It's safe to say that Beyoncé and her father, Matthew Knowles, have a complicated relationship. He managed her career until she fired him in 2011, and there were rumors that the relationship was strained, mostly due to Knowles fathering two children outside of his marriage to Bey's mother, Tina.Beyoncé said this to Oprah about their relationship in 2013:
"It took a while 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 realize, 'Oh she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t wanna do something, I can’t make her do it.'"
While there are rumors that they have made up in the light of Knowles' cancer diagnosis, there hasn't been a public announcement of reconciliation.
Now, Knowles is publishing a tell-all book, Destiny's Child: The Untold Story, and it apparently has some shocking details.
