Girl, Get Yo Family: Beyonce’s Uncle Larry Says She Only Married Jay-Z Because She Was Tired Of Being Alone
I really thought Beyonce had avoided the fame curse when it comes to family members and friends trying to use personal things against you to get their 15, or 20, minutes of shine. In all the years she’s been in the business, no one seems to have snitched on any dirty secrets she might have or lent their personal opinion to the public media for selfish gain. And then that untarnished record went all downhill yesterday when Celebuzz had “A 20-Minute Conversation With Beyonce’s Uncle Larry” — literally.
Where the site dug up Uncle Larry, who I’m assuming is Tina Knowles’ brother since his last name is Beyince, I can’t say. But I guarantee Bey, Tina, and Jay are going to push him right back into that hole he crawled out of just to see his name in online print. Speaking on everything from Beyonce’s childhood to Matthew Knowles, and Bey’s marriage, it seems safe to assume someone found Larry’s telephone number by luck, called him up and started asking him questions, and instead of saying “no comment,” this man just rattled on and on about his little neice like he was talking to a good friend from the past and didn’t realize Bey is a mega superstar. Check out the Q&A and some of his suspect insinuations about Jayonce’s relationship.
On The Rumor That Beyonce Is Pregnant Again…
“I have no idea. I haven’t heard nothing, except that she’s on tour.
“Even then [when she was pregnant with Blue Ivy] she tried to keep everything secret like it’s a really big deal. She didn’t want everyone to know.
“She did tell me she wants to have more, but I didn’t know how fast. I think now would be too soon. She just had one and she needs time to really raise that baby.”
On Beyonce Before Becoming Mrs. Jay-Z…
“He was after her and she wasn’t. She told me she wasn’t too particularly fond of him.
“I would see him with her and pictures of them, I heard rumors they were together and she told me ‘no.’ You know how women get that look like ‘eww.’ I guess she wasn’t attracted to him.
“But as long as he treats her well and makes her happy, that’s all I ever wanted. He’s okay with me.”
On Beyonce Getting Married…
“I was surprised she married him. I think she got tired of being alone. When you have as much money as she does she has to be careful about people wanting her for her money. And apparently he had as much as she had.
“I don’t think the family cared. Just that whatever he’s doing he’s making money [and] made it okay.”
On Beyonce’s Father Mathew Knowles…
“I wasn’t surprised she fired him [as her manager]. I’m glad, actually.
“I know he was getting 20 percent of whatever she made, and from what I know he wasn’t doing much for her. All I knew is that he wanted her to be famous and rich so he could be rich.
“One reason I was glad she got married is because she was no longer under her dad’s control. He is a control freak.”
On Beyonce’s Early Rise To Fame…
“She didn’t want to be famous. She just wanted to be a normal child. She loved to watch cartoons and be with her friends.
“She was forced into singing.
“It took away her whole childhood. Everything was geared toward being famous. She used to get angry at [her father] a lot for taking away her childhood. That affected her.
“I would prefer she was just my little niece, but she’s a lot better off than most women.”
Larry, you are so outside the circle of trust now. This is why Bey didn’t tell you she was dating Jay-Z years ago (and why she wouldn’t call to tell you if she’s pregnant) — you run your mouth too much! Is anyone else imagining mama Tina cursing him out right now or is that just me? Regardless of how left-field Uncle Larry’s interview was though, we are still a bit curious about how much of it is true. What do you think?
