Beyonce’s firing of her dad as her manager is now believed to be the result of him stealing money from her.
According to legal papers obtained by TMZ, Mathew Knowles is claiming that Live Nation Entertainment made false claims about him to his daughter in the hopes of coming aboard her 2011 world tour.
“I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life, and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” Beyonce said in a statement on the termination in March.
“I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps,” she added.
While Mr. Knowles denies claims that he stole any money, Beyonce’s law firm conducted an audit that concluded that Knowles had in fact stolen money.
Mr. Knowles has asked a judge to take depositions from Live Nation employees to determine how they arrived at their conclusions.
Beyonce’s most recent album, “4”, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
The ‘If I Were A Boy’ singer stunned revellers by playing a number of covers during her energetic set at the world-famous music event in Somerset, South West England, as well as a collection of songs by her girl group Destiny’s Child.
As she began her performance on the Pyramid stage, Beyonce told the 170,000-strong crowd: “I want you to know right now you are witnessing my dream.
“I always wanted to be a rock star and tonight we are all rock stars.”
Beyonce – the first female solo headliner at the event in 25 years – sang Prince’s ‘The Beautiful Ones’, Kings of Leon’s ‘Sex on Fire’ and a rendition of the Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams’, as well as a Destiny’s Child medley, but her former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams did not appear alongside her as had been rumoured.
The singer wore a low-cut gold sequinned jacket and black hotpants throughout her 90-minute set, which saw rapper husband Jay-Z and friend Gwyneth Paltrow looking on from the VIP area.
She opened with ‘Crazy in Love’ and wowed the crowds with ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), as well as latest single ‘Run The World (Girls)’ before closing the festival with ‘Halo’.
Beyonce spent most of the weekend at the festival with her husband, and revealed before her performance she had sought advice from her fellow headliners Coldplay and U2.
She told the BBC: “I’m the biggest fan of U2 and I’m the biggest fan of Coldplay, they are genius, so I’ve spoken to both of them about my setlist. I’m so excited to share the stage with them.
“For Glastonbury to recognise that women have the power to headline, that’s amazing, and I’m proud that I am the chosen woman. I am going to rock!”
Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson is set to release the single ‘No One Gonna Love You’ on August 8th taken from her album ‘I Remember Me’ out now.
The track, produced by Rich Harrison (Mary J Blige, Usher, Beyonce), shows off Jennifer’s strong vocal talents and personality as she tells the man in her life why she’s the woman for him.
The album title, ‘I Remember Me’, is based on a poem written by Jennifer and composed into a beautiful song co-written by Ryan Tedder (Beyonce’s ‘Halo’ and Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’) featured on the album. Additional writers and producers on the album include multi-award winners Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rich Harrison, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
”m excited about this album because it’s almost like a renewal for me, reflected through the chapters of my life,’ comments Jennifer. ”ve called it ‘I Remember Me’ because of the journey I’ve been on. I’ve learned that life constantly surprises you, no matter your plans. My fans have been so loyal, I feel like they have been on this journey with me and I can’t wait for them to hear the new album.’
Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment states: “Jennifer is the voice of the new generation and she literally soars on her second album ‘I Remember Me.’ Jennifer fulfills all of her promise and all of the prophesies that she will be on that short list of great vocalists of our time.”
