Mathew Knowles, father of Beyoncé and the man behind Destiny’s Child is releasing a tell-all book about the group’s success.
The 67-year-old sat down with Vlad TV and revealed that both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland were victims of sexual harassment by two members of group Jagged Edge while they were on a joint tour.
“Now remember, the girls are minors. They’re 16-years-old the guys are 21, 22-years-old,” he explained. “[…] I got a call from Kelly and Beyonce – 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.”
Mathew said he kicked the men off the bus at the next tour stop.
It’s unclear which members of Jagged Edge were responsible — the group consisted of Brian Casey, Brandon Casey, Richard Wingo and Kyle Norman — but if you recall Jagged Edge’s ‘Unsung’ episode, it was revealed that twins Brandon and Brian each began a secret relationship with Destiny’s Child members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.
According to JE, it was their relationship and an incident involving LeToya’s mother that got them kicked out of the group.
Interesting. Watch Mathew explain it all below (starting around the 4-minute mark).
