Yesterday, I posted a story about Kelly Rowland and her estrange relationship with the Knowles family, who are like family to her. Later we found out that Beyonce plans on taking a hiatus from the business to recharge her battery , and today we find out Michelle Williams axed Papa Knowles as head of her management. This has been a Destiny’s Child reunion, but not quite what we expected in 2010.
If you haven’t been keeping count, that’s 4 ex-members of Destiny’s Child (LaTavia, LaToya, Kelly, and Michelle) who all quit the group because of Matthew Papa Knowles. That doesn’t include Tina Knowles who is now divorcing him for infidelity; that resulted in a paternity suit.
Something tells me Beyonce would have left, too, if management wasn’t her father. We’ll see what happens after her hiatus, and the divorce.
Here’s the statement Michelle Williams released regarding the firing of Matthew Knowles:
After much prayer and consideration I have decided to part ways from my management team, Mathew Knowles and Music World Entertainment. From my time in Destiny’s Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me. We’ve shared great success together. However, as I move in a new direction in my career, I felt it was time. I wish Mathew Knowles and the Music World Entertainment family all the best.
Hopefully, this will mean great success for Michelle Williams, as it has for Kelly Rowland. My boy Quick sums it up for us:
Well, this chick’s [Kelly Rowland] career has already been better post-Matthew. She’s had a world wide smash single with “When Love Takes Over” and was host of the fashion show. She’s been performing her ass off and makes TONS OF $$$.
