Beyoncé’s dad, Mathew Knowles (pictured), is yet again singing the baby daddy blues, due to another paternity suit from former lingerie-model-turned-real-estate-agent Taqoya Branscomb (pictured below), according to BuzzFeed.
Court documents reportedly filed by Branscomb at a Houston area court allege that the 63-year-old fathered her little girl, who was born four years ago. The 30-year-old mother is allegedly petitioning for a DNA test to determine paternity, as well as child support and attorney fees for her legal team.
The latest paternity suit is not a first for Beyoncé’s former manager. Knowles’ paternity court case with actress Alexsandra Wright was tabloid fodder back in 2010. The extra-marital affair was reportedly the reason Knowles’ 30-year marriage to Tina wound up in divorce court.
Wright, who went on to deliver a baby boy, wound up taking Knowles to court several times to sue for child support. Knowles has claimed that his income drastically fell after his famous songstress daughter reportedly relieved him of his managerial duties. As of February 2013, Knowles was court-ordered to dole out a reported $12,000 a month to Wright, but in April of this year he was able to convince a judge lower the payments down to $2,485 a month, TMZ reports.
Another coup for Knowles came when he was able to convince the judge he had been overpaying Wright and should have only been giving her the $2,485 a month all along. The judge agreed and gave him an overpayment credit for $110,000. Now Knowles is clear with regards to child support payments to Wright for the next three and a half years. Unfortunately, Wright is reportedly receiving public assistance, $300 a month in food stamps and is barely making ends meet for herself and 4-year-old son, Nixon, according to TMZ.
Meanwhile, even though the outcome of the current paternity suit has yet to be determined, it seems Branscomb had better find some pretty high-power attorneys!
