Beyonce's father has been accused of defrauding his former lawyers to the tune of $50,000 for refusing to pay a legal bill.
Mathew Knowles allegedly hired Lang Ferrer Law in November last year, but then refused to pay them over the course of the following months, the firm alleges in a new suit.
The filing claims Knowles hired the firm to represent him and his company, Music World Properties, for an unstated legal matter.
The firm alleges in the documents it claims to show proof that it followed through on its end of the deal, and provided services worth $49,120.35.
However, the suit alleges Knowles was the one who then did not follow through on his obligations, and that the entire sum of money remains outstanding.
The filing claims it was a deliberate act by the music manager, and describes it as: 'part of a ruse to secure free legal services'.
Knowles is then accused of holding a secret auction over Super Bowl weekend in Houston this year, where he sold off memorabilia and other items from his time managing Beyonce and the group, Destiny's Child. Now they want $50,000 paid to them.
