Beyonce's Father Denies Ever Hitting Her

(Radio.com) Matthew Knowles has remained relatively quiet since his daughter Beyonce released Lemonade on April 23. But he wants to be clear about one thing in particular: He never hit his daughter.

"I can say I have never in my life hit my daughter," Knowles said on Sirius XM's Make It Plain on April 25. 'So she has never been a slave to the back of my hand because I didn't believe in that" (via US Magazine).

His response follows something Beyonce read as part of the transition between songs on her HBO special. Somali British poet Warsan Shire penned the spoken word poem, which includes the line, 'Did he convince you that he was God? ' Are you a slave to the back of his hand? Am I talking about your husband or your father?" Read more here.
