Moreover, he also pointed out the law firm that conducted the audit proving him guilty. According to him Live Nation Entertainment and the law firm were both responsible for the situation. He even wanted to take the company to the court. According to TMZ,

“Mathew insists the theft accusations by Live Nation are false, and he wants the judge to give him the right to take depositions of various people at Live Nation, to determine just how they concluded he was a thief,” 

However, after all that, the case died down quickly. As it is natural that Beyonce did not want the world to focus on a professional split with her dad.
