Beyonce's Beef is a Family Affair

12/15/2006 5:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce's not creating the supposed catfight with "Dreamgirls" costar Jennifer Hudson – her daddy Matthew is.
Beyonce, Matthew Knowles, Jennifer Hudson
As E!'s Marc Malkin reports, during the filming of "Dreamgirls," the ever-overbearing Matthew tried to sign Hudson as a management client, only to rebuffed by the former "American Idol" contestant. Despite her rejection, Matthew went around telling people he'd been representing the breakout star.

What's more, after an early screening, both Matthew and B's mom (Tina) flipped over Hudson's screen time, arguing with writer/director Bill Condon that the flick needed to be recut and include more B and less J -- Condon refused.

Of course it's not the first time Matthew has gone ballistic over Beyonce. Back in June, when TMZ posted video of PETA confronting Beyonce over her fondness for fur, Matthew tried just about everything in his quiver to get it taken down. It didn't work.

First of all B's mother and father gave up a lot to full fill a dream that they all must have had.... Of, course he is out there running things heck someone has to .. Everyone, that has made it had to have someone in their camp that was a Joe Jackson or Matthew not to say that it is right or necessary but it's the reality... B is an okay singer I personally feel that she is way over rated and it's because of her beauty, body and how she plays it up... B is definetly not an actress we must all admit that... She might have been nominated but there was no chance in hell that she would ever win...not for acting... Now, with singing and how they can help you out in studios she has a bigger chance of winning music awards... You can't do anything magic for a person who simply can not act..... B has said a lot of things about herself that she said not her father so B has to take the fall for those things (check out number 5 for more details, I heard her say these things).. Jennifer can blow with or without a studio.... Jennifer can also act... That's why she is winning every award that she has been up for......

You can say all you want about Beyonce, but one thing is for certain she sounds great live.

To me she comes across as compassionate.

No one can get a good feeling from being overshadowed.

Yes, I agree, it's Jennifer's time to shine.

To all of haters out there who sallivate over entertainers who have to take a step back to let new blood rize to the top, I say, get your asses out there and give it a shot.

Oh! What's the matter? Ain't got no talent? Yeah! I though so.

Stop hatin' and start participatin'.

Good lord this whole family is a joke. Her dad is a di&k, not to mention a liar and her mom can't stand the fact that her daughter has little true talent. Thanks for posting the story TMZ, let's see how long it takes daddy dearest to try to get this post down too. (And fail in his attempts again I'm sure)

Beyonce's father is not helping her any he's making her look like a stuck up snobb because what every he does or says peolpe are reporting it was B that said it or did it! B needs to pull a Janet at let her father go as her manager! She is a really sweet and supportive girl but she's been looking very bad in the press lately thanks to her father!

mathew wanted to sign her so he can ruin her career and make beyonce the bigger star...he wanted to take her down.
he sees jennifer AS A THREAT to beyonces oscar and grammys chances

jennifer sees mathew for what he is and she is SMART !!!! to refuse to work for him..he wanted total controll over her

I think her father is a problem! But a have to disagree with #2 on the whole not talented thing! That girl is mad talented! She did in fact get nominated for two Golden Globes yesterday best lead actress and best song for Listen off the movie soundtrack! You go B just get your pops under controll!

I sure hope that Jennifer Hudson gets the awards, not Beyonce. She claimed that she's ALREADY a star and has money and fame and blah blah blah. Really cocky on her part, wouldn't you say?? Seriously, enough of Beyonce.

I cannot stand Matthew. I am so glad somone said no to him, who does he think he is? Know he is trying to take credit for Jennifer Hudson. I was really starting not to like Beyonce because of all the rumors going around that they are give Jennifer attitude, but I really think Jennifer can handle herself. We'll see how it plays out.
