The Spanish capital's oldest newspaper, ABC, one believed to possess ties with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, ran a report earlier in the week containing quotes from the Los Blancos chief executive indicating that Ozil "wasn't a good professional and was obsessed with women and nightlife" during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Speaking to Bild, the player's father, Mustafa Ozil, blasted Perez for lying about his son's character.
"Just because a man earns a lot of money, doesn't mean he's a man of honour, and Perez is no man of honour," he stated.
"Mesut is supposed to be the scapegoat now and I'm the greedy father. A put-up game. We will defend ourselves legally."
Mustafa also believed that Perez was spinning such rumours to validate the German international's recent sale to Arsenal.
"If Mesut had an unprofessional life in Madrid, then why did he always play?" he pointed out.
"They want to blame him now, because the fans and team-mates are angry."
