Rowland And Knowles Split

Kelly Rowland and Matthew Knowles announced Jan. 28 that he is bowing out as her manager.

Knowles has guided the singer’s career since she joined what would become Destiny’s Child as a kid and even helped raise her.

Both called the split amicable and say they will always be family. Rowland, who turns 27 in February, did not say who her new manager will be.

Knowles still manages his daughter Beyoncé.
