Yesterday it was announced that 29-year-old[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Beyonce[/lastfm] would no longer be managed by her father, Mathew Knowles. While their relationship wasn’t as tumultuous as other paparazzi-cursed parent/child relationships, Mathew had been managing Beyonce’s career since she was in a pre-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Destiny’s Child [/lastfm]girl group. Some viewed it as a little overbearing and puzzling for Beyonce’s father to have full-reign over the diva’s multi-million dollar career. Others say that it’s admirable the Knowles kept it all in the family–mother Tina Knowles runs Beyonce’s House of Dereon clothing line.
That made us think about other potential overbearing, highly publicized, or questionable parenting. Click through our list of the Top 10 Most Controversial Parents of Celebrities.
10. Beyonce & Her Dad
A quote from Daily Mail UK had Beyonce saying:
“It took awhile for me and my dad to have an understanding. When I turned 18 and started handling my business more, he went into shock. And we had our issues. I’d say “No” to something, and he’d book it anyway.”
‘Then I’d have to do it because I’d look bad [if I didn’t]. We would fight sometimes, and it took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realise, “Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t wanna do something, I can’t make her do it.”‘
Do you think Beyonce can handle her career without her father or is he “Irreplaceable?”
