Beyoncé’s Dad is sueing London’s Sun tabloid for Reporting Star Had “Cut Him Out of Her Life.”
Beyoncé means the world to her father, Mathew Knowles. So insists Knowles himself in a defamation lawsuit filed against the tabloid, which, he claims in a statement released to E! News, interviewed him and then “knowingly and maliciously misrepresented [his] relationship with his daughter, Beyoncé, and with his granddaughter,” Blue Ivy Carter.
Knowles is suing The Sun for unspecified damages, alleging defamation and breach of contract. News Corp. has not yet returned a request for comment. “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly,” Beyoncé said in a statement in 2011 upon announcing that she and her dad, who had managed her career since her Destiny’s Child days, were parting ways “on a business level.”
