Beyonce is reportedly still “refusing to speak” with her father Mathew Knowles after he fathered a love child with actress Alexsandra Wright, who’s 20 years his junior. Apparently relations between the two are so bad, it’s now interfering with her work – her father is her manager.
A music industry insider says that executives at Columbia are worried because their relationship has reached such a low point and thinkit may be a good idea if Mathe stepped down, reports the New York Post:
“Beyoncé was horrified to find out her dad cheated on her mum. She always looked up to him, and she is very close to her mum, so this has hit her really hard.
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.”
Knowles had an 18-month affair with actress Alexsandra Wright and fathered a boy, Nixon, who was born just four months ago. After a paternity test proved the baby was his, a judge ordered him to pay $8,200 a month in child support.
