Beyonce and her father, Mathew Knowles, could never see eye to eye as the man was always a difficult person. At the beginning of Beyonce’s career, when she was part of a band called Girls Tyme, Mathew reportedly took large sums of money for managing the group. He also abandoned the family on and off during her childhood while he was still married to her mother. Tina, Bey’s mother, officially divorced Mathew in 2011. Later, the world learned the shameful fact that Mathew fathered an illegitimate child while still being a husband to Tina.
