Rumors have been floating around that Beyoncé has banned her father, Mathew Knowles, from the delivery room as she prepares for the birth of her twins. But those rumors are false.

Papa Knowles told Fox 26, “I communicate with my daughters weekly.” 

“I would describe my relationship with my daughters as loving,” adding that he’s never been estranged from his daughters or gone without speaking to them, rumors that started after it was revealed that Knowles had fathered a child with another woman while married to ex-wife Tina Knowles-Lawson.

Furthermore, Knowles says he hasn’t been banned from Beyoncé’s delivery room, calling the rumors lies. “That’s a lie. There’s a difference between a rumor and a lie. That’s a bold lie.”

Bey’s dad isn’t just shutting down rumors, either. Apparently, Knowles has a play in the works about Destiny’s Child told “from my eyes.” Idris Elba is reportedly set to play Knowles.
