Beyoncé’s Father Wishes Her A Happy Birthday Via Instagram

Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles took to Instagram today to send a a birthday message to his daughter Beyoncé. While standing outside on a balcony in what appears to be downtown Houston, he recorded a view of the city and a clip of himself shedding a few tears. Here’s what he said:

“Morning Beyoncé. It’s September 4th, God I can remember the day you were born. My first time seeing a baby, boy I was actually in the room. Um, this is your city, your city loves you. But more importantly…more importantly I love you. I love you with all my heart, I’m so proud of you. I just wanted to tell you happy birthday.”

Mr. Knowles and Tina Lawson (Beyoncé’s mother) divorced after many cases of infidelity on his part. In the film version of ‘Lemonade’ Beyonce recites a monologue written poet Warsan Shire which reads:

“You remind me of my father, a magician. Able to exist in two places at once. In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 a.m. and lie to me. What are you hiding?”
