Beyonce’s Father Said ​”Fuck No!” To Destiny’s Child Working With R.Kelly

Billboard

Beyonce’s Father, Matthew Knowles, speaks on not allowing the group to work with R.Kelly.

Surviving R.Kelly has the industry buzzing about R.Kelly’s past predatory and pedophilia behavior. And in the midst of R Kelly attempting to sue Lifetime, more evidence os surfacing. Matthew Knowles, the father of Beyonce, reveals that he kept the singer away from his daughter’s group, Destiny’s Child, in an interview with Metro.

Matthew Knowles says:

‘R Kelly was managed by Sony, by someone I won’t name, and at that time, they would almost force you to record with [their] artists. ‘And R Kelly wasn’t cheap – it was $75,000, plus travel costs, so we’re talking $100,000 for a song. ‘I personally rejected the song, because I didn’t think it was a good song. Not just because of [his] reputation – this was around 1998, we had just begun to hear some of those things.”

Knowles also revealed that rumors of R.Kelly preying on little girls factored in his decision. In addition to this, a source told Metro that R.Kelly wanted to work with Destiny’s Child. Knowles, and his wife Tina, rejected Kelly, and refused to let him work with the group. Destiny’s Child became one of the few artists in the 90’s that did not work with R.Kelly.
