Beyonce's dad Mathew Knowles dropped by his attorney's office today, and dropped a bombshell. In legal documents filed today, and obtained by TMZ, Bey's papa claimed her tour promoter Live Nation Entertainment convinced his daughter that he was stealing from her, and she believed them. Beyonce had her lawyers conduct an audit, and then fired him when the audit concluded Mathew had been pilfering money. She then hired a manager who worked as a former executive at Live Nation.

Mathew, for the record, denies all the allegations and wants a judge to give him the right to investigate where they came from. We're not sure who to believe, but chances are Bey will at least get some material for another sad ballad out of this saga.
