Shocking news for the Knowles family this morning as it has been revealed that Beyonce’s Father Mathew may have a second love child. The news comes as court documents were filed by a 30-year-old lingerie model named TaQoya Branscomb who is claiming that Matthew fathered a female child in 2010.
According to the reports, TaQoya is requesting child support from Beyonce’s father. Mathew already has one love child a son named Nixon, he was forced to admit he was the father of the child in 2010 an admission which was thought to have had a heavy weighting on his divorce from Beyonce’s mother Tina.
Mathew fathered the child with actress Alexsandra Wright, they are currently still caught up in a legal battle about child support payments. It is thought that Mathew’s daliences with other women put a lot of strain on his relationship with Beyonce.

Mathew famously managed his daughter and Destiny’s Child. However in 2011 Beyonce announced that she would no longer be working with him. ‘I am grateful for everything he has taught me,’ Beyonce said at the time, ‘I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps.’
Beyonce also told Oprah that it was difficult to work with him. ‘It took a while for me and my dad to have an understanding. When I turned 18 and started handling my business more, he went into shock. And we had our issues. I’d say ‘No’ to something, and he’d book it anyway,’ she said after she stopped working with him, ‘Then I’d have to do it because I’d look bad [if I didn't]. We would fight sometimes, and it took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realize, ‘Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t wanna do something, I can’t make her do it.’
She has never commented on her Father’s first love child, neither has her sister Solange, however, it is widely thought that Beyonce was not happy about the news. In fact it is thought that she has never met her little brother. More news as we have it...
