So those Beyonce-Jay Z divorce rumors were all bullshit just to sell tickets? No way…

Remember how the WORLD was all worried about Beyonce and Jay Z being on the path to divorce? Like three days ago? Turns out that may have just been a ploy to sell more concert tickets. Color me shocked.

Next thing you’ll be telling me is that Beyonce wasn’t really pregnant with Blue Ivy either.

The best part? They reportedly called the whole thing a “Jedi mind trick” and have done it before. has learned, her father Mathew Knowles has spoken out with new claims that the whole scandal was a “Jedi mind trick” orchestrated to “ignite” ticket sales for the couple’s On The Run Tour!

Knowles made the explosive claims on the Roula & Ryan show on 104.1 KRBE in Houston earlier this week. Asked about the infamous elevator incident earlier this year, and continuing divorce rumors, Knowles — Beyonce’s former manager — was unequivocal about his opinion.

“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on,” he said. “So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.”

Oh yeah, that whole fight in the elevator fiasco between Jay Z and Solange Knowles? That was probably bullshit too.

Incredulous, one of the hosts asked if it were truly possible that Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles staged and leaked the tape of themselves arguing in an elevator at an after-party for the Met Ball in New York earlier this year.

He said, “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”

It’s important to note that not only is Mathew Knowles Beyonce’s dad, he was also once her manager so he knows quite a bit of what’s been done in the past.

The real question is, why is he telling us all of this? Is this just another “Jedi mind trick?”
