Matthew Knowles Admits Beyonce Jay Z Divorce Rumors Were “Jedi Mind Trick” To Sell Tour Tickets


While Jay Z and Beyonce may have put rumors to rest this past Sunday night during the MTV Video Music Awards we are now learning something new.

Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles recently interviewed with Roula & Ryan Show on 104.1 KRBE in Houston earlier this week. When Matthew was asked about the infamous elevator incident between Jay and his daughter Solange and the divorce rumors he had a lot to say. Apparently the whole scandal was a “Jedi mind trick” to help increase ticket sales for “On The Run Tour”.

“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on,” he said. “So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.”

Solange’s album sales even increased according to Matthew.

He said, “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”

Although he has not managed Beyonce’s career for years, “We still talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person that she’s always been.”
