Report: Beyonce’s Father Hit with Another Paternity Suit


Dave M. Benett/Getty ImagesBeyonce‘s 63-year-old father, Mathew Knowles, has reportedly been slapped with yet another paternity suit.

BuzzFeed reports a woman named Taqoya Branscomb filed court documents in Harris County, Texas, on May 30, claiming that Bey’s dad got her pregnant in 2010 and is the father of a female child born that year.  Branscomb, 30, is asking a court to order a DNA test, and is also seeking child support and legal fees.

Branscomb is a former lingerie model turned real estate agent, according to TMZ.

Mathew Knowles admitted in 2010 that he had a son with Alexsandra Wright. That was the same year that Mathew’s wife, Tina Knowles, filed for divorce after nearly 30 years of marriage.

In February 2013, Mathew was ordered to pay Wright $12 thousand a month in child support, but that amount was later reduced to $2,485 after Knowles  claimed his income had declined substantially.
