Although the singer's father, Matthew Knowles, is no longer her manager, the two maintain a strong relationship within their family. "He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly," the star told Us. "I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepeneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."
