Hello hotness.  Beyonce & her hot bod posed it up with an old school pale blue Rolls Royce during the Holiday in what looks like the Hamptons.  She and her hubby Jay-Z and baby girl Blue hopped a heli to head out to the one of the most luxe parts of NY:

And Bey & her sis Solange have something else to celebrate…or maybe not since we doubt they even acknowledge this next step their dad took with his woman.  They didn’t even go to the wedding.

Mathew Knowles’ rep confirmed he married a real estate agent/former model last week in Houston, Texas.  Nope, this isn’t the mother of his out-of-wedlock baby.  This is a new woman we knew nothing about.  But according to USA Today, they were engaged for a year and a half.

61-year-old Papa Knowles’ new wife is 48-year-old Gena Charmaine Avery.  Mat & Tina Knowles were divorced back in 2009, and since papa is still a Rolling Stone…he didn’t take too long to wife someone else up.  And here’s the pretty lady, the new Mrs. Knowles:

NO NO NO…I DIDN’T SAY THAT! Mathew Knowles FILES DEFAMATION Lawsuit OVER DISPARAGING Remarks About Beyonce + Lauryn Hill RANTS About RACISM

 photo matthew-knowlesj-1.jpg

Mathew Knowles plans to take a British tabloid to court after it printed what he called a mispresentation of his relationship with Beyonce and Blue Ivy. Read his statement inside….

 

Music World owner Mathew Knowles is suiting up for a fight now that he’s dropped a bombshell lawsuit on THE SUN, a UK tabloid for "knowingly and maliciously misrepresented [his] relationship with his daughter, Beyoncé, and with his granddaughter."  

You’ll recall that we told you about a salacious interview printed in The Sun that painted the relationship between Beyonce and Mathew as "tense" and even insinuated that he had not met his granddaughter Blue Ivy.  Of course, we found out that Mathew had indeed met Blue Ivy once Bey’s HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream aired.  And now, Mathew is suing for unspecified damages, defamation and breach of contract. In a statement to E! News he said,

"My daughters and my family mean the world to me," he said. "The barrage of repeated falsehoods spawned by the British Sun’s defamatory article has been exhausting and personally damaging to me. No matter how many papers it sells or web hits it generates, The Sun, like any newspaper, needs to maintain a basic level of journalistic integrity. The Sun crossed the line when it went after my family. The Sun needs to be held responsible for its lies in a court of law. This happens too often to too many people, and it is simply unfair."

News Corp., the owner of The Sun, has not responded to the lawsuit.  No surprise there…

 

And in strong political statements…..

Ms. Lauryn Hill has posted a long blog about reverse racism.  And it’s all stemming from her big IRS case she’s been going through.  Here’s a portion of the essay….

MLH On Racism
The concept of reverse racism is flawed, if not absolutely ridiculous. Most, if not all of the negative responses from people of color toward white people, are reactions to the hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that they were shown by white people for centuries. Much of the foundation of the modern world was built on the forced free labor of black peoples. The African Slave Trade, the institution of slavery, colonialism, its derivative systems, and the multiple holocausts throughout history, where whites used race as the defining reason to justify their oppression, conquest, and brutal treatment of non-white peoples, are how race became such a factor to begin with.

The initial claim by the oppressors, followed a moral imperative (so they said) that people outside of Occidental and European birth were in savage and cursed conditions, and that God justified the captivity of these people, and the rape and pillage of their lands.

Ironically, these oppressors would try to discard this same God, who supposedly justified this brutality, in the name of Darwin, whose famous line ‘survival of the fittest’ was used to justify criminal behavior once the Bible could no longer be used as a hiding place for economic domination and evil intention.

Spirituality and morality were replaced by capitalism, and with it a conscious shift of focus toward the exploitation of the vulnerable.

In order to justify reverse racism one would have to first create an even playing field, undo the generations of torture, terror, and brutality, and then judge whether or not a non-white person is in fact a racist. This approach would require people to examine the need/addiction to feel superior to someone else for no justifiable reason, and the myriad policies: Spiritual, political and social, that it bore. True dominion is self evident and not the result of sabotaging another in order to achieve it. That would be an illegitimate as well as a fleeting position. The Universe, will eventually seek to right/balance itself.

