Beyonce's father Mathew Knowles is slamming an article in London's Sun, which quoted him as saying there's a "bitter rift" between him and his son in law Jay-Z.
In a press release -- bizarrely written in several different fonts -- Knowles says he was initially prepared to ignore the article because it was filled with "transparent" lies, but decided he had to take action after it was circulated online. In addition to denying the rift, the statement also says, "[Knowles] also never stated that he has not met his granddaughter Blue Ivy. When in fact, it has been well documented that he has met his granddaughter, a fact that was made clear on Beyoncé's HBO documentary, seen around the world with him holding his granddaughter."
The statement adds that Knowles had been told in advance of the interview he would not have to discuss his personal life and that unless the Sun makes an "immediate retraction...full legal action will proceed."
