Ivy Park sells items such as hoodies and leggings, part of a trend towards 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.
