“Now remember, the girls are minors,” Mathew said. “They’re 16-years-old the guys are 21, 22-years-old… I got a call from Kelly and Beyoncé—and I talk about this in the book in detail—saying that they were constantly being harassed by two other members of Jagged Edge. I couldn’t have that.”
Knowles (Beyoncé’s father and former manager) made the accusations about the quartet when he sat down with VladTV. You can watch it via the player above.
In case you’re wondering why he’s out running his mouth, Knowles is getting publicity for the release of his tell-all book that will reportedly detail his life as the high-rolling manager of Destiny’s Child, and he claims that while the girls were just teens on tour with Jagged Edge (which is composed of Brian Casey, Brandon Casey, Richard Wingo, and Kyle Norman), two of the 20-something-year-olds were giving Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland problems.
Now, Bey’s daddy didn’t specifically name who those two Jagged Edge members were, but Brian Casey took to his Instagram to accuse Mathew Knowles of using the story in an attempt to sell books.
Interestingly, both Brian and the official Jagged Edge Instagram account shared a photo of the words “A lie don’t care who tell it.” meanwhile, Brian shared a few more thoughts on his page:
“One thing I have learned from my 20plus years in this business and it’s always something,” Brian wrote. “It’s actually funny how far people go to sell something ??♂lol but I give All Praises To The Most High At all times Shalawam love ones.”