 

Oh Lauryn.  Read the entire piece here.

SPEAKING OUT: Mathew Knowles Says It Was “Incredibly Painful” To Say GOOD-BYE To Beyonce….As Her Manager

 photo Matthew_Knowles_Beyonce_Knowles_zpsc852cff1.jpg

For the first time ever, Mathew Knowles has spoken out about leaving his role as manager of his superstar daughter Beyonce, saying it was
"incredibly painful."  Read more inside… 

 

Mathew Knowles has broken his silence about the what really went down when his business relationship with daughter Beyonce went south.  In an exclusive interview with The SUN, he opens up about shifting his role from business manager to grandfather about how painful that process was.  Here are the highlights: 

On the decision to part ways…
“It was hard for me to let her go — it was hard for both of us to let each other go. And let’s be clear on that. She didn’t let me go, we both let each other go. That’s a big difference.”

On where their relationship stands…
“This was not a normal ending of a business agreement. This was a dad and a daughter and it was incredibly painful and it had some difficulties. 
Normally I hate to talk about anything personal, but it would be a lie if I did not say it has been difficult.

On moving forward….
“…I try to always have a positive mind about things and you got to do it the right way.”

On Blue Ivy…
"The beauty of being a grandad is you can always give them back. You get to do all the fun stuff and not the harder things."

In her HBO documentary, "Life Is But A Dream" you’ll recall the "Love On Top" singer speaking out about the parting of ways saying,

"Life is unpredictable but I feel like I had to move on, and not work with my dad. And I don’t care if I don’t sell one record. It’s bigger than the record, it’s bigger than my career. It’s just too stressful, and it really affects your relationship. I needed boundaries, and I think my dad needed boundaries."

Now that both Mathew and Beyonce have put some boundaries in place, we can only wonder if his affair–which produced a baby–is also holding up their relationship.  Neither have yet to discuss that aspect.

BABY MAMA DRAMA: Mathew Knowles Baby Mama Says He THREATENED Her + Chief Keef Getting Sued BY A MIDDLE SCHOOLER For CHILD SUPPORT!

 photo 2a333c78_zps83362c61.jpg

It may be MLK Day and Inauguration Day…but the foolishness doesn’t stop.  We’ve got baby mama drama from Mathew Knowles and Chief Keef inside..

Mathew Knowles’ baby mama (yeah, the woman he knocked up while he was married to Beyonce & Solange’s mom Tina) feels threatened by Mr. Knowles.  And she’s asking for HIM to pay more in child support in order to protect her baby….from him.

TMZ reports that Alexsandra Wright claims she received a letter from Pappy Knowles back in September 2011 saying, "You hurt my family. There’s a price to pay."

So…she’s worried that their 2-year-old son they have together, Nixon, is in danger.  Interestingly, she wants Mat himself to up his $ 12K/month child support payments to cover a "secure, private school."

And since Mat’s income has drastically decreased since Beyonce fired him last year, the judge may shoot down extra expenses and actually LOWER his payments.  He has been paying his support faithfully and claims he didn’t agree to the school payments because they "didn’t agree" on a school.

Meanwhile, Mathew showed up at the Stellar Awards in Nashville this weekend.  And even snapped a pic with former-now-reunited Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams as she did her hosting duties.  Guess they’re still cool….

In other baby mama drama news, 17-year-old "I Don’t Like" rapper Chief Keef is caught up in some ish.  The controversial dude, who folks blame for keeping the culture of violence alive in his hometown of Chicago, has been accused of impregnating a middle schooler.

The name or exact age of the middle school girl is unknown, but she has filed a petition in Chicago’s family court saying Keith Cozart–Keef’s real name–is the father of her baby girl back in 2011.

