Beyonce's Father Says Beyonce and Jay Z used elevator fight and divorce drama to sell tour ticketsFriday, August 29, 2014
Beyoncé’s father Mattew Knowles while having a chat with 104.1 KRBE addressed reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z are on the verge of divorce and also irrespective of the fact Queen Bey sacked him as her manager in 2011, they still have a good father and daughter relationship and speak often.
“We still talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person that she’s always been.” The infamous elevator fight between Solange and Jay, and the divorce rumors were used to promote their On The Run tour.
“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.”
When he was asked if they staged the elevator fight between Solange and Jay Z, he said:
“All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”
