Kelly Rowland & Mathew Knowles

About damn time, right? R&B singer Kelly Rowland has dropped Mathew Knowles from the roster as manager of her career. According to reports, the agreement was mutual and a statement from Rowland herself said the following:

“Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance – both as a member of Destiny’s Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family.”

Mathew Knowles said in a statement:

“After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost and as a dad I can only have love for Kelly.”

Smart move, Kelly. Smart move.
