Beyoncé’s dad Mathew Knowles, 67, is sharing some sad news.

In a new interview with “Good Morning America’s” Michael Strahan, Knowles revealed that he has breast cancer.

In a teaser for the sit-down, Strahan asked, “How was it to tell your family about your diagnosis?”

Knowles is dealing with a rare type of cancer; only one in 1,000 men develop breast cancer.

Knowles recently opened up about his relationship with his daughters Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. He toldPaper magazine, “I have a great relationship as a father with not just Beyoncé, but people forget I have this talented, gifted kid named Solange, who is a Grammy winner and has had a number one album. People tend to think she does not exist.”

Despite his cancer diagnosis, Mathew is still working. In July, he signed on as Chief Marketing Officer of Bangi Inc., which buys and leases real estate for weed farms and dispensaries.

While noting that he uses marijuana for “medical reasons,” he emphasized to Page Six, “I’m a marketing guy. I like to think outside of the box. I like to be on the beginning of a trend and not at the end of it.”

Knowles is famous for managing Destiny’s Child until the group disbanded in 2006. He has even handled the solo careers of band members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland.
