Mathew Knowles Hit With Another Paternity Suit


Beyoncé ‘s dad, Mathew Knowles, has been hit with another paternity suit by a second woman who claims he fathered her child, reports BuzzFeed.

30-year-old Taqoya Branscomb filed a petition in Texas on May 30, claiming Knowles got her pregnant in 2010. In the legal documents, Branscomb is requesting Knowles take a DNA test for the female child, and is also requesting child support and money for her attorney’s fees.

This is not the first time Knowles has been the subject of paternity drama. In 2010, he acknowledged that he fathered a child with actress Alexsandra Wright and was ordered to pay $12,000 a month in child support in February 2013, but the amount was later reduced to $2,485 after Beyoncé fired him and his income significantly decreased.

News of the affair with Wright led to his divorce from former wife Tina Knowles. She filed for divorce in 2010 after nearly 30 years of marriage.

Knowles’ newest alleged child was also born in 2010. The mother, a former lingerie model, is now a real estate agent.

Mathew Knowles’ representatives have not commented on the matter.
