When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and for Beyonce
's father Matthew Knowles, he's doing what he can to scrape by according to TMZ. Apparently Knowles is facing dark financial times and has resorted to capitalizing on his daughter's fame by hawking old Destiny's Child merchandise outside his office.
According to TMZ
, "Mathew Knowles is having baby mama troubles, which might explain why he started selling off some Bey treasures outside his office in Houston last Friday. As of Monday, there were plenty of items available, including a giant Beyonce poster for $200, old tour books for $20, and various pieces of House of Dereon clothing. On a budget? You can find a Solange CD for $1.96. We're told Mathew shunned an attempt to haggle the oversized Beyonce poster down to $14, standing firm at two hundy."
WOW. Not sure what Bey, Solange, Kelly and Michelle will think of all this, but it's pretty #sad to see how far he's fallen from the glory days.
