Beyoncé's Dad Says Singer Was Sexually Harassed By Members Of Jagged Edge While On Destiny's Child Tour

By Ryan Naumann

Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles claims members of the R&B group Jagged Edge sexually harassed his daughter 20 years ago.

67-year-old Mathew sat down with Vlad TV to talk about a variety of topics and promote his new book, Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story. He used to manage Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child back in the day.

During the sit-down, Knowles dropped the bombshell claim that two members of Jagged Edge behaved inappropriately with then 16-year-old Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. He said the incident went down 20 years ago when Destiny’s Child was touring with Jagged Edge on the same bus.

He claims Beyoncé and Kelly would constantly call him saying they were “being harassed by two of the members.”

Mathew said, “Now, remember the girls are minors: They're 16-years-old, the guys are 21- and 22-years-old. 'I got a call from Kelly and Beyoncé ... saying that they were constantly being harassed by two of the members in Jagged Edge. I couldn't have that. I literally had to put the guys off the bus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. ”He added, 'I have a fiduciary duty with minors, by the law, there's a certain way I have to manage that.'

He did not reveal the identity of the two band members.


Mathew even spilled the team about Destiny’s Child drama. He talked about an incident when former members LaTavia Roberson and LaToya Luckett hired new representation while still in the band.

He said, “An attorney called me out-of-the-blue to tell me that I would be getting a certified letter... to tell me that, at this point, that he was now on an interim basis managing LaTavia and LaToya. And that they would finally go and search for a final manager, but for now he was the interim manager.'

Mathew informed the lawyer LaTavia and LaToya only contributed about five percent to the vocals on tracks. He let him know Beyoncé and Kelly were putting in 95 percent of the vocals. LaTavia and LaToya left the group in 2000.

Beyonce has yet to comment on her father's claim. She is still dealing with her Blue Ivy legal drama.
