Beyonce's Dad

Jay Z Divorce Rumors

Are Just a 'Jedi Mind Trick'

breaking news

082814_mathew_knowles_launchMathew Knowles thinks the Beyonce/Jay Z divorce rumors ... and even the infamous Solange elevator fight video ... were both carefully orchestrated by the duo to drive up ticket sales.

Beyonce's dad was on KRBE in Houston where he theorized all the recent turmoil around the couple was simply a "Jedi mind trick" they orchestrated as a way to make their summer tour super popular. 

He explained, "All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!"

Knowles also tried to spark Destiny's Child reunion rumors, but since he claims to technically be their manager still ... it sounds more like another Jedi mind trick.

Worth mentioning ... Knowles hasn't managed Beyonce for years ... so maybe he's right about all this, but maybe he isn't.

He is just still mad, becasue she dropped him as her manager. She has a right to keep the money in her family now. Jay is her husband, and if he can make it work for them more power to him. Matthew needs to go sit down and take care of those babies he's producing all over the country

He's trying to do a Jedi mind trick right now. That elevator fight was not fake. The divorce rumors, probably so.

He's been cast out of any circle of knowledge about Bey, Jay or Solange. Just trying to stay relevant. Hey Dude, stick with what you're good at: go make another illegitimate baby with some random skank!

He needs to just up. He's been hanging on her coat tails for years. All he knows how to do is scrounge money and knock up stupid women and not pay for the kids he sires

Neither Beyonce or Kelly would have a career if it wasn't for Beyonce's father! They need to bow down! He taught them everything! "Dangerously in love" , B'Day , I Am... Sasha Fierce, those were her best selling albums she was making #1 hits he did that! When is the last time Beyonce has had a #1 hit on billboard don't worry I'll wait!
