Beyoncé and father Mathew Knowles end feud

Beyoncé and her father Mathew Knowles have ended their feud.

The 'Run The World' hitmaker was joined by her "proud dad" backstage at her 'Formation' world tour concert at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas earlier this month, where they happily posed for a picture together.

Beyoncé's mother Tina - who is now married to actor Richard Lawson - posted the snap on Instagram and wrote: "Houston Concert proud dad!!!! (sic)"

The 34-year-old singer fired Mathew, 64, as her manager in 2011 and their relationship was believed to have been strained ever since.

In 2010, Mathew acknowledged that he fathered a son, Nixon, with Alexsandra Wright after being hit with a paternity suit and was ordered by a court to pay $12,000 a month in child support.

His admission he had fathered Nixon resulted in his 30-year marriage to Tina ending in 2010, but he remarried, to Gena Charmaine Avery, in June 2013.

And he recently refused to speculate about the subject of Beyoncé's latest album 'Lemonade', after she appeared to reference Mathew's cheating and claim her husband Jay Z had cheated on her.

He said: "There's no way we can get into the mind of Beyoncé. Only Beyoncé can answer specifically who she was talking to ... I would rather not get into speculation. My answer is I don't know."

Brian 'Kenny' Moore, Beyoncé's former manager, previously revealed he isn't surprised by the allegations Jay Z cheated on her because she is just "reliving" the heartache Tina endured during her marriage to Mathew.

He shared: "That's how it appears to be. Beyoncé's reliving her mother's position. Her father's cheating is well known and just because you're Beyoncé, it doesn't mean the cycle will change.

"Most girls marry guys exactly like their fathers. If you have an a**hole father, the daughter will usually marry an a**hole guy. Beyoncé saw the infidelity her mother put up with and it was hard on her. But Beyoncé, being in the same position, I'm damn sure she wouldn't get a divorce.

"Some in their camp told me Jay Z isn't cheating but if he has, it would be the second coming of the father and nobody needs that."
