One of the creators of Beyonce´, both as a human and an artist, is her father, Mathew Knowles. Thank you, Mathew.
Beyonce´and Mathew have a highly complicated relationship, the public is well aware. Word is Lemonade is partly about him, since he cheated on Bey's mom, Tina, and became the father to two half-siblings to Bey.
The first was was revealed in 2014, when the world discovered Blue Ivy had an aunt. Who was 4-years-old.
A lingerie model from Houston, Texas, named TaQoya Branscomb, came forward to say that Matthew was the father to her daughter, Koi, who was born in 2010 as the result of an affair the duo had behind Tina's back. Bey did not like this. Reports say she still hasn't met her half-sister.
That's not all. Bey's philandering father had another surprise in store for Queen B and her younger sister/elevator boxer, Solange.
An actress by the name of Alexsandra Wright had given birth to a 4-year-old boy named Nixon Alexander in 2010. Guess who the father is? Rhymes with Schmatthew Schmowles. That's right, a DNA test confirmed it. Alexsandra and Matthew had carried out an 18-month long affair while he was still married to Tina.
Tina finally became fed up enough to call it quits on the 31-year marriage, and the duo's divorce was finalized in 2011.
That same year, Beyonce´ also dumped her dad as her manager. Claiming in a statement it was for business reasons, we suspect his extracurricular activities could have contributed to the demise of their work relationship.
"I've only parted ways with my father on a business level," she had said at the time. "He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."
Matthew countered with a statement saying, "Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success."
It appears now that some of the damage has been repaired, or at least they're trying.
Tina, who got remarried to actor Richard Lawson in 2015, posted an Instagram shot of her superstar daughter and her ex-husband together, captioning it, "Houston Concert proud dad!!!!" It's not clear if Bey's exhausted from performing or if she's just not feeling the picture, but her smile does appear to be slightly plastic.
