It’s no secret that Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles have been a constant target of divorce rumors, however Matthew Knowles is convinced it was all a show.

During his interview with 104.1 in Houston on Thursday (August 28), the “Crazy in Love” singer’s father called his daughter and son-in-law’s antics a “Jedi mind trick.”

Bey’s dad declared, “I know, from experience, because we've done this, there's a tour going on. So you have to sometimes ignite that tour -- it's called a Jedi mind trick! The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time."

As for the infamous elevator scene at the Met Gala between Jay and Solange Knowles, Mr. Knowles continued, "All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."
