Beyoncé also Suffered Sexual Harassment

Mathews Connolly, the father of renowned American singer Beyoncé, says his daughter at the age of 16, also suffered sexual harassment by two members of the rock band.

In a video interview, he revealed that in the early 2000s, Beyoncé's band Destiny Child went on a tour with another band Juggle Edge.

Beyoncé was 16 years old on this occasion, while the young men of the Jugged Edge Band were between 21 and 22 years old.

He also revealed that the two young men sexually harassed Beyoncé as well as Kelly Rowland, another of their band's singers.


It should be noted that Beyoncé's father has also been her manager.


Sharing details of the incident, Matthew said: "I still remember Beyoncé and Kelly calling me and saying that two young men from the Jugged Edge band were harassing us constantly, after which I immediately called the band. I was off the bus in the middle of the journey. '


The 67-year-old Matthew Connolly, however, avoided mentioning the names of the two young men in the band.

During the interview, he said he was still ashamed of his decision to travel with the two bands together.

Beyoncé's band Destiny Child was considered to be a popular band of that time, a band composed of four singers after a split a few years later.
