    Beyoncé's father Mathew Knowles was her manager for most of her career, as a member of Destiny's Child and as a solo artist. But she dropped the axe in 2011 and declared her independence, firing her dad.

    She has finally revealed why she severed the manager/client relationship in her Life Is But a Dream doc. It was because she preferred the father/daughter one. "When you're trying to have an everyday conversation with your family you have to talk about scheduling and you have to talk about your album and performing and touring," the singer said. "It's just too stressful and it really affects your relationship…. I wanted my dad."

    It did take Bey and Mathew Knowles a minute to find their ground. It was difficult after they split.

    What do you think of Beyoncé's choice to fire family?
