“Now remember, the girls are minors. They’re 16-years-old the guys are 21, 22-years-old,” he explained. I got a call from Kelly and Beyoncé… saying that they were constantly being harassed by two other members of Jagged Edge. I couldn’t have that.” Tell-all-book excerpt: “I put them on the same tour bus because I managed both of them, and it would have saved both groups a significant amount of money… One of the chaperones at the time wasn’t the strongest of the chaperones. I got a call one day from Kelly and Beyoncé, and it was basically “We’re tired of this harassment by Jagged Edge.” “They were sick and tired of being harassed by two members of the boys’ group.” Matthew Knowles goes on record with My Celebrity Life at to set the record straight on him never using the word sexual in his interview with Vlad TV or his book.
My Celebrity Life excerpt: “…It talked about Jagged Edge and that they um sexually abused, I think was the word maybe... and I never in my book used the word sexual whatsoever and that’s a real strong allegation against someone in today’s climate, so whoever that writer was and initiated those words of untruth…that is not something cool to do at all.”.
