Beyonce Knowles’ father Matthew has managed her career since it began with Destiny’s Child, but now the singer wants to separate their personal and business relationship.
Beyonce said in a statement, “I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage me and own their own businesses. They are hard working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps.
“He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me.”
Matthew said the decision on ending his management duties was “mutual”.
Matthew said he will continue to support his daughter in her career and is “very proud of who she is”.
