Beyonce's father Mathew Knowles is demanding editors at a British newspaper print a retraction of his recent interview over allegations they published "fictitious statements" and "blatant lies" about his relationship with his daughter.

The pop superstar's dad managed the Halo hitmaker's career until 2011 and he supposedly opened up about their professional split to The Sun in an article printed earlier this week (begs25Mar13).

He was quoted as saying, "Normally I hate to talk about anything personal, but it would be a lie if I did not say it has been difficult. It was hard for me to let her go. It was hard for both of us to let each other go, and let's be clear on that. She didn't let me go; we both let each other go."

The piece also suggested Knowles had yet to meet his granddaughter Blue Ivy, and now he has threatened to take legal action against the publication if bosses do not print a public apology.

His representative tells AllHipHop.com, "The British Sun article is a prime example of libel and slander and irresponsible journalism, filled with lies, inaccuracies and misquotes.

"Many of the statements were completely untrue, without any substance whatsoever and were defaming, with malicious intent to attack Mathew Knowles and his family... He did not state that any 'bitter rift' exists between him and his daughter, Beyonce, or that he has been pushed or cut out of her life. He also never stated that he has not met his granddaughter Blue Ivy...

"The reporter told Mathew that the interview was a feature on him, his career and what he is doing now. However, no information about his career was even included in the article released. As a result, the reporter and the British Sun misrepresented their intent, proceeded with a deceptive agenda, and created their own sensationalised story filled with blatant lies and manipulated quotes, in efforts to grab headlines and sell more copies of their newspaper without regard to how their slander can damage lives.

"The publication of these fictitious statements have caused damage to Mr. Knowles' personal and professional reputation as well as hurt his family... This kind of irresponsible, malicious and misuse of journalism cannot be tolerated and we are requesting an immediate retraction by the British Sun or full legal action will proceed."
