And the Paternity Suits Keep Coming! Beyonce’s DAD hit with Another Paternity Suit #Entlaw

In Entertainment Law by FASHIONENTLAW™

One of the most visited and most sought after articles on this blog which continues to generate  media and industry interest and contact; was my take on the feud between Beyonce and her father in the Mathew Knowles v. LIVE Nation et al. lawsuit.

I think that fragile relationship may have just taken yet another tough blow with the recent filing of this lawsuit by TaQoya Branscomb. What a mess Knowles created for himself and his family with the terrible choices he made while married to Tina Knowles. He seemed to have it all but betrayed the trust of his girls, his ex-wife included. Too bad.

“Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles, has been sued by a second woman who claims he fathered her kid … and she’s looking for a payday.

TMZ has confirmed … TaQoya Branscomb filed legal docs in Texas, claiming Mathew got her pregnant in 2010 … the same year Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles filed for divorce. Tina filed because she found out Mathew was cheating on her with another woman whom he knocked up.

30-year-old Branscomb tells us she was a lingerie model but is now a real estate agent. . . .
