The latest woman claiming to have a baby by Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles, has released a statement saying she never intended for her news to go public and would like to keep the matter private.
Too late for that.
Taqoya Branscomb, 30, is claiming that Mathew Knowles is the father of her 4-year-old daughter, Koi. In her statement, she also says published photos of her doing splits are a decade old, and she is now a “working successful single mother.”
Read the following statement regarding her lawsuit against Mr. Knowles below:
“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.”
According to Branscomb, Knowles got her pregnant in 2010.This is around the time that other reports say she was hanging with Solange Knowles, clubbing with her around 2008. TMZ has acquired a photo of the two together.
Branscomb’s daughter was born in 2010, the same year Knowles and wife Tina divorced.
Per the lawsuit filed on May 30, Taqoya is asking for a DNA test, a declaration of paternity, child support and money for her lawyer fees.
