Singer, Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles has in an interview with Power 105.1 in New York fueled conspiracy surrounding his daughter’s age after he declared she was the ‘exact same age’ as someone two years older.
Mathew, who used to manage Beyonce and her former band Destiny’s Child, said his daughter, whose date of birth is listed as September 1981 as being the same age as fellow pop star Pink, who was born in September 1979. He also referred to his 34-year-old daughter as being the same age as R&B singer Usher, who was born in October 1978.
“(Destiny’s Child) had a competitiveness, L.A Reid had a rival girl group at the time, and I’ll bet you don’t know who the lead singer was… It was Pink! And she was the exact same age as Beyonce. Then you had Usher, who was the same age, they were all 14 or 15 years old, living in Atlanta,” he said during the interview.
