Can the Knowles family catch a break?
The star-studded brood has too much to deal with; they're juggling Solange's burgeoning success, Beyoncé's pregnancy, and Mathew's lawsuits. Forget the Joneses. Try keeping up with the Knowleses. In an interview with the Domenick Nati Show, the father of both Solange and Beyoncé, Mathew, talks about the issues that he and his girls are battling. "There will be a price to pay for those people who started that lie," Knowles says.
He was referring to the media accusing him of stealing Beyoncé's items to auction, so he could pay his debt. While he never took legal action in the past, he's willing to go to court now. "We will be filing lawsuits against people that will continually lie. I'm not litigious," he states. He's just tired of moochers living off of Beyoncé's stardom. Knowles may be a businessman, but he'll always be a father first.
He wants what every father should want: his daughters happy and healthy. "I'm not going to let [anyone] take advantage of my kid's name," he says. He feels like his own flesh and blood is being abused for the sake of "viewership" and "advertisement." He's had enough of the hullabaloo. He's looking towards the future.
"I'm happy and proud to see Solange and her growth. She has her first, number one record, and she's breaking records with her sister," he says. Regardless of what Knowles faces, he's so in awe of his children. They've come so far, and they're now seen as doyennes in their careers. Beyoncé's already a staple musician in the mainstream realm, but Solange's brandishing her name as an indie artist. He's grateful for his daughters' success, but he's very thankful that Solange has been recognized in the music industry.
"[I'm so proud of] her artistry, soul, creativity, and incredible live performances," he says. While Solange's enjoying her time as a respected artist, her sister's working overtime outside of the studio. Beyoncé's expecting twins with her husband Jay Z. Like any other protective parent, Knowles opts for his eldest daughter's privacy.
He affirms, "I'll talk business questions with [The Domenick Nati Show] all day long, but what I won't do is talk personal questions."
