Could Beyonce and Solange have another sibling out there? A woman in Texas says yes.
TaQuoya Branscomb, a lingerie model turned real estate agent has filed papers in Texas saying that Matthew Knowles fathered her daughter, born in 2010.
Knowles, 63, already has a child out of wedlock with Alexsandra Wright. Knowles acknowledged his son, Nixon, and was ordered to pay child support of $12,000 a month, but claimed that his income was severely reduced when Beyonce fired him as her manager. Not only were the payments reduced from $12,000 to $2485 a month, a judge ruled this year that Knowles had overpaid $110,000.
Given that adjustment, Wright told reporters earlier this year that she and her son were forced to move to a trailer park. Branscomb is requesting a DNA test, child support and attorney’s fees from Knowles.
Knowles managed his daughter until 2011, a year after divorcing Beyonce’s mother, Tina, his wife of almost 30 years.
Branscomb released a statement on the matter:
“First I’d like to thank my family, my friends, and the public for their love and support. I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. With that being said… it’s in my best interest for this to remain a private matter for now… Above all I am a mother and my daughter’s well being is my only priority. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter. The pictures you see are in no way a representation of who I am. They were taken 10 years ago… And I am now a hard working successful single mother. Honestly I just want what is best for my daughter.”
