Looks like Beyonce is trying to start with a fresh slate and a new manager for her upcoming album, which is rumored to be entitled Round IV. According to Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, Mathew Knowles will no longer be Beyonce’s manager.
In an issued statement, the 29 year-old said that
“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. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me.”
Beyonce’s publicist also added that they have parted ways solely “on a business level.”
Man, Beyonce better stop with all these teasers! Please hurry and drop that first single…but wait, who’s going to manage her now? Could it be the company that starts with a ‘R’? [Source]
