Over the last several years, it has been reported that superstar singer Beyoncé and her father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, have had a strained relationship ever since she fired him as her manager. But despite the rumors, few people know Bey like her father and during a recent public engagement Knowles opened up about his daughter and told the crowd that one of her weaknesses is public speaking.

The incident happened when Knowles was speaking at Howard University and was explaining to a young group of students the importance of knowing your artist’s weaknesses and how that knowledge helped him as a manager.

“Everybody thinks that they’re the greatest and they should. We as label executives, we have to know the limitations of the artists. I can tell you all my artists, the limitations,” Knowles said.

Knowles then decided to use Bey as an example and explained that he understood that his daughter, despite her undeniable stage presence and performance ability, struggles with speaking in front of large groups of people.

“See, I would never have Beyoncé up here public speaking. She’s not good at it. Solange was just at Yale. She’s incredible at it. But I know all of my artists’ weaknesses. They all have weaknesses,” Knowles explained.

Knowles talk about his daughter’s weakness comes just weeks after he cleared the air in a recent interview that he, Bey and Solange are all on great terms, despite rumors that he’s estranged from his daughters.

“I communicate with them weekly. I would describe my relationship with my daughters as loving,” Knowles said before pulling out his phone and showing a string of text messages with Bey. “I don’t care what people say, Jonathan. I just want them to say the wrong thing, now, and I’m gonna see them in court.”

What do you think of Knowles’ confession about his daughter’s weakness?

    This bum bitch is a disgrace to his family and also to his fraternity. He should go somewhere, sit down, stfu, and take care of his kids. Loser! I am glad to see Beyoncé and Ms. Tina excelling without him.

        Hey fool, it’s obvious that you’re a baby’s mama.. Matthew doesn’t take care no sees his kids. Read court cases, you dumb, ignorant bish before speaking.

          you need to get your ebonic dictionary cause you catchin up with beyonce in ignorance and dumbness, mathew does see his 2 kids , its beyonce and solange that dont , that was in the press several times . when the baby moma stories come out , they only said he was behind , not one of those women claim he was a dead beat , he supports his kids , why would he support beyonce and not them? please , your late.
          you need to get fact instead of lieing on the man . we all know he funded beyonce career , and how you know those two babies want be stars one day .smh . you dont … mathew will behind the scene to all he can for his kids

            Typical baby’s mama response. Just because your kids fathers aren’t taking care of their kids, doesn’t make a man who doesn’t financially, or mentally, support his outside kids, but supported the ones he has with his wife, doesn’t make him a great dad. Until you read the court docs., stfu and keep it moving.

    He lets everyone know how Beyonce’s “not good at” public speaking and then sings Solange’s praises. Something tells me that his relationship with both daughters isn’t good.

      i know him and solange dont get along so he has to be real careful what he does with her, beyonce really tries to get along with him ,but like most snobby females solange and beyonce is the appitemy of pain for him . thats not a nice thing to say about your daughter but its real true , she must of miss some english classes cause she dont verbalize well’ and she talks country like with a texas twang . mathew is the blame for that cause he didnt allow her to finish school i think she dropped out to tour in the group he still raised them well they had a nice home and opportunity alot of kids can only dream of ,, he didnt make them famous for the money only his goal was to make them a career so they wouldnt have to depend on others , and he may have know beyonce was lacking in knowledge and not smart academically so he was trying to cover that too .. she seem like she may have been attention defeciate disorder.. or needed to be treated for it . .all her videos as a child show her wond up singing dancing and well!? she just didnt appear normal to me.

      You are. Probably right

    sometime he says the ovious sh…t we know they love him , but jayz is a major pain for him jayz fired him because he claim mathew had embezzeled money from bees accounts when he managed her . and mathew is the one who fired all the other girls so bee could have a career being she was the yellow bone that survived the group . he knew that blond hair and new image would push her up there . so did jayz but there can only be one lion in the den . and he didnt make the cute .
    yes he bought sh.t without her permission and over paid his self but please !!! he didnt steal nothing cause she owed him for loosing his job to fund her career which was slow. i dont know what she thinking but she would have fought a losing battle causing him to be hated by fans . . she knew that would not fly, since he was the one who actually put her on the map ..

    he does all these appearances and stuff because of her phone calls , , he needed to catch up his child support on 2 kids that beyonce still dont let play with blue ivy . . what is she thinking , when them kids are old enough someone gonna pay by then she will be history she knows .
    its unfair for her and solange to distance themselve from those kids .that your blood!! dam
