Papa Knowles to the rescue! Beyonce’s dad has spoken and claims the recent Bey and Jay divorce rumors are just a publicity stunt to boost ticket sales for the ‘On The Run’ tour. As crazy as this may seem, it is a way more palatable option than our fave couple splitting up!
We all know that Beyonce is queen of everything, and this means that she is also queen of good publicity. So while it was definitely a relief (team Bonnie and Clyde forever), it was not really a huge surprise this week when Bey’s father, Mathew Knowles, revealed on The Roula and Ryan Show that his daughter and hubby Jay Z‘s pending divorce was nothing but a rumor created by the power couple to increase ticket sales for their current tour, “On The Run.” Phew! This is still weird though, right?
Beyonce & Jay Z’s Split — Mathew Knowles Says It’s For Money
Referring to the divorce gossip as a “Jedi mind trick,” Mathew explained to Roula and Ryan, that this type of stunt is common in entertainment in order to create buzz and boost ticket sales, or as Mathew put it, “to ignite that tour.” He goes on to say that “It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times.”
While I can’t say I ever fully lost faith in music’s hottest couple, this particular “Jedi mind trick” definitely did get my wheels turning!
So what about the elevator fight with Solange Knowles then? If there is no real bad blood between Hova and Queen Bey, why the heck was little sis going after hubby in the elevator? According to Mathew, this was staged too! “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 percent!”
‘Destiny’s Child’ Reunion Album Is Happening
As if Mathew didn’t share enough major news, he also hinted at a potential Destiny’s Child album for 2015.
He is still the group’s manager and it seems like he has a plan.
“When you see Destiny’s Child on TV and you see them doing songs together slowly, slowly,” Mathew explained. ” Now they’ve done two, they were recently on TV – I don’t know, it might be another Destiny’s Child album coming.”
This is too much for one day! Bey and Jay’s marriage alive and well plus Bey, Kelly and Michelle back together for a whole album?! Say it isn’t so! Actually, we really hope it is.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you believe what Mathew Knowles is saying about the marriage troubles being a publicity stunt? Let us know!
