Beyonce will no longer be managed by her father

March 29, 2011 - London

Beyonce Knowles' publicist has revealed that the singer will no longer be managed by her father, Mathew.

Mathew oversaw all aspects of Beyonce, from music to movies to fashion and more.

The Grammy-winning performer and her father have parted ways "on a business level," The Telegraph quoted her publicist Yvette Noel-Schure, as saying in a statement. She didn't say what led to the split.

"I am grateful for everything he has taught me," Beyonce said in the statement.

"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," she added.

Knowles has managed his daughter since she debuted as a teen in the multiplatinum-selling group Destiny's Child in the late 1990s and throughout her superstar career as a solo artist.
