Beyoncé and Jay Z seem to take the "actions speak louder than words" approach to setting the record straight.
Bey's father, Mathew Knowles, however, doesn't seem to mind chatting about the rumors surrounding his famous family. On Thursday, for example, he opened up to The Roula and Ryan Show on 104.1 in Houston about reports claiming Beyoncé and Jay Z's marriage was in trouble. (A rumor which Blue Ivy Carter 's parents seemingly put to rest Monday at the 2014 MTV VMAs.)
"I know, from experience, because we've done this, there's a tour going on," he said, referring to Bey and Jay's On the Run tour. "So you have to sometimes ignite that tour—it's called a Jedi mid trick! The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time. So things you see sometimes are [poof noise]."
Mathew was also asked by The Roula and Ryan Show about daughter Solange and the elevator incident with Jay Z, specifically if the stars "knew it was being recorded and wanted it to get out there."
"All I know is the Jedi mind trick," he replied. "Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."
Mathew also made sure to point out he is still the manager of Destiny's Child. (He managed daughter Beyoncé's career from the late '90s up until 2011, when they mutually decided to part ways .)
"I don't know—there might be another Destiny's Child album coming," he said with a shrug. "There might be this tour that makes history that features Destiny's Child featuring Beyoncé, Kelly [ Rowland] and Michelle [ Williams]. Can you imagine what that would be like?"
