Beyonce Knowles has been a household name from a very young age. The credit perhaps would go to a father for fueling her ambitions and bringing her into the spotlight. The credit would equally be shared with her bandmates in Destiny’s Child.
Beyonce’s potential was beyond just her childhood stardom. She was stuck at a place that held her from rising into a solo icon.
You all will be baffled to learn that it was her father who was the elephant in the room. In 2011, Beyonce shocked the world when she blamed her father for stealing her money.
Mathew Knowles vehemently denied the claims.
Beyonce issued a statement via billboard where she spoke about her claims. She said, ” I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother (Tina Knowles) managed and own their own business. They were hard working entrepreneurs, and I will continue to follow their footsteps.” Isn’t it heartbreaking that her father was both ‘the friend and the foe’.
Jay-Z has been an integral part of Beyonce’s life. He has been her pillar of strength since teenage days. Both have had their own intricate journey. He swayed her during these hard times with her father.
Even The Rich is a podcast show that deals with the problems of rich celebrities. According to them Beyonce hired a firm to spy and investigate on her father’s doing. She hired them in the late 2010, until she exposed him the next year. Her father was found guilty on all charges during the investigation.
How did Jay-Z help Beyonce outgrow the tox environment:
This moved Beyonce greatly. Had it not been for a husband she could have not made a right decision. It was Jay-Z who motivated to liberate herself from the claws of her father. She took his advice and did exactly the same.
After parting ways Beyonce flourished as an individual. Her album “Lemonade” was one of the most successful and soon became a cultural phenomenon.
Now, she was no more groveling in the ground but was flying great heights. Beyonce was now more than just a singer she had become an icon.
She is an embodiment of power. Since the 1960’s Beyonce actively practiced female empowerment, racial equality and standing up for oneself.
Though it was for her father that she came face to face with her dreams. He grew toxic for her. Thank god for Jay-Z who stood like her backbone and never let her fall. He encouraged her to grow and over-grow from things that curved her potential.
Probably this is the reason why, let us admit it, who doesn’t no Beyonce. !!!
