Beyoncé’s Father Gets Served With Second Paternity Suit (VIDEO)
Cue Beyoncé’s “Dèjá Vu” track because Papa Knowles is getting served with another (read: second) paternity suit. A 30-year-old Houston-area woman claims Mathew is the father of her daughter. If the paternity test reads positive for Mr. Knowles, it looks like Bey has herself a new half-sister.
According to BuzzFeed, Taquoya Branscomb alleges Bey’s dad fathered her child, who was born in 2010 in Harris County, Texas. The mother is requesting Mathew, 63, take a DNA test, and pay child support and her attorney's fees.
This shouldn’t sound too foreign to Mathew. Back in 2010, he was hit with a paternity suit from actress Alexsandra Wright; he later acknowledged that he had fathered her son. In 2013, Mathew was forced to pay $2,486 a month in child support.
Once news of Mathew’s affair went public, it ended his nearly 30-year marriage to wife (and Bey and Solange’s mom) Tina. But the repercussions of his affair didn’t end there. In 2011, Beyoncé announced she and her father had “mutually agreed” to end their business relationship.
"I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level," Beyoncé saidof Mathew, who was her manager ever since Destiny’s Child. “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me.”
Let’s just hope these latest allegations aren’t true; we’re not sure how much more drama the Knowles family can handle!
