"I know, from experience, because we've done this, there's a tour going on," Queen Bey's dad said, referring to the couple's On The Run tour and divorce rumors. "So you have to sometimes ignite that tour — it's called a Jedi mind trick! The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time."

As for Elevator-gate, Mathew was asked if Jay, Beyonce, and Solange knew they were "being recorded and wanted it to get out there." The singer's dad's response? "All I know is the Jedi mind trick," he replied cryptically. "Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent." 

While the trio released their own statement following the Met Gala brawl, the powerhouse couple opted for actions over words when it came to addressing the split rumors.
