Destiny's Child to make a comeback?

REUNION RUMOURS: Destiny's Child make be making a comeback, according the group's manager Mathew Knowles

BEYONCÉ'S FATHER and manager of Destiny's Child Mathew Knowles has hinted at a possible reunion for the famous girl group.

The manager suggested that the R&B divas Beyoncé, 32, Kelly Rowland, 33 and Michelle Williams, 34, may be prepping for a tour next year, according to the Mail Online.

The 63-year-old music executive spoke to the Roula And Ryan Show on Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE and said: "Folks don't know it but I am still the manager of Destiny's Child.

"When you see Destiny's Child on TV and you see them doing songs together slowly, slowly – now they’ve done two, they were recently on TV – I don’t know, it might be another Destiny's Child album coming."

Although the group officially disbanded in 2006 and Rowland is currently expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon, and his daughter, Beyoncé has a two-year-old daughter, Knowles continued: "There might be this tour that makes history, Destiny’s Child featuring Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle. Can you imagine what that would be like?"

Digging for more details, Roula and Ryan then asked Knowles to "cough twice if that is happening in the next year", which he did right away.

The Bootylicious trip were last seen onstage together at the 2013 New Orleans Superbowl when Beyoncé was joined on stage by Rowland and Williams during her half-time show.

And although there have been rumours that the father and daughter are currently estranged. Mathew maintains they are still as close as ever.

He said: "She's still just my girl. We talk every Sunday. She's still the humble, generous person she's always been."

The father-of-three also candidly reflected on the now infamous elevator incident between his other daughter Solange and Beyoncé's husband Jay Z at this year's Met Gala in New York.

"It's called the jedi mind trick," he said, laughed. "Everybody's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."
