Fans are furious with Matthew Knowles after he appeared to confirm news of the twins' birth.

Beyonce fans are dragging the 'LEMONADE' star's father, Matthew Knowles, after he confirmed news of the twins' birth online.

Taking to his Instagram account on Father's Day, the music executive posted a picture message filled with party balloons that reads:

"Happy Birthday to the twins! Love, Grandad".

News of the much-anticipated birth had been rumoured in days previous, but had remained officially unconfirmed until Knowles' post.

Following much speculation, TMZ revealed that Bey delivered a boy and a girl on Monday but remained in hospital due to a "minor issue" after welcoming the twins.

And while many fans were excited upon hearing the announcement, many were furious with Bey's father and former manager for leaking the news before the singer herself.

Hive members blasted Knowles, labelling him as a "snake", "annoying" and a "swine".

Beyonce is yet to confirm the news herself.

Meanwhile, Bey's mother Tina Knowles raised questions after posting an Instagram video of herself in New York over the weekend.

Fans think it's highly unlikely that Tina would miss the birth of her new grandchildren, leaving many to believe that the twins may have arrived sooner than suspected - or that they haven't actually been born yet.
