Beyonce’s father entangled in another paternity lawsuit

Former lingerie model TaqoyaBranscomb has claimed that pop singer Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles, is the father of her of her 4-year-old daughter Koi, according to leaked court documents.

Citing court documents filed in May this year, emerging reports claim that 30-year-old Branscomb has claimed that 63-year-old Mathew Knowles fathered her little girl.

Asking for a DNA test, a declaration of paternity and child support, the lingerie-model-turned-real-estate-agent claimed Knowles got her pregnant in 2010. She has also requested the court to order Knowles to pay the legal fees that she would incur in the ongoing battle.

She said in a statement, "I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter. And I am now a hard working successful single mother. Honestly I just want what is best for my daughter."

This paternity lawsuit is not a first legal action against Beyonce's father. Earlier in 2010, Knowles' was entangled in a similar paternity court case with actress Alexsandra Wright.

In that case, Knowles was ordered by court to dole out $12,000 per month to Wright, but in April this year he was reportedly able to convince the court to drag down the payments to $2,485 per month. It is said that it was Knowles extra-marital affair with Wright that forced his wife Tina to divorce him after thirty years of marriage.
