Matthew Knowles is shutting down rumors that he’s been banned from his daughter Beyonce’s delivery room as she prepares for the arrival of her twins. The famous father sat down with Jonathan Martin of Houston’s FOX 26 to set the record straight, claiming he has a “loving” relationship with both Bey and his other celebrity daughter, Solange, despite popular belief.

“I communicate with my daughters weekly,” Knowles told the outlet.

“I would describe my relationship with my daughters as loving,” insisting he’s never been estranged from his daughters. Rumors that he was not on speaking terms with Bey and Solange began after it was revealed that Knowles had fathered a child with another woman while married to ex-wife Tina Knowles-Lawson.

In addition, Knowles stands firm on the fact that the delivery room rumor is nothing but a work of fiction. “That’s a lie. There’s a difference between a rumor and a lie. That’s a bold lie.”
