Mathew Knowles, the father of the singer Beyonce, is big in the music business. He built his daughter’s career and has gained the respect of moguls around the world. But he hasn’t gained a good reputation as a husband and father and seems to have an appetite for affection that far exceeds that which can be fulfilled within the confines of his troubled former marriage.
TMZ is reporting that Mathew is now the subject of yet another paternity suit from a woman who says that he is the father of her child. TaQoya Branscomb filed legal documents claiming that Mathew got her pregnant back in 2010. That was the same year that Beyonce’s mother Tina filed for divorce and the year that the father parted ways with his superstar daughter.
The 30-year old woman has an interesting past as a lingerie model. She says that she is now a real estate agent, and stands to gain financially if she is rewarded additional financial support for her child. This is the second woman in the last five years to file a paternity suit against Mathew Knowles. The first was Alexsandra Wright, who says that the businessman should pay for the son they created together.
As a result of the previous case, Mathew was ordered to pay $12,000 per month in support. But the number was eventually cut to $2,485 after his income dropped. This led to Ms. Wright publicly calling on Beyonce to acknowledge her little brother and offer financial support for the family. She also says that the reduction in child support led to she and her son being homeless. Maybe she needs to get a job.
As a result of his most recent lawsuit, Knowles is asking that the woman get a paternity test and prove that he is the father. The problems just keep piling up for Mathew, while his daughter’s stock is rising every day.
