‘Rift between Beyonce and her dad over his affair’
New York: Beyonce Knowles has reportedly fallen out with her dad and manager, Matthew Knowles.
According to sources, the singer was horrified when it was revealed that Matthew fathered a love child with a woman 20 years his junior.
Now, Beyonce’s relationship with her father has reached such a low point that executives at her label, Columbia, fear the rift could damage her career, say sources.
"Beyonce was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mom. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mom, so this has hit her really hard,” the New York Post quoted one music industry insider as saying.
“She is refusing to speak to him, which is making things difficult where it comes to managing her career. Some people at Columbia now think it would be better to move him aside,” insider added.
However, Beyonce’s rep has denied the reports and said, "There is no merit to this. This is absolutely false."