She could have been anywhere from 6th grade (12/13 years old) to 8th grade when getting pregnant, and Keef would have been about 15 at the time.  And yes, this still counts as "criminal sexual abuse" in Chicago since both parties are between 9 and 17 years old.  Keef will likely only face charges on that if the girls’ parents press charges.

Reports state, "The girl is suing Keef for an undisclosed amount of child support, including health insurance and other medical expenses." 

Chile….

Mathew Knowles HINTS At Destiny’s Child REUNION + Serena Williams And Brandy STAR On “Drop Dead Diva”

Mathew Knowles has hinted there may be a new Destiny’s Child album and reunion in the works. Get the deets inside and see photos of Brandy and Serena Williams hard at work on "Drop Dead Diva."

 

Mathew Knowles chatted in up with BlackVoices recently were he gushed over granddaughter Blue Ivy, hinted at a Destiny’s Child reunion and talked about his other reality show ventures.  Here are the highlights:

Congratulations on the recent U.S. premiere of “Breaking From Above.” Are you planning on shooting additional episodes of the show?

Yes, we’re absolutely thinking about doing that. We’re in the discussion phase right now. This is all a part of a joint venture with MTV International and so Teen Nick falls within their Viacom system. And it’s the older demo for the channel [13 to 21], with a sweet spot around 18, 19-year-olds. Which is also the sweet spot from my girl group, From Above.

Will there be a Destiny’s Child reunion tour to complement the two projects?

Not on the first release. It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it. And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible. The hardest thing would be choosing which songs they’re going to do, because we would want to mix it up with solo hits and Destiny’s Child hits. We would have to throw away some number ones from off the set list [Laughs].

Destiny’s Child is one of the eight girl groups that you’ve managed in your career. In your opinion, what does it take to put together a successful girl group?

Unfortunately they all weren’t successful, I wish I could say that [Laughs]. But I think with girl groups it’s all about the relationships that the members have with each other. It really boils down to that. And then the second thing is each member accepting what their role in the group is. Followed by great songs, work ethics and talents.

Earlier this year your granddaughter, Blue Ivy, was born. How does it feel to have your first granddaughter in the family?

Blue Ivy is a special gift, so nothing but love. The same goes to Juelz, my grandson. So I’m a proud grandpapa.
 

 

And on tv….

Tennis star Serena Williams and R&B singer Brandy will star on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s critically-acclaimed drama series,"Drop Dead Diva," on Sunday, July 8th at 9/8c.

For this new episode, Serena guest stars as a high profiled attorney who helps Brandy fight a case against her ex-boyfriend who owns his own law firm.

Hmmm….Serena’s clothes seem a little frumpy for her to be such a high flying attorney.

PROUD GRANDAD: Mathew Knowles GUSHES Over Blue Ivy, SAYS Jay & Bey Will Give Her Whatever She Wants

MUSIC FAB: BeyoncĂ© WORKING On 5th Album?! + ALL Mathew Knowles’ Artists Have Been BANNED From Radio One!

Rumor has it that Beyonce is already in the studio working on album number five!  Get the deets inside and find out about Mathew Knowles’ artists getting banned from Radio One by owner Cathy Hughes.

Does she ever slow down?  Apparently not since not even pregnancy has stopped Queen Bey from starting her fifth album.

The Dream, who wrote her mega hit "Single Ladies" and a few of the tracks on her 4 album, recently revealed that the two are re-teaming for her next project.

 "She’s ready to work,  She’s crazy! She never stops doing anything. I don’t know if [pregnancy] is going to slow her down. She’s just incredible with doing things, I don’t know how she’s going to do it, she’s just a maniac… in a good way."

Good luck on the next project Bey!  I’m sure the baby will inspire some great tracks.

SIDEBAR: We all want Beyonce to be "great" but don’t we also want her to take some time off and enjoy motherhood? She has accomplished way too much for homegirl to slip our minds. But do you boo!

 

And in other Knowles news….

We told you earlier that Beyonce was no longer working with Mathew Knowles.  Now Cathy Hughes and her radio/tv empire have turned their backs as well.

