Mathew Knowles suggests Beyonce, Jay Z made up divorce rumors to 'ignite' ticket sales as a 'Jedi mind trick'

By Gina DiFalco,

Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s dad and former manager, is suggesting that his daughter and his son-in-law, Jay Z, made up the divorce rumors themselves in an effort to boost ticket sales for their joint On the Run tour.

While on Houston’s 104.1 KRBE Roula and Ryan Show, he said the rumors “ignite” ticket sales.

“The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times. So things you see sometimes are [makes poof noise],” he said of the rumors.

He also talked about the elevator fight between his other daughter Solange and Jay Z, saying it helped both the tour and Solange’s album.

“Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 percent,” he said.

Knowles, who reminded everyone he’s still the manager of Destiny’s Child, also hinted that the ladies might do another album and a tour together sometime in the future.

Beyonce will likely not be too happy about these comments. Watch them below:
