Nation — to determine just how they concluded that he was a thief.
