Mathew Knowles‘ Music World Management roster just got a little smaller.

AOL’s Black Voices blog reports former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams has decided to end her professional relationship with Knowles. Mathew has helped guide Williams’ career since she entered the Grammy award winning singing group in 2000.

“From my time in Destiny’s Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me,”  a statement released by Williams reads. “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.”

Michelle has become increasingly vocal about her disappoint in the way her projects are handled, namely her last album, 2008’s Unexpected. After building positive buzz leading to the release, she saw it fizzle when numerous release date changes and lack of overall promotion came into play.

This news comes at a not-so-great time for Mathew, who seems to be struggling both personally and professionally. Almost one year ago, another former DC3 member, Kelly Rowland, ended her professional ties with his company. Just last month, reports came out that his wife of 30 years, Tina Knowles, was filing for divorce.

  1. See what fame does to you? It sucks you dry and breaks up families. That’s why fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Theres a price to pay. Michelle i hope and pray you get back in church and no longer compromise yourself.

    • I agree, so many don’t consult God before going into the industry then want to paste His name on everything they do. Michelle needs to recognise from where she’s fallen, get her ambitions right THEN look about what God has for her in the future.

    • I totally agree with you. That is why Beyonce cited that she didn’t want her sister to get involved in the music business. It’s very, very demanding and stressful and you have to sacrafice so much—she even sacraficed her previous childhood friends for fame. Although I believe Bey’s family are shady, I can only feel for Miss Tina–I know what Matt did has to hurt her deeply. After being with someone for almost 30 years, one would think they would be closer and that it wouldn’t have ended like this. I wonder if this is Matt’s first time cheating–and to top it off, he got another woman preg. and she had a son!!!

  2. Michelle williams should portray whitney houston in a biopic

  3. The PLOT thickens!!!!!! Everyone knows that Beyonce was the only Star in the house—-or so they thought. Michelle and Kelly should have left a long time ago. Now they will fulfill their potential….You go Girl!!!
