The empire built by Matthew Knowles has been crumbling for some time and now the final blow has been dealt. Last year, Knowles lost a major client in Kelly Rowland. When the girls were younger, Knowles helped solidify them as Destiny's Child. Upon gaining international fame and major fortune, Knowles reaped the benefits.

Early last year, Matthew Knowles lost his marriage when it was revealed he had an affair, which resulted in a baby. Tina Knowles left Matthew. When there were rumors of Beyonce being pregnant, Tina jokingly said she was pregnant. However, the media took the joke seriously and they went on for weeks.

With Jay-Z setting up business with Columbia Records and adding a management branch to Roc Nation, many felt as if he was trying to find a way to sign Beyonce. There have been rumors, for years, about Beyonce leaving both Matthew Knowles' management and Columbia Records. She left his boutique label last fall.

Now, Beyonce has completely cut business ties with her father, firing him as a manager. It was reported that she left over unpaid royalties. Beyonce denies this and will likely be joining Roc Nation under the record label, or either the management company.
