Beyoncé's Dad Claims She & Kelly Rowland Were Harassed as Teens

Beyonce's father Mathew Knowles is making some serious allegation against Jagged Edge members.

According to Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles, both his then-underaged daughter and fellow Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland were harassed by members of the R&B group Jagged Edge. And whereas Knowles doesn't title which two members of the group had been allegedly the issue, it's nonetheless a really critical (and unlucky) factor to should confront, each as a supervisor, and particularly as a dad!

The music manager said: 'The girls were 15 and 16 years old.

Knowles said that while they were touring, he received a call from Kelly where she claimed that she and Beyonce were constantly harassed by 2 members of the male band.

He told Metro.co.uk in January - amid the initial discussion brought about by the the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly - that when he and the group met with the singer, the girls were around 15- or 16-years-old. "I have a fiduciary duty with minors, by law". There's a certain way I have to manage that.

Matthew explained the "drama" took place around the same time as Beyoncé and Kelly's then-bandmates LaTavia Roberson and LaToya Luckett made a decision to find their own separate management.

He continued: "I literally had to put the guys off the bus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana".

Knowles said the incident "began all the drama" that led to the acrimonious departure of original Destiny's Child members LaTavia Robertson and LaToya Luckett, who wanted to find their own management.

Knowles' comments are a change in direction from the story told in Jagged Edge's 2017 Unsung episode. In the boy group Jagged Edge, there were four members, named Brian Casey, Brandon Casey, Richard Wingo and Kyle Norman.

A representative from Jagged Edge told Metro.co.uk: "Since I was not the bus, I would have no first-hand knowledge of this".

The event reportedly deepened tensions between Knowles, Luckett, and Roberson.

He replied: "We won't talk about that on camera". The story was, for some time, that the guys were part of the reason the girls were kicked out of DC.
