Beyonce: 'Dad Never Manipulates Me'

Pop beauty BEYONCE KNOWLES has slammed rumours her manager father MATHEW manipulates her, insisting she is very much in control.

Many fans fear the curvy DESTINY'S CHILD star is falling into the same trap as THE JACKSON FIVE, who were managed by their controlling father JOE JACKSON.

But Knowles is adamant she has always had a very normal family life.

She tells New York Post columnist LIZ SMITH, "People expect my father to be like Joe Jackson, because that's been the pattern when parents manage children.

"People think that he just controls everything and does everything, but I actually control everything.

"People think I have the same story as the Jackson Five, and I have a completely different story.

"I had a very healthy, happy childhood. My mother (TINA) made sure of it, and I love her for it."
