Beyonce‘s father, Mathew Knowles, began managing her career from the beginning, so when she gave him the axe in 2011, it came as a shock.

Everyone expected drama and for their personal, father-daughter relationship to sour because of it. The singer has come clean about why they parted ways on a business level, after remaining notoriously mum on the topic.

When the time came to sever ties as manager and client, the fiercely independent Beyonce chose to do so in order to become dad and daughter again. “When you’re trying to have an everyday conversation with your family you have to talk about scheduling and you have to talk about your album and performing and touring,” she said. “It’s just too stressful and it really affects your relationship…. I wanted my dad.”
