Beyonce's dad says he was forced out of managing his daughter and now her new management is claiming he stole from his own daughter!
Beyoncé's father wants to depose Live Nation to find out if the concert promotion giant orchestrated allegations that he stole from his superstar daughter and if she earned a payday for dumping him as her manager.
As previously reported, Bey fired her dad manager Mathew Knowles on May 13. A petition was filed on Monday in Harris County District Court.
Beyonce's dad alleges that he was forced out of managing his daughter's affairs by a company that wanted to run her lucrative world tour. He is asking a judge for permission to question Live Nation officials about their business relationships with Beyoncé and her husband, rap mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, among others.
Matthew especially wants to know who told his daughter that he took money he wasn't entitled to and if Live Nation had a role in his termination. That information, the petition said, will help him investigate potential grounds for a lawsuit.
Before Matthew's termination in May, Live Nation only possessed the rights to Beyoncé's 2011 North American tour, the petition said.
"Upon information and belief, after failing to secure the rights to Beyoncé's world tour, Live Nation agents or representatives made statements to Beyoncé, alleging that (Knowles) had stolen money from Beyoncé on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds,"says the document.
Whether or not Matthew's allegations are true.....we've seen this time and time again...talent being pulled away from their family or people in their lives so their NEW management can have all control.
