Beyoncé allegedly fired her father for stealing money from her.
According to legal documents sourced by TMZ, Mathew Knowles says Live Nation convinced his daughter that he had embezzled funds from her I Am…World Tour.
The papers claim Live Nation accused Mr. Knowles of having “stolen money from Beyoncé on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to.”
Mathew Knowles had managed his daughter since the LaTavia and LaToya days of Destiny’s Child until last March. At that time, the ‘Work It Out’ singer said in a statement “I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”
However, it is now suggested that Beyoncé requested an audit of her finances which corroborated Live Nation’s accusations. Papa Knowles is seeking the right to question Live Nation executives and clear his name in court.
Beyoncé is currently Number One with ‘4’ in both the US and UK.
