Beyonce’s dad Mathew Knowles is selling a load of her stuff in a MASSIVE garage sale

Because that’s totally normal celebrity dad behaviour, isn’t it

Celebrities’ dads! They’re just like ours, except even more embarrassing and cringe-worthy, and when they do something embarrassing and cringe-worthy it’s immediately papped and tweeted about, thereby compounding the embarrassing cringe-worthiness by a factor of several billion.

And so to Beyonce’s dad Mathew Knowles, who is currently making his eldest daughter lock herself in a bathroom and bite down, hard, on her arm in squirmy cringeness. Why? Because he’s only started a ruddy great big garage sale to get rid of a pile of souvenirs from her early career. WHY BEY’S DAD WHY.

According to TMZ, Mathew – who this year has been embroiled in a SECOND paternity suit regarding a love child – is selling off a bunch of crap Destiny’s Child paraphernalia to raise money for all his love children free up some prime storage space.

Among the items being flogged off are a giant Beyonce poster going for a sweet $200, which some chancer tried to buy for $145 – oh HELL NO – and a load of House Of Dereon clothing, which is the line Mathew’s ex-wife Tina Knowles owned.

Erm. There’s also a CD by Bey’s younger sister Solange on sale for the bargain price of $1.96. So. Gonna make for a pretty awkward Christmas dinner, we’re guessing.

But hey, Daddy’s gotta do what Daddy’s gotta do. If anyone’s popping by his office in Houston today, try to grab us a signed 1998 Destiny’s Child calendar, yeah?

The singer's first look for this year's VMAs was a risque LBD with sheer paneling all over her butt. She totes pulled it off, too. Not literally, obvi.