Cathy Hughes’ cable channel TV One is suing the BET Network, MTV and Music World Music for violating its exclusive rights to the Essence Music Festival. Mathew Knowles’ Music World Music is in the mix because his company brokered the deal for the Essence Music Festival broadcast with TV One.

But now, Mathew is being accused of re-issuing the content BET, MTV and BET’s Centric Network despite TV One’s four-year exclusivity agreement. Messy……

So in response, Radio One has pulled all of Knowles’ Music World songs and artists from their radio stations nationwide.

“All Radio One personnel were told to pull all Music World artists out of rotation immediately and indefinitely! We were told that the mandate came straight from Ms. Hughes and that there would be ramifications for anyone playing or mentioning a Music World artist or song on air,” said one Radio One employee.

Damn!

And this could hurt Mathew because his company primarily focuses on gospel music as the employee added,

“Radio One owns at least 12 gospel stations across the country – that’s the majority. It’s hard for artists to sell CD’s without radio airplay! Right now Music World definitely isn’t getting any from Radio One.  Le’Andria Johnson’s song ‘Jesus” was in heavy rotation on Radio One stations one day and the next day she wasn’t getting any spins. New music by Trin-I-tee 5:7 and Micah Stampley, as well as recurring hits by Brian Courtney Wilson have been pulled as well.”

Things done in the dark….

 

WHAT’S REALLY HOOD? Mathew Knowles’ Mistress Claims He Tried To BUY THEIR BABY For Beyonce & Jay….And Now Dates “Celeb Fit Club’s” HARVEY?!

Oh what a tangled web…

 

Mathew Knowles’ former mistress, Alexsandra Wright, who he made 20-month-old baby Nixon with, is making some outrageous claims about Mat trying to BUY her baby for his own daughter and son-in-law.  And, on top of that, she’s now raising their son with her new boyfriend–celebrity trainer Harvey Walden!  Deets and the first official pics of Nixon inside…

Pappy Knowles’ jumpoff tales just got more messy.  In the new issue of tabloid Star magazine, Mathew Knowles’ mistress of 18 months, 40-year-old Alexsandra Wright, is showing off her and Mat’s baby, Nixon, for the first time.  And she’s also telling some eyebrow-raising tales about Mathew trying to buy their baby….for his own daughter Beyonce & her husband Jay-Z to raise.  She claims to Star:

‘My first thought when he asked me if I would give up our child to Beyonce and Jay-Z was, ‘Are you out of your mind?’

‘Nothing in the world, no amount of money would make me give up my child, you can’t buy my child from me!’

‘Maybe Mathew thought money could buy anything. I don’t know why he suggested it.’
 

Alexasandra claims she recorded their alleged conversation, yet no recorded audio or video has been released…yet.  It’s unclear when exactly Mat asked her to give up the baby, if he did at all.  And it’s unclear as to whether Mat wanted The Carters to raise baby Nixon as their OWN child and/or in place of their own baby people are for whatever reason doubting they are actually having.  Or if he wanted them to raise Nixon just because…for whatever reason.  And this is if these convos even went down at all.

Alex says she and the 60-year-old Mat were living together in Beverly Hills while he and Tina were still married.  And she filed a paternity suit in October 2009 when she was 6 months pregnant when Mat denied being the father.  Yet she also says, Mat prayed for a boy and really wanted the child.

She also says she doubts if Beyonce, who reportedly hasn’t spoken to her dad since she fired him as her manager several months ago, knew anything about Mathew making an offer to buy the baby.

‘I don’t believe that Beyonce or anybody else has a clue about what was flying out of Mathew’s mouth.  I don’t think it was anybody but Mathew.’

Meanwhile, chick has found a new man to step in–"Celebrity Fit Club" trainer Harvey Walden!  If you remember, he dated contestant Kimberley Locke for 2 years, and they broke up March of last year.  How did he and Alexsandra even meet?!

Alex is reportedly receiving child support from Mat, after she got fired from the Interscope exec job he got her that we exclusively told you about.  But is she just telling fictional tales to get more money?  Or will her story pan out as true?  Time will tell….
