Mathew Knowles Faces Second Paternity Suit

Another woman claims Beyoncé's father knocked her up.

Published July 8, 2014

Oops, he did it again? Mathew Knowles is facing another paternity suit by a woman claiming he fathered her child, TMZ reports. This would be the second time a woman came looking for child support from Beyoncé's father.

Former lingerie model TaQoya Branscomb filed legal documents in Texas claiming Mathew got her pregnant in 2010, the same year his ex-wife, Tina Knowles, filed for divorce on grounds of infidelity. Like Alexsandra Wright, the first woman who filed suit against Knowles for paternity, Branscomb is seeking financial support for her child. 

Knowles has not admitted paternity of Branscomb's child, nor commented on the suit. He was ordered to pay $12,000 per month in child support for his first love child, but those payments were reduced to less than $2,500 per month after Knowles lost his job as Bey's manager. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
