Apparently it was all ‘a Jedi mind trick’ to boost On The Run tour ticket sales.
We weren’t expecting this. Beyoncé’s own dad Mathew Knowles has claimed that the Beyoncé and Jay Z divorce rumours were created BY the couple themselves. WTF?
In a recent radio interview, Mathew was asked about that lift incident involving Solange, as well as the relationship status of Bey.
But rather than dismiss the rumours, he reportedly said that they were started by his daughter and son-in-law to boost ticket sales of their On The Run tour, calling it “a Jedi mind trick.”
“I know, because we’ve done this,” he said on the Roula & Ryan show on 104.1 KRBE in Houston.
“From experience, there’s a tour going on,” he continued. “So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.”
The shocked hosts then went on to ask whether that meant the lift video leak was manufactured, to which he replied that it was, suggesting that it was all part of the wider “trick”.
“All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!” Hmm.
Debate over whether the pair were splitting heated up in July, when Bey changed the lyrics of her song Resentment during a performance, to suggest that her husband had been cheating on her.
That soon snowballed into talk of separate houses, marriage counselling and even a claim that Beyoncé isn’t even Blue Ivy’s mother.
The couple looked happier than ever at this year’s VMAs, which we hope means a split isn’t on the horizon, but do YOU think they could have created this whole story themselves?
