Matthew Knowles 1

Do Beyonce and Solange have another sister that they don’t know about? Possibly. The famous sisters’ father, Matthew Knowles, was recently named as the father of Taqoya Branscomb’s daughter in court documents filed by the lingerie model in May.


Buzzfeed reports,

“In the petition, Taqoya Branscomb alleges Beyoncé’s 63-year-old father is also the dad of a female child born in 2010 in Harris County, Texas. Branscomb is attempting to make Knowles take a DNA test, and is also requesting child support and money for her attorney’s fees.”

This will be Matthew Knowles’ second child since 2010, if the paternity test proves that he is the father of Taqoya’s child. Matthew was deemed the father of Alexsandra Wright’s son, Nixon, in 2010, and was initially ordered to pay $12,000 per month in child support. Such amount has since been reduced to just over $2,000, as Matthew successfully convinced a judge that his income was no longer capable of sustaining a $12,000 per month child support commitment.

Taqoya is from Houston, Texas.
