Beyonce‘s dad has a heavy duty tax bill to pay after all those years of managing his daughter’s career went down the drain. Matthew Knowles was the overseer of Beyonce’s rise to fame and served as talent manager for Destiny’s Child during the girl group’s heyday.
Knowles also helped launch Bey’s solo career, as well as the careers of her less successful bandmates, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland.
Now TMZ reports the IRS is coming after daddy Knowles for a hefty $1.2 million in unpaid taxes. Uncle Sam filed a lien against Knowles for the figure, which they say covers his income from earning years 2010 and 2011.
Beyonce fired her dad as manager in early 2011 after several months of giving him the cold shoulder for cheating on and divorcing his wife of 31 years, Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles. It later came out during a lawsuit filed by Matthew that he was also accused of stealing money from Bey’s concert revenues.
Hopefully he socked some of it away so he can pay this tax bill without losing the shirt off his back.
