In a recent radio interview, Beyonce‘s dad and ex-manager Mathew Knowles claims the infamous elevator brawl between his troubled daughter, Solange Knowles, and his son-in-law, Jay Z, was staged.
Knowles told The Roula and Ryan Show on 104.1 KRBE in Houston that the brawl was a “Jedi mind trick” to boost ticket sales for Beyonce’s tour.
“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour,” he said. “It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.”
Knowles added: “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”
Mr. Knowles is getting up in age, so maybe his memory is failing him. Maybe he forgot that none of the people in the elevator knew they were being filmed.
But if what Mr. Knowles says is true; Solange should win an Oscar for that butt kicking she gave Jay Z. Her pent up rage looked so genuine and off-script.
