LATEST: Beyonce Knowles' reported rift with Alicia Keys on their current tour has been blamed on her father MATHEW.

Tough-talking Mathew, who has masterminded his daughter's career, allegedly instigated the bad feeling between the two superstars on the LADIES FIRST tour after becoming angry with the constant stream of rave reviews given to talented Keys.

An insider tells British tabloid the DAILY STAR, "They're cooler than ever, but Matthew's not happy that Alicia's been getting better reviews than his daughter.

"He's the diva."
