The British retail tycoon Philip Green has faced allegations of sexual harassment, and Ivy Park said in a statement said;

“After discussions of almost a year, (Beyoncé’s) Parkwood has acquired 100 percent of the Ivy Park brand,”

It said Green’s Topshop and Arcadia businesses will fulfil existing orders to Ivy Park. No financial details were disclosed.

Ivy Park sells items such as hoodies and leggings, part of a trend toward so called athleisure. Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, has a six-year-old daughter called Blue Ivy.

Green’s representative referred to the Ivy Park statement, without further comment. A representative of Beyoncé could not be reached for additional comment.

The deal was first reported in the Financial Times.

Green, one of Britain’s best known businessmen, was named in parliament last month as having taken legal action to prevent publication of allegations of sexual harassment and racial abuse of staff.

In a statement last month Green denied having broken the law and said his businesses fully investigated employee grievances.
