Beyoncé Has a Half-Sister: Paternity Test Proves That Mathew Knowles is a Baby Daddy Again

It’s official: Beyoncé and Solange have a half-sister, and she’s only a toddler.

A paternity test has confirmed that Mathew Knowles, father of Queen Bey and Solange, is also the father of a child with former lingerie model TaQoya Branscomb.

Knowles was hit with the paternity suit in July, during which Branscomb (now a real estate agent) alleged that Knowles impregnated her in 2010, shortly after divorcing his wife Tina in 2009.

Now take a deep breath, because it only gets worse.

This marks the second paternity suit for Knowles. The first was filed by Alexsandra Wright, who conceived a son with Knowles while he was still married. Their son was four years old this April when Wright was forced to move to a trailer park outside Los Angeles.

According to Wright, she could no longer pay for her home after Mathew’s child support payments were halted. Mathew Knowles had been “overpaying” Wright, and due to his dwindling cash flow (Mathew was fired as Beyoncé’s manager in 2011 amidst accusations of theft), Knowles was given a three-year reprieve from paying her child support.

Despite the 62-year-old father’s shaky financial situation, TaQoya Branscomb will be seeking child support payments.

Whew. In between Elevatorgate, divorce rumors and Beyoncé’s Instagram Photoshop controversies, we do hope that the Knowles family will be hearing better news soon.
