Michelle Williams has become the latest DESTINY'S CHILD star to part ways with Beyonce's manager dad MATHEW KNOWLES, after a decade under his representation.
The singer has been managed by her former bandmate's father since she joined the girl band in 2000.
But Williams has announced she is walking away from Knowles and his Music World Entertainment company, so she can take her career "in a new direction."
The move comes a year after ex-bandmate Kelly Rowland ditched Knowles as her manager.
In a statement, Williams says, "After much prayer and consideration I have decided to part ways from my management team, Mathew Knowles and Music World Entertainment. From my time in Destiny's Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me. We've shared great success together. However, as I move in a new direction in my career, I felt it was time. I wish Mathew Knowles and the Music World Entertainment family all the best."
