Beyonce’s Dad Mathew Knowles Claims She’s Older Than She Says

Beautiful liar? Beyonce might actually be two years older than she says she is — at least according to her father, Mathew Knowles. The singer’s dad suggested as much during an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 late last week.

Mathew — who managed Destiny’s Child — claimed that his eldest daughter is the exact same age as Pink, who just turned 36 last month. Beyonce was born in 1981 though, which makes her 34.

“These guys had a competitiveness. L.A. [Reid] had a girls group, but I bet you don’t know who the lead singer was — Pink,” Mathew, 63, said on the radio show. “She’s the exact same age as Beyonce and there used to be this battle of who was better.”

He continued: “You had Usher, he was the same age. They were all 14 or 15 years old living in Atlanta.” (Usher turned 37 this month.)

Age conspiracy theories have been following Beyonce for years. Back in 2006, TMZ cited a document from the Texas Department of Health that claimed that Jay Z’s wife was seven years older than she says.

But there’s more. Gabrielle Union reportedly once said that she was good friends with Beyonce when they were teenagers. Union, however, is nine years older than the singer.
