Beyoncé's Dad Makes Bombshell Claim: Divorce Rumors Were Made Up
Did Beyoncé and Jay Z help plant split rumors to drum up sales for their On the Run Tour?
Possibly, according to Bey's dad, Matthew Knowles.
The 63-year-old music executive made the bombshell claim when he stopped by Houston's Roula and Ryan Show yesterday (August 27th).
Knowles, whose relationship to his famous daughter has been strained for several years, told the radio station that Beyoncé and Jay Z may have employed the ol' Jedi mind trick to create buzz surrounding the state of the couple's marriage.
“The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times. So things you see sometimes are [makes poof noise],” Knowles posited.elevator incident between his daughter Solange and his son-in-law was staged as well.
"Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%," Knowles said, refusing to speculate further.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have been dogged by divorce rumors ever since the video of Solange attacking Jay Z at the Met Gala was released back in May.
Do you think Bey and Jay's marriage is really on the rocks? Or did the superstars manipulate the media?
