1. BEYONCE

Since her Destiny's Child days, Beyonce has been managed by her father, Matthew Knowles. Recently, however, the two ended their business partnership, after word surfaced that Matthew had fathered a love child with a woman he'd been with secretly for eighteen month. There was even fear at Beyonce's label, Columbia, that the news would hurt her career.

Fortunately, she was able to move on without her familial problems leaving a trace of damage to her career. And with a new album, 4, on the horizon, she's about to shut the game down once again.
