Mathew Knowles did an interview with Houston's Fox 26 where he opened up about his relationship with his daughters, Beyoncé and Solange

Over the past few years, reports have been swirling about Mathew being estranged from his family. He's cheated on his former wife and mother of Bey and Solange, Tina Knowles-Lawson -- who's gotten remarried to Richard Lawson, and this led to his and Tina's divorce. This, understandably, caused a rift between him and his kids. Bey even let him go as her manager. 

But, Mathew reveals that even though they've had their "ups and downs," everything is fine with Bey and Solange. "I communicate with them weekly. I would describe my relationship with them as loving," he started the conversation. "I don't care what people say, Jonathan. I just want them to say the wrong thing now and I'm gonna see them in court."

Mathew also spoke about why he's a bit more proud of Solange than Bey, in terms of their successes. "I'm a little more proud of Solange and I'll tell you why. She chose to do it her way because in the beginning, we wanted to more mold her into a pop star. And that is not who she is and we were wrong...she wanted to do it her own way and she did."
